Facebook is the largest, most crowded and busiest website on the planet. Google search engine may have indexed the largest database of links and other information from websites in the world, but Facebook have gathered the world’s largest database of people and their updates on its server. No matter how we like it or dislike it, we use to log in to Facebook and use it from time to time. That is why we may sometimes ask ourselves… why do people love Facebook? To give you some ideas on the answers with that question, which I know you can also relate, here are 7 reasons why people use to love Facebook.
1. Comfort and shoulder to cry on
Facebook has already become one of the most favorite places to go by people, especially women, to get comfort when they are feeling lonely, sad, hurt and disappointed. When you log in to your Facebook account, it will always ask you “what’s on your mind”. This question often understood as asking “how are you” which usually a question from someone who cares. Further, the social networking site is a place where your friends always hang out. Thus, they can immediately notice your updates and offer their words of comfort and help.
2. Almost a freedom of expression
Facebook teaches people to be more open and confident. The shy ones become expressive, and for most of them, they are liking it because expressing is such an act that gives relief. Facebook users can express their love, their sympathy, as well as their anger. You cannot dare to shout and express out on the streets, but you can do that great shout on Facebook. This is also the reason why Facebook makes people’s relationship deeper. However, it can also make conflicts more tensional. Whatever is that, people loves Facebook because it can give them freedom of expression, but still with restrictions to the social network’s own rules and regulations.
3. Entertainment all the way
Short updates, stories, fascinating photos, great videos and interesting people, all of these can make the fun and entertainment always available for Facebook users. That is why I also like Facebook personally. The social network can get rid of your boredom, exhaustion and stress if you know how to use the site properly. It’s always like a crowded place where people share anything that they think is interesting. But in order to keep your productivity, always remember to minimize your Facebook usage when necessary. Too much entertainment is bad, so don’t get addicted.
4. One stop shop
Perhaps one of the top reasons why people love Facebook is that we can already find almost everything on this site. Chat, photos, videos, stories, people, games, search engine, market place, marketing opportunities… they are all found inside Facebook. Furthermore, it’s the world’s no. 1 social networking site and almost everyone is already using it. You can even access Facebook on your mobile phone.
5. The feeling of being a celebrity
Fame is like fortune; people want some piece of it. Facebook is a place to dig an unlimited supply of attentions. With its 750 million users worldwide, this social networking site is the best place to become an instant celebrity online. No wonder people always think and gather their best thoughts, photos, stories and videos to share on Facebook to get noticed.
6. Free business promotion
This is why I use Facebook. It gives me an opportunity to promote my websites, blogs and services in front of many people for free. This free online marketing opportunity helps small business owners and entrepreneurs launch their social media marketing campaign without spending a lot of money which only big companies can afford.
7. Time and distance don’t matter
You can talk with your friends from anywhere in the world, and you can do that anytime as long as you have an Internet connection. Because of Facebook, the world becomes flat and even closer for all. It is in this social media era that we can now be able to meet even thousands of people and make them our friends whom we can always connect anytime and anywhere in the world. Time and distance is not a constraint anymore.
Facebook is a great and useful tool. That is why people can’t resist using it. However, just like any other tool, we should enjoy it moderately. Let us be a wise and responsible social media user. Remember that although we can use Facebook for free, we cannot use Facebook without spending our precious time.
