If you don’t know what Facebook is capable of, and you are using it, you definitely need to watch this.
With that being said, and after I watched it, I think it’s silly for people to use such a site with such a massive amount of people accessing it each day for them NOT to know what facebook is capable of doing, both positive and negative. Why post a rant about your co-workers on the internet? That’s like publishing a book about how horrible your employer and its employees really are, and then you distributing it on amazon.com (at least in my opinion anyways).
Fortunately, for those people who don’t rant or pout in their posts on their facebook, there are good things being done. Some of those good things involving facebook include raising awareness and find like-minded people to help support a cause you are passionate about. People might say, “well, that’s only two reasons.” Yes, well if you use it “right,” then it might work out for you.
If you have no idea why you are on it or why you even use it, ask yourself: why did you create a facebook page in the first place? If facebook isn’t right for you, deactivate your page. Come back when you are ready, or you have the option to delete it. If you choose to delete your facebook page, then you are given a 14 day period to think whether you want to actually keep it or not. Oh and besides, I don’t think facebook and it’s users will miss you with 50% of its 500 million active users logging on each day (Facebook Statistics).
The only advice I have to offer to people is that if you are going to use something like facebook to get your message across, make sure it’s the right message and for the right reasons and make sure the people who you want to see this message are those people that are the ones receiving this message.
