You mean it might be a little self absorbed if I post pics of what I'm eating, or where I am, my kid's spelling assignment or my dog jumping in the air?We do NOT need to tell everyone on earth where we are every minute of the day and what we are doing and planning to do. I do like Facebook for staying in touch with family. I have a lot of family on the east coast and its a great way to stay in touch. If not for that, I am really not that interested in the daily postings of people that I am not that connected with. Anyone with more that 20 or 30 "friends" is fooling themselves.
What *I think* the point is, Facebook allows its members to get around CASL laws. it allows businesses to promote themselves to members in ways they cant through email. Its push vs pull marketing.No Facebook here. I find texting a simple, easy and painless way to keep in touch with family and friends. Even an actual phone call on occasion.
My daughter sent post cards on her cross Canada trip, it was like receiving a gift.
Something I find curious are municipal Facebook pages. What really is the point? If you are not on Facebook, how do you access municipal info posted there? A properly maintained and updated website is way more beneficial and inclusive. That goes for many businesses too.
