The Dominion of Facebook

We’ve all heard about, and probably experienced the grasp of Facebook on the lives of people today.  Just 7 years ago, the site was launched by the infamous Mark Zuckerberg and since then it has made giant leaps towards taking over our lives.  As of January 2011, Facebook claimed to have over 600 million active users.

Users of Facebook can do a variety of things through the site including plan events, chat with friends, play games, network, advertise, and many more.  Because users can do so many things on one platform, it makes itself a very useful, and addicting, service.

Although Facebook is very useful and good for staying up to date on the latest happenings, in my mind,  it can turn into a sort of addiction.  Lately, I have been trying to stay away from Facebook as much as possible because I realize how much of our time it can devour!  I have recently wondered what college life would be like without Facebook or social media.  Although we wouldn’t be able to plan events or network online, I think it would be much more stress-free because our schedules would be more open.  We wouldn’t have to fight the urge of checking our friends’ status updates every 3 1/2 seconds!

What would life be like without Facebook?

    You know, I bet the Zuckmeister never imagined his college side project to keep his friends together would grow to be this big, let alone have a movie based upon the struggles of it. Facebook has taken control of lives everywhere, many are addicted to it, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t one of those. People are on Facebook 24/7, and I definitely know what you mean about the addiction aspect of it. I really can’t imagine life without Facebook. In many ways, it would be easier, but in many ways, life could also be a lot more difficult without it.
