4 Ways to Improve Personal Branding Using Facebook Live.

“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes” — Andy Warhol, 1968.
We can only imagine what a genius like Warhol would have thought about the social media era, and the potential to share at the speed of light, your creative expression with an audience around the world. Virtually without cost, and from the comfort of your own home or the convenience of your smartphone.
Andy Warhol was right when he speculated that everyone would have the opportunity to be famous. If you have any doubt, peruse and check out one of the fastest growing incubators for digital celebrities and monetized self-made brands. Entrepreneurs like Michelle Phan who parlayed her talent for cosmetic design into co-founding the popular subscription brand , and millions more around the world.

While YouTube has maintained supremacy as the channel where personal branding creates Internet sensations and monetized income, there are an estimated 81 million videos published in the community. Is it even possible to be heard on YouTube with the volume of noise and proliferation of content? Enter the next wave of video branding; Facebook live stream.
1. Personal branding opportunity.
Consumers are constantly presented with different types of advertorial content throughout the day. Digital natives, or viewers that are constantly plugged-in and engaging with content, can tell the difference between rehearsed advertising, and a fun streaming video meant to connect with customers in a creative and personal way.
Facebook Live provides large brands, small businesses and independent entrepreneurs and consultants the opportunity to meet and greet with potential new customers, and further the personified connection between existing customers and your business. It is a powerful tool because it is easy to see and use for the viewer; they simply need to scroll past your post to be connected to the live video stream, and start engaging with comments, likes or other emoji’s that allow them to participate in real-time. It is as close to crashing a private party, as social media gets, and everyone enjoys it.

2. How to get started with Facebook Live.
There are a number of resources available online to teach people how to create professional looking videos. In truth, Facebook has eliminated much of the technical complication of live streaming with the interface and it is designed to be a “point and shoot” type of application.
Remember that Facebook live stream video is meant to be a little raw, and viewers love the live broadcast authenticity of a non-professional feed. It is more authentic to your audience to see a little bit of movement because they are not expecting a professional quality video. However, there are some tips that can help you create the kind of live stream video that reflects well on your brand.

3. Technical tips.
Use a good quality smartphone. Resolution will vary but performance is good with higher quality mobile devices.
Invest in a tri-pod. While many people are fond of using a selfie stick, it is almost impossible to eliminate shaking or narrate without interruption when you are trying to balance a five-foot long telescopic stick. Portable, lightweight are available that start at under $20.00.
Pick a well-lit area, but avoid streaming with the sunlight directly behind you, as it will fade the overall picture quality of your video.
4. Marketing tips.
Schedule your Facebook Live video (to the best of your ability) when you know your audience will be watching. Target your viewers when they are most likely to be browsing for content on their computer, or mobile device.
Write a great description for your video. Inform people of the essential facts including where you are, who you are with, what you are doing, and why it is interesting.
Ask questions to your viewers during the live video. This helps your audience participate in what is going on, and that is fun and exciting for them. You will also get more and post shares when people are liking and commenting on your feed.
Be yourself. Viewers are not tuning in to see something scripted, they are watching something similar to live action news. If it feels rehearsed to your audience, you won’t get the same results than being “in the moment” and authentic in your sharing.

Facebook Takes on LinkedIn with New Job Opening Features

Facebook Takes on LinkedIn with New Job Opening Features.
Facebook Inc. said on Monday it was testing a feature that would let page administrators create job postings and receive applications from candidates, a move that could pressure LinkedIn Corp.’s recruiting business.
“Based on behavior we’ve seen on Facebook, where many small businesses post about their job openings on their Page, we’re running a test for Page admins to create job postings and receive applications from candidates,” a company spokesman told Reuters.
LinkedIn makes most of its revenue from job hunters and recruiters who pay a monthly fee to post resumes and connect with people on what’s often known as the social network for business.

Technology news website TechCrunch first reported the news on Monday. 
With Facebook’s jobs features, companies could drive more traffic to their Facebook pages while allowing them to pay the social network to get their job openings in front of more candidates, TechCrunch said.
In October, Facebook launched Marketplace to allow people to buy and sell items locally as the social media network tries new ways to keep its users engaged.

acebook’s impact: how the social network changed the way we communicate The development of Facebook is amazing and you may wonder why it is so attractive, especially for young people. The old social media, such as telephone and telegram, can only help you maintain a very close relationship with several friends. The connection is easy to lose when the number changes or the family moves out of the town. Thus, it is very exciting when people are able to use Facebook to easily reconnect with a friend they’ve lost touch through names or places they lived.

Facebook emerged at a good time when digital technology gradually matured and people began to enjoy the convenience brought by Internet. On this platform, communication is not confined by time, distance or whether you have met this person or not. The new social media make communication more instant and give a new definition of communication. People realize that messages, comment on others’ pages and like friends’ status are easier way to establish a good relationship with many friends simultaneously.

