Stay Connected With Facebook
Recently, Facebook welcomed its one billionth user. Thatâ€™s 1,000,000,000 people connected with Facebook worldwide! Thatâ€™s an amazing fact and real proof of todayâ€™s global society.
Iâ€™ve been a Facebook user for about four years now. I was a little reluctant to join, mostly because I didnâ€™t understand how social media websites work. But at the urging of my grown children, I checked it out, and now I enjoy keeping up with my family and friends and staying connected with Facebook — a very user-friendly site.
To Friend or Unfriend
The average Facebook user has 245 friends. I have about 150, which is a very manageable number. I have never â€œfriendedâ€ anyone that I donâ€™t know personally because I donâ€™t really care to see updates from strangers. I have â€œunsubscribedâ€ some family and friends because of unwelcome and inappropriate language or political rants. However, by unsubscribing them, rather than unfriending them, I can still view their timelines and postings when I want.
New and Old Photos of New and Old Friends
Itâ€™s fun to post photos, especially those from the past. For special birthdays and other milestones, I dig into my photo archive and post an old family photo. Thereâ€™s no better way to share these treasures with a large audience.
Iâ€™ve been pretty careful about the types of information shared on Facebook. My wall only shows high school and college information. Iâ€™ve even hidden my birth date â€“ not because I donâ€™t want people to know my age, but because itâ€™s a key piece of identity data. Iâ€™m also cautious about my updates â€“ I donâ€™t share that Iâ€™ll be out of town before a trip or vacation, as my house will be empty.
Facebook, along with all social media, has become an important way for companies to connect with their customers and consumers. By â€œlikingâ€ my favorites, I can see and download coupons, special offers and recipes.
I also joined a few special-interest groups. One of them is for fans of a favorite author, Nevil Shute. Through this group I have â€œmetâ€ many engaging people with a common interest, and enjoyed stimulating exchanges. Staying connected with Facebook has opened up so many new ways to learn about the things I love.
I canâ€™t wait to see whatâ€™s ahead for Facebook and other social media sites!
