I like using Facebook
I like using Facebook, because I can use it to talk to my family and my friends who can’t always come and see me. I know that they’re thinking about me, because they send me messages and pictures, telling me how they’ve been doing and what they’ve been up to – which I like.
Facebook lets me see what my family and my friends are doing; who they’re seeing and what they like to do and watch. It’s good to use, as I don’t need to message someone to know what they’re doing, because I can see what they’re doing and write comments (I don’t feel like I’m bothering them, as much, that way).
I feel like I’m more in touch with people, using Facebook, because I can see what everyone is doing, and where they were (because of the pictures and videos they put on) – so I feel like I’m more of a part of their lives.