Research suggests that social media can catalyze close, supportive, civically engaged relationships. You do not need to figure out body language, do not need to think about the eye contact, even do not need to worry about the tones when you try to chat with friends. Furthermore, the photos and status help start an easygoing conversation and you can stop it easily without embarrassment. “People seem to get bolder when communicating via technology”, said by Professor Dinuzzo at Christopher Newport University psychology department. Besides, Facebook also fuels users’ self-esteem in a certain extent.
You can post any information on your page and your friends will notice the update immediately. Users will be pleasant when their friends compliment the recent posted photos or status since this will make them feel being in the center of attention. It is also an easy way to track down friends and satisfy the curiosity in others’ life. It seems that Facebook turns the social circle into a small town; people can know their neighbors. For many young users, personal popularity is quantified by the number of friends and not being on Facebook means missing out on online social interaction.
More importantly, mobile technology allows users to check Facebook updates on their smartphones at anytime, which has become a popular way to spend waiting time and recreate during workdays. Another function of social media is to share public or personal information. The speed of sharing and interaction becomes amazingly fast through real-time website. And information sharing is more intensive and more interconnected than ever before. Its astonishing spreading speed and scope, openness and disguised identity drive freedom of speech as well as democracy in many regions.
At the beginning of 2011 in the Middle East, Facebook and Twitter became the primary tool to organize protests or spread awareness about revolt during the uprisings “Arab Spring”, began in Tunisia and spread to Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen quickly. The uprisings changed the political patterns in Middle East and shocked the world with the help of social media. However, imperfect censorship and limited technology make it impossible to ensure the truthfulness, accuracy and quality of information online.
When many users updating their pages, they see friends’ status and broadcasting without evening know it. This may raise rumor and result in chaos. Also in 2011, after Japan nuclear leakage due to earthquake, some person posted on Weibo (Chinese version of Twitter) that the nuclear power plants could contaminate sea salt production and the iodine in salt could help protect people from nuclear radiation. This message spread quickly and resulted in Chinese panic in salt supplier and price hike of salt.
The Department of Health of China had to dispel the rumor many times to appease people. The false information online can have unanticipated impacts on people and cause unnecessary troubles. When we are in the middle of the network transformation and surrounded by so-called “fast-food content” information, it is necessary we have ability to differentiate the rumors and reliable information and be responsible for the shared content to avoid passive influence. Except the public information or opinions, the security of personal information online should also be considered.
Divulgation of important information such as ID number, credit card number and address may lead to identity theft; the reveal of the pictures or locations may increase the probability to be stalked or harassed. The best way for the users is to rely on the proxies for the privacy risks, which may not work very well. Besides, nobody can tell the probability that one friend will republish some personal details of others on the Internet. After the user posts some personal information, there is no plausible way to assign probabilities to possible outcomes. Hence, users need prudence when they post online.

Social Network: an online community of people with a common interest who use a Web site or other technologies to communicate with each other and share information, resources(dictionary. com). There are almost 500 million users of social networks and spent over 700 billion minutes a month using them. Is this hindering our social skills? There are many ways that people interact with each other such as e-mail, texting, a social network but the least used interaction is face to face.
A negative impact that social networks have on our relationships is that social networks might strengthen our relationship with acquaintances and people we don’t see often; social networks weaken our strong relationships and also bring about physical social isolation. The term “social network” leads you to believe that you are in fact being social when these sites are used more for a phone book or search engine.
Instead of calling your friend and asking what they have planned for the night or weekend, you can just look at their posts to find out. This contact is very impersonal and allows the least amount of interaction between two parties Social Networks allow you to overestimate the level of intimacy you have with someone. Social networks allow you to think that a person is more committed to a relationship or friendship more than they actually are. You need to be sure you are putting in a balanced time of online and offline relationships.

According to a study by John Cacioppo (researcher at the University of Chicago), those who use social networks are more susceptible to the emotional contagion effects. An emotional contagion is the tendency to catch and feel emotions that are similar to and influenced by those of others. In his studies, it was found that loneliness alone was transmitted through social networks. Also, his study showed that 52% of those who have direct social network interactions with a lonely person they too will become lonely.
Those who have a “friend of a friend” connection with said person will be 25% more lonely. You’ve probably also seen that sometimes normal courtesy and politeness—aspects we would utilize in our face-to-face interactions are sometimes missing in the online space, that we would use in face to face interactions. Many of these social networks have a chat feature. Because of this many people don’t pick up on humor, sarcasm, and sympathy. Along with this, if you were in a face to face interaction you have the added facial expressions and body language.
Along with this chat feature people don’t have to talk directly so it is easy to hide behind the internet because you won’t have to directly address the problem. Because of social networking many people lose their ability to hold a conversation. Many people who use social networks lose the ability to spell correctly because they use shorthand such as U, tomoro, k and many others. Social Networks are very harmful, but if you balance out your online and offline relationships and don’t let social networks become your ‘hangout’, it shouldn’t be a problem.

