What others say
I am in love with Facebook
Facebook is a double edged sword. A powerful tool that can help you build connections with people you will never meet. However, use it unwisely, you can become someone everyone hates online.
It is important to note that facebook is increasingly becoming a spam channel, much like traditional e-marketing channels, and this may have an adverse effect on its effectiveness as a marketing platform.
Personally, I have unsubscribed from groups which send multiple emails in a short spam of time.
Word of mouth hasn't quite succeeded here as the process of inviting friends to join a group has become more and more impersonal - a click of a button as opposed to a personal message specifically targeted at one's buddy.
Is just awesome to keep in touch with my friends
The applications, while a very innovative feature, sometimes makes Fb very "messy" to me.
Random people should stop adding, seriously. -____-;;
I'm addicted to it.
Applications in FB is getting less popular now due to the new facebook interface. Notes in FB is getting popular due to the sharing features etc tagging ppl to read and reply in your "25 random things about you" note.
Everyone should be wary of the TOS for all social networks and be aware of any changes made from the point of joining.
It's loading slower and slower.
I often use "share link" feature to promote something from my blog or to do online promotion.
My tweets are "fed" to facebook! Resulted in a lot more interactions.
i think facebook is really subjective :) like i use it for loads of purposes like killing time, contacting close friends when we cant meet! and through facebook i even manage to keep one of my friendships going strong with my good friend whom i almost lost contact with! so, i mean facebook is cool, but i still dislike people whom misuse it..
