Are Friends Jumping the Facebook Ship?

When Facebook first showed up it was like a simple corkboard with pictures and stuff all over the place, like a collage.

Then it became more sophisticated, developed a place for personal information, friends pictures, etc. Everyone could view our “personals” on the Internet.

That was my problem from the get-go, the whole world checkin’ out my business. Didn’t this start with MySpace?

Still, FB caught on like wildfire. People my kids grew up with were e-mailing asking me to be their FB friend. Not to mention my own friends.

Let’s take a look at the popularity of Facebook:

So, what happened?

All of the above.

And below.

Posting photos has become a caution; they’re tagged with times and dates. Ask a member of the Mythbusters TV show who shared a pic of his ‘hot’ auto on FB.

People take advantage of the site: many don’t use it for fun—they stalk, cyberbully, find information for divorce battles, rob victims, etc.

How can FB provide security for millions of users? This is the number one issue that crops up when I read FB articles.

Facebook says that you can set up more than one account to avoid security problems. Say what? Who has the time?

Think I’ll stick with the grocery store deal … same thing at work. There’s that old corkboard: car for sale, photo of Jim ‘n Jane’s new baby, Mary’s cat is missing-call…

Ever had a problem with FB? Will you leave if something better comes along?

Let me know. I’d like to hear from you.

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
