What's So Hot About...

Five Cool Things About Facebook

Facebook

People either love Facebook or hate Facebook. Whatevs, as the kids say. Close to 500 million people worldwide are registered users, and it’s the star of one of the biggest movies of 2010. So, here are 5 reasons why it’s pretty cool to be on Facebook – though we have to admit there’s something to be said for having an offline personality that’s at least as active as your online one.

Here are the reasons in random order:

Simplicity

From its sign up process, to the simple blue and white palette that's consistent across all pages, to the user-friendly navigation and tools, Facebook is all about making it easy for you to do your thing. Build it simple and they will come. Who knew?

Keeping Up With Everyone, Quickly

Facebook is a great way to keep up with friends and family wherever they are. Through status updates, wall postings, direct messages and more, the people close to your heart can be close to you—virtually.

Reconnecting

It’s better than a class reunion for getting back in touch with old friends. Because your catching up is done in a low-key virtual setting, Facebook is much less awkward than, say, a phone call out of the blue. To search for friends, all you have to do is type their names.

Sharing

That incredible column you just read on your favorite news site? Post it on your wall and share it with all your Facebook friends. Do the same with family pics, video clips, fav music, your latest work of art, tasty recipes and so on. Posting something as simple as a line or two about the latest big news in your life will certainly be appreciated. Even more fun is checking out what your friends have put up and leaving your own comments.

You’re In Control

It’s possible you may get friend requests from people you don’t know. Not interested in being their friend? You can deny the request without them knowing; it’ll just look like you never responded, not that you declined the request. Facebook’s privacy settings also let you control who can see your profile and personal information.
