Facebook again

Posted on Friday, October 22, 2010 in Other

As some of you know, I a while back, was debating with myself whether I should join Facebook or not. The end result of that was that I reluctantly signed up. I used to be very negative, but in fact I’ve gradually changed my mind.

It’s like with me being vegan (except the other way around) – on the one hand I’m sorry there aren’t many more delicious flavors of icecream, pralines etc that I can eat (I’m also lactose intolerant), but on the other, I’m grateful I can’t eat those things anymore. If I could, I’d probably be even fatter than I am. (Ok, I’m not exactly fat, but a bit overweight, especially now.)

With Facebook one reason I like it are the games, but those games make me waste even more time there, so the less said about that the better. However, in my defence, I really need a distraction from my life so I’m not apologizing either. I do what I have to do.

Apart from the games, I have come to realize that Facebook has its advantages. Again, some of them might be disadvantages at the same time.

‘Everyone’ is there. It annoys me, but it’s undeniably good to be able to reach all my friends in one place. Almost all my friends (a few are still holding out and I admire that, but I still wish I had a way to contact them more easily).

The ads – strangely enough I like them. Normally, I hate ads, but these seem to be a little targeted and it makes me think I could use them for my own advertising. I’ve found so many useful links in those ads, that I hope other people appreciate them as well. LOL. I never thought I’d say this, but it’s true.

As you must know, I also have causes that I’m passionate about. Facebook (as well as Twitter) is an ideal place to promote them. I only hope it will help. Still, given that ‘everyone’ is there, it should help a little at least.

So, I guess all in all, I have to say that Facebook is alright. Nothing is perfect, but so far I haven’t regretted signing up.
