Facebook defintely has its uses – to keep in touch with present friends, to make new ones, to find old ones, to gather people for events, to name a few.
But like any cyberspace tool it can be misused, overused or exploited. It all depends on the individuals using the tool. As internet users, we need to be mindful, sensitive and responsible in our power to put words out there into the cyberspace. The power is such that what we type can reach someone a continent away.
At the end of the day, in my view, FB is good stuff. It helps us promote ourselves when we need to, we can connect so well to others using it, in ways that will be impossible/difficult otherwise. But let’s use it with care and consideration!
