Facebook recently those users was an individual, legitimate, and human….but it’s an impressive achievement nonetheless.it had smashed through the 1 billion users barrier. That’s 1 billion people around the world who are actively using Facebook each month. Of course it would be foolish to believe every single one of
There is just one question that needs to be asked – what is everybody actually doing when they’re logged into the biggest social networking site in the world? Thankfully we here at MakeUseOf have the power to find out the answer to that question, by asking our intelligent and loyal readership to answer it as eloquently as possible.
This Week’s Question…
What Do You Use Facebook For?
Although we won’t get 1 billion responses, those we do get can be examined in order to give us an overview of how people are using Facebook on a monthly, weekly, daily, or even hourly basis. I’m not asking you to think for yourself this week, to get creative, or to get the ol’ gray matter straining at the seams. This week’s question requires just one thing from you all….honesty.
Primarily we want to know what you actually do on Facebook. Do you communicate with friends and family? Do you keep in touch with online buddies? Do you upload photos for all your contacts to see? Do you share interesting articles (such as those MakeUseOf is packed full of) with your peers? Do you play games or use the apps? Do you maintain a page for your business? Do you maintain a group related to a particular interest?
Beyond that feel free to tell us about your personal experiences with Facebook. Do you consider it a joy to use or is it purely the best option available? Do you feel the Facebook experience has improved or worsened over the last few years? And why do you feel that way? What could Facebook do to improve its service, if anything? How do you see the future of Facebook panning out?
All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week where we will detail what You Told Us. One reader will even win Comment Of The Week, which will be included in the follow-up post! What more motivation than that do you need to respond?
We Ask You is a weekly column dedicated to finding out the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. The questions asked are usually open-ended and likely to start a conversation.
