Facebook is taking over!

What happened to can I have your number and I’ll call you, forms of keeping in contact have changed. People would prefer your full name to search you on Facebook then your number to talk in person. It has become a new craze in order to keep informed about the new events or club themes you have to join the Facebook group. To see the photos from last night’s outing you would have to go on Facebook and comment instead of developing the photo and showing people in person. Technology has changed the way we communicate; I could sit on Facebook all day literally and talk to a large amount of people about anything.

I could see people’s life history through pictures of their childhood, school days and university life. You can search for anyone by using their first and surname; if their profile is not private then click away! The tagging option I believe is a great tool but can be dangerous people could be caught doing something they should not be, parents can see what their children has got up to. On the other hand you can find people in the picture you got tagged in and get their names; it’s an easy link to the pictures you wanted to see.

People lives are now on Facebook it’s a way of keeping up-to-date with the latest gossip, they now have an instant messenger encourage people to stay on Facebook longer. What makes it scary is some people’s lives revolve around Facebook changing their status every five minutes and constantly online, will things ever change?
