The Facebook Power

Posted by The Queen Bee at Wednesday, July 15, 2009

My sister once posted this as her shout out in Facebook, "De-stressin' by Facebookin". I found it funny at first but then later realized that indeed, Facebook has now become some people's way of relieving stress. What set Facebook apart from other social networking sites is the fact that it offers a lot of activities for its users with the different applications such as games and quizzes. Most of the Facebook users I know are in Facebook mainly for this reason, most of them are crazy about farming.

However, Facebook isn't just about past time because there are a lot of good things that we can reap out of using this social networking site. Businessmen, for instance, make good use of Facebook to expand their market share and advertise their business for free. In the same way, communities can also make use of Facebook to interact with one another. One community is actually making use of the InTheRooms Facebook App to provide its members a venue to connect to other members who are in the process of recovering from their respective addiction and how much recovery time they have spent. The good thing about it is that they protect their members' privacy by maintaining their anonymity. Now, that explains how the recovery site, InTheRooms got its name because most groups are anonymous from what I learned.

Another thing that's noteworthy about Facebook is the fact that with the 2010 Presidential Elections coming, a lot of aspiring politicians have been using it to their advantage. How? by simply being on Facebook, they can reach a vast multitude of prospective voters. Remember, how fast the call for anti-con ass spread? That's the Facebook power.
