Face value

Facebook is something I have used a decent amount before. There is much to like and much to dislike about it, in my opinion. I can waste a lot of time on it (bad thing). I can see photos of friends who are overseas that I wouldn't otherwise see (good thing). There is little privacy (bad thing). You find out things about people that you don't really want to know, and see photos of people that you don't really want to see (bad thing). It is a convenient way to get in touch with people, and I know that most of my friends check their accounts quite frequently (good thing, I think). When I do something like accidentally de-activate the sim card in my phone, I can tell people to contact me in other ways, which came in handy yesterday. Overall, it's a bit of a love-hate thing!

Yarn in Love


  1. I still prefer to simpler life without becoming addicted to all these Facebook, Twittering stuff because to me, they may be fun or useful for speedy information exchange and dissemination, but they can also be a menace to eat up one's time. I simply can't imagine myself glued to the screen of keep on tweet, retweet endlessly! Time has to be spent wisely as time wasted is not retrievable any more.

  2. I have yet to try facebook but all my friends have and they love it. Mostly for the fact of overseas friends. At least this course will make me try it.

  3. Sounds as if you have the almost perfect facebook balance, the sweet with the sour.
