Are You “Addicted” To Facebook?

Facebook is 10

Today, I read that the world’s largest social network – Facebook – would be 10 years in a few days and I began to think of the many ways I have been impacted by this platform.

Currently, the social network is used by 1.23 billion people around the world, both young and old. Wow, that’s a staggering figure!

I personally am very grateful for the audience I get on Facebook and the opportunity to connect with my over 750,000 fans. It’s amazing, really! With the click of a button, I can connect with people far and near, share information, learn new things or just simply have fun.

The advent of social media has provided lots of benefits for connectivity and it is now much easier to reach the world from one’s little corner. But on the flip side, if time is not well managed, spending so much time on Facebook and other social media platforms doing trivial things could deprive one of other important activities.

However, Facebook has come a long way and I’m glad the founder, Mark Zuckerberg has taken very far the company he co-founded in a Harvard University dorm in February 4, 2004.

As Facebook celebrates this milestone, let’s reflect on the impact of this social media platform.

What does Facebook mean to you? Can you do without Facebook? Are you, like many others, ‘addicted’ to Facebook?

    For me, Facebook means a lot to me. It’s amazing, with the click of a button, I can connect with my friends, family, church members & other people far and near, share information, learn new things. I have being trying for years to connect with my class mates in Primary, Secondary and University to no avail until i started connecting with them through their names & school on facebook. I can’t do without facebook but am not “ADDICTED” to facebook. I love this platform…
