Happy 10th Birthday Facebook! Taking Social Media To A New Level

It was 8 years ago that I joined this social media website to stay in touch with family, friends, people in relative to me and people I have met through my travels and beyond. Little did I know, that the circle would get bigger. I met some incredible, beautiful, lovely people from this social media website that I began to meet some of them in person a few years later, which made the world a smaller place. I have yet to meet a few people who I so badly want to meet that I met from other friends on Facebook by merely commenting on a picture or status message and we automatically grew fond of each other, so we added each other and our friendships have blossomed since then.We have become like a family and its an amazing feeling to know that you can take time away from life’s busy schedule and converse and keep updated with your Facebook Family online.

Facebook unites many people around the world. Its incredible on how things fall into place, and see how many people are interested in the same things you are by just joining groups, pages and fan pages of a famous personality, idol, or other miscellaneous things.

Facebook definitely makes the world smaller and in seconds a lot of photos, videos, links, news, sending wishes for birthdays, baby, wedding, engagement, graduation, university announcements, invitations to events and parties, status messages, comments, messages, likes, groups, pages, businesses, food, restaurants, menus, recipes, radio stations, entertainment, movies and other things gets transmitted throughout the world. Sometimes all you need is Facebook to get all your news and information with the help of Links of course. I love Facebook because it’s a website that I am so grateful for and for Mark Zuckerberg who created this so that our communication becomes easier with the world and encountering many people on all walks of life.

Thank you Facebook for Connecting me to the world and to people I would never have met if it wasn’t for you. I am so blessed to have you all on my list and I love you all very much! Mind you, I am very careful with my selections on who I choose to add-on my friends list. I have been around on the Internet since 1997 and I am very well-educated when it comes to social media moguls and everything else.

If anybody has anything bad to say about Facebook, it’s because of the way you use it, Some use it carelessly, some use it to do bad things, some use it to do stupid things. As long as you use Facebook wisely and know what you are doing, and what you are sharing, posting and who you have on your Facebook account, that is good, but do not post every single aspect of your life as it can be misinterpreted. So the bottom line is, if you do not want your personal business on a social media site, do not post it at all because somebody can see it within the second you post it. Some things have to remain private and don’t use Facebook to bully others, hurt or offend other people, Photoshopping in a bad way and making insensitive posts. Post wisely, because each thing you post does not go away, even after deleted. Especially on a Social Media website, that can be accessed by billions of people around the world. So be careful, exercise caution and use it to inspire, to be kind, to do great things with it like communicating, and enjoying it.

Do you use Facebook in a great way? Do you have an account? If so, what are your thoughts about the social media website? What do you like or not like about it? I would love to hear your opinions on it. How can you spread the awareness to use Facebook in a good manner and not use it in the wrong way?

Most about Facebook is good, incredible, and awesome and I believe that Facebook has changed the interface of communications forever. I wish FB Continued success throughout the years. Heres to strengthening communication of people from a distance, and cheers to everlasting friendships through Facebook across the many miles around the world. Happy Birthday Facebook! Heres to another 10 years and beyond!

What A Lovely Summer I am Having — Uniting With Facebook Friends Months

Lately life has been so incredible. This summer and last summer, I united with many of my facebook friends whom I met and we finally met. In the past 3 weeks I have met with 3 other people who are so sweet and lovely.  It has been so emotional for me and meeting them face to face really was something beautiful. Last night I ended up crying with happy tears because for so long when you talk online and see each others pictures, and all of a sudden your together and hearing each others voices and seeing each others reactions and everything is something so surreal and beautiful. I will never forget this summer and last summer. Such a lovely thing. The 3 times that I met my lovely facebook friends within the last 3 weeks was not planned. It just happened. Sometimes when you plan things it doesn’t follow through or it can, but sometimes its so much nicer when its spontaneous, sudden and not planned. I love those a lot. I remember one time when I went to Montreal last year. A friend of mine visited me in Toronto and said, Talin lets go to Montreal for a week. So we drove together and I surprised my friends in Montreal that I am there for a week. So everyday, I saw my friends there and we hung out and some I met for the first time because we met through facebook. It was a lovely week. I cannot put to words how excited I have become and so emotional at the same time. I will never forget these feelings and I will never forget the special moments. It was short, but very sweet and whenever I am having a rough day, I will always remember these moments and smile.

The power of the internet is something else. I know they say its a crazy battlefield with strange people on the internet and there could be, but all you have to do is be cautious and careful and everything else will come along. I am very careful with whom I meet from online and I know who is real online or fake because being on the internet for so long, I sense things quickly and I am more aware of what is going on and whom I speak with. I don’t go on any other chat sites or anything. I am on Facebook and I join groups to my interest and most people add me on facebook after chatting and getting to know one another. God bless my beautiful friends I made from it. Never under-estimate the internet. It is how you utilize it and how you carry on with it. Social networking is fabulous. I love it so much. All the best to everyone and I hope one day people will be as lucky as I meeting their internet buddies.
