Oh the things that Facebook can tell us. Who is that in a relationship? Why is this person sad? Facebook makes it so easy to find out every aspect of our friends lives. I'm honestly not sure what I did before the crazy world of facebook. Its an interesting little world out there. Sometimes I wonder who exactly looks at my profile or pictures or other various things I provide my viewers with. I remember the first time I ever heard of Facebook, I was in the ninth grade and these people from the U of A were talking to us about how college students meet other people on campus and Facebook was one of their many tools. At that time you had to be a certain age to have facebook or you had to be in college. Well as soon as it was an open site I was one of the first people at my high school to get it. I loved having new friend requests everyday and messages and at that point I didn't have a cell phone so it was really my only way of figuring things out. Now there is Facebook around the world and even my parents and fourteen year old brother have a Facebook. Thankfully my grandma isn't quite sure how to work a computer so she doesn't have Facebook but I see peoples' grandparents on there everyday. Facebook really is an amazing thing depending on how you use it. If you use it in a way that could be hurtful then you shouldn't use it at all but if it's in a positive way then go for it!
