I do use facebook but not to the extend that every hour i put up a post about my where-abouts or what i am feeling or what i am doing. I do see many people in facebook does that and letting everyone know what they are doing and how they feel today and stuffs like that. So, how did facebook impact your life? Has it changed you in any way in your life?

Yup. In fact the facebook helped me to connect back all my primary school friends and manage to do a re-union gathering through linking all the old friends together in facebook. It's just some powerful social tool today.

It has become like a telephone for me too. I can easily see what my former classmates are doing and communicate with them without making a phone call or sending a text message.

I opened my Facebook everyday but I seldom post on any of my whereabouts,When i notice that someone message me then that's the time I need to take a look.On the other hand,Facebook did a very good impact in my life because I meet a lot of new friends and just recently, I was able to contact my friends during college days,and I'm so happy.so, I could say,Facebook is really a great help in connecting and communicating with friends and relatives.

I use facebook and I enjoy the best of it. It offers me an opportunity to meet new people that are living in distant countries. I make friends in the course of using facebook. I also sell my online product to my facebook friends. There are people who I know that got their life time partner through facebook. So facebook have impacted in my life from the business point of view in the sense that I have use it to sell products to many people across the world.

I find facebook helpful specially in communicating with my superior in the Head Office, or when I chat to a friend, or when trying to locate somebody. But, recently I blocked my account, I don't know what got into me. It's just that everytime I view facebook posts I became terrible sad. Now, I only use email for communication.

Once i used facebook everyday and every hour. I always post something,uploading pictures, chatting with friends. I was always online at that time. Facebook was sucking me time badly. I couldn't do other works properly. Later i decided to put an end to this. So i deleted my facebook account.

wow! you go to the extend of deleting your facebook because you got addicted to it so much? Maybe can still keep the facebook account but just don't login so often will be fine.

No, I don't use Facebook. I've never been interested to have a Facebook account. I guess I'm just not a social person, and my life is completely great without it...

I do know Facebook but here in china,people can't use it which I don't know why. But there's an app like Facebook used by quite a lot of Chinese. And the situation you've mentioned above,also,happen to lots of users. It seems that people wanna others know what they're doing and where they are.

Hi rtslvtwy Facbook is a very good tool for keeping in touch with old friends, especially if they've moved out of the area, and for making new friends. But you have to be careful, like any site. I connected with a few people I hadn't seen for years and then started getting spam e-mails from them which I knew they wouldn't have sent. I know they came via my Facebook connection because it's the only way I'd contacted these people for many years. I don't use the site as much now, and the spam has stopped. So take care.

Well I see Facebook is for perfect people. Perfect in the sense that everything in their life is perfect and for the whole world to see. Your life and other's lives can be compared easily via Facebook. If your competitive, Facebook can help you by checking out on others and comparing them against you. It's a perfect place to flaunt and allow everyone to care about you even if they don't have to.

Before, I use facebook for entertainment because of their addicting games. But when I learned that I can earn online I stopped wasting my time playing on facebook. Now I only use facebook as another communication tool to my friends and families.

Facebook has a major impact on my life. It has become like a living room for me. I can see what my former classmates from college are up to and inform them updates in my life as well. Facebook has clearly changed the way I communicate with everybody I know.

I'm using Facebook less and less. The main reason I have an account is to stay updated with friends and family that live far away. I used to post a lot and share a lot, but I am also doing that less and less. I feel like I need to be a lot more private right now. Nothing is wrong, I just need to be private. There is too much on Facebook between the drama, complaining, judging, and other immature acts. I used to enjoy going on Facebook and updating my status, seeing others, and catching up with others. Now it aggravates me at times. I am checking the account less often than I used to and it helps a lot. I also find myself not updating my status as much. I've even thought of things to say and then decide I won't say them on there anymore.

I guess you can say Facebook has changed my life a little bit. I just signed up with Facebook a little while ago because my friends told me to. I post on it sometimes but my friends like to post on Facebook a lot and tell the world what they are doing all the time and what they are feeling. I do like to post some pictures sometimes and like to play their Facebook games. Sometimes big companies give you free samples of their products if you "Like" them on Facebook and I "Like" them for that.

There were days when people used to long for the letters from their dear ones who are staying at far off places. With the technology developing by leaps and bounds, no distance is too far nowadays with the emergenece of cellphones and internet. Facebook is one the most successful social network which almost every individual owns just like any ID card. Though, FB hasn't changed my life in particular, it definitely helps as the platform to express your views on post. It in one way makes you famous and recognized by lot many.It's nice and fun.

I rarely post on my Facebook account. I would be chatting with friend from the US most of the time when I am not busy. I get to be updated with what is happening to my relatives abroad as well.
