As mentioned previously, i have been a user of Facebook for around 4 years now and will visit the site around once a day to check what my friends are upto. I only have limited information of who i am and where i live and thats mainly there for people trying to find me. The main advantage of Facebook for myself is using it as a method of keeping in touch with my friends and as i emigrated to this country nearly 3 years ago, its a great way in staying in touch with my friends from the UK.
Facebook is also often used by myself and friends to great events and send invites electronically rather than having to send out a group text message or post invitations. Another advantage of the site is having the ability to tag photos after the event and keep them all in one place for everyone to enjoy.
Despite not having a bad experience with the site as of yet, i am conscious of using common sense when post a comment and ensring that i follow the same rules and laws that i abide by in my offline life. As Leigh Dixon rightly points out in her blog that “No platform can ever be better than a face-to-face for satisfaction” and i believe in this digital age that is something we need to remember and continue to make that extra effort and see our friends in person.
