I love hate my friend Anne for getting me into this addiction. Kainez ka
Now my workdays are peppered with moments when I steal into my Facebook to see what’s up in my friend’s lives and check on who else has been added into my site, who poked me, hugged me, sent me a gift, wrote on my wall, joined my “Grey’s Anatomy” team, sent me a magical gorwing gift or hatching egg, and the list goes on and on. Super addicting I tell you.
I have Friendster and I still love Multiply but this Facebook is in a totally different league, man! I’ve found long-lost friends, colleagues, students, classmates etc… in a matter of days! I’ve only been in it for five days now and I already have 51 friends Suddenly, ang corny na talaga ng Friendster.
Facebook has been described as “the model of a great social networking site. Excellent functionality, easy to use, clean interface, and witty features. Being able to tag your friends in photos is simply brilliant!” on the Big Marketing for Small Business website. It’s founder,Mark Zuckerberg was a student at Harvard when he created the awesome social networking site, the young genius is only 24 years old, and has already landed on the cover of Newsweek magazine.
They say that Facebook appeals more to Generation XY I am definitely a part of Generation X and I agree that Facebook appeals to a certain age group and possibly, even a certain type of personality. The heaviest users, myself included, appear to be those in their mid-30s to mid-40s with obviously, time to spare and lots of creative inclinations. P doesn’t have Facebook and has no intentions of getting one in the near future. “I don’t have the patience for it…” my 16-year old tells me. I believe her generation is the Multiply breed. “It’s so much easier to navigate,” she explains, “And to upload and access everyone’s photos and to comment on them,” she adds. Okay, okay. I still love Multiply too because yes, it’s simpler to navigate and because of all the online shopping sites that I’ve recently discovered. Neverthless, the good thing about these tools is that it has made our mother-daughter bond even stronger - so many sites and stuff to talk about over dinner, after homework, and beyond.
Working at home has become even waaaay more fun!