Facebook Effect

Facebook Effect.
Facebook effects Social network makes a big change into our life. Facebook is a new place to communicate, and entertain. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, is an absolutely talented person. The creation of Facebook let us easier to communicate and share our opinion to other, and this is the reason makes Facebook becomes so popular. As the facebook is getting famous, people fall so deeply in Facebook which they spend too much time on it. Facebook has a big influence on us; we should reduce the amount of time that we wasted on it.
One reason, facebook can affect the relationship between friends and family. One function of facebook is chat or message; this function replaced face to face communication or phone. Most of the teenager use chat instead of other communication’s ways, this cause them forget how to converse when face to face. As the facebook becomes more convenient for us, we apply more time on it. It may disturb the time we shared with family or someone you love.
For example, facebook can increase jealousy in a relationship, because you can know everything by checking other person’s wall. It may makes more argues or breaks up. Another reason, facebook can indirectly change our health. With the new technology, the social network isn’t just on our computer, it also locate on our cell phone. We pay out lot of time to look at the small screen phone when we are on the bed, on transportation, and in the cafe. This behavior is so harmful that our eyes will hurt a lot.

Facebook is a public environment for us to commend or communicate with other. However, some people wrote negative commend on someone status or wall, it possibly will hurt that person feeling and this is a form of mental damage. The main reason why we should reduce the time of being online on Facebook is because it can affect our education, especially children. Most of the children don’t have a good self control. Therefore they will use tons of time for chatting with friends, analyzing their wall and playing game on facebook.
Since they spend most of the day on facebook, they will forget or procrastinate to do their homework assignment. This will drop down their grade in school. Slang is another big problem on education. While we are talking through message, we usually put slang into our sentence. This decreases our knowledge of English, and we will feel confusion while we are writing a regular essay. Facebook also contains unconstructive and harmful information, which can manipulate the children to do something wrong. Facebook predominately change our life.
It is a wonderful social site where we meet new friend and entertain ourselves. Although facebook is an excellent place for us to communicate, it has several bad effects on us. Facebook can destroy our relationship between family and friend. If you stay online for too long every day, you will sense that you health will probably get worst and it will affect our grade in school too. Even though facebook can reduce our stress, we should reduce the time that we used on facebook In order to balance our life.

Mark Zuckerberg is ‘Dictator’ of Facebook ‘Nation,’ Says the Pirate Bay Founder

Mark Zuckerberg is ‘Dictator’ of Facebook ‘Nation,’ Says the Pirate Bay Founder.
 boss Mark Zuckerberg is the “dictator” of “the biggest nation in the world”, the co-founder of file sharing site The Pirate Bay, told CNBC on Friday, as he denounced the centralization of power on the internet.
Speaking during an interview at The Next Web conference in Amsterdam, Peter Sunde said that there is “no democracy” online. 
“People in the tech industry have a lot of responsibilities but they never really discuss these things… Facebook is the biggest nation in the world and we have a dictator, if you look at it from a democracy standpoint, Mark Zuckerberg is a dictator. I did not elect him. He sets the rules,” Sunde told CNBC.

“And really you can’t opt out of Facebook. I’m not on Facebook but there are a lot of drawbacks in my offline world. No party invitations, no updates from my friends, people stop talking to you, because you’re not on Facebook. So it has real life implications.”
Facebook declined to comment when contacted by CNBC. The social network has 1.6 billion users on its platform.
Sunde is a left-winger best known for co-founding The Pirate Bay, the notorious file sharing site which landed him in jail in 2014 for which he served a five month sentence. His other co-founders were all found guilty of copyright infringements. 
To demonstrate his point, Sunde cited the example of when German Chancellor Angela Merkel was overheard at a United Nations meeting confronting Zuckerberg about anti-immigration posts on Facebook. 
“That’s kind of what it comes to. We send major leaders of Europe to ask him to stop interfering with our local culture. How did we end up in a situation like this?,” Sunde said. 
“If politicians were a little bit more hard-core and actually believe in this they would be able to fix it. If we say Facebook doesn’t agree with our rules in our country we are going to stop Facebook in our country. We censor a lot of things, why not censor Facebook?,” he added.
Sunde also decried the technology world’s lack of perspective. He denounced Facebook’s policy requiring people to use their real name, as in some countries, this can get people persecuted and makes it hard to organize political movements.
“Mark Zuckerberg is a rich white dude from a really privileged background,” Sunde said, explaining why he thinks the Facebook boss doesn’t understand cultural differences. 
“The reason for the real name policy is Mark Zuckerberg wants to make another dollar.”
Still, Facebook has been working to reassure its users about privacy. It released a new privacy policy last year that made it easier for people to decide which posts are public or private. And WhatsApp, which Facebook owns, recently introduced full encryption.
Zuckerberg has also shared his own thoughts on privacy. In Apple’s recent tussle with the FBI over unlocking an iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters, Zuckerberg said he is “sympathetic” to Apple. The iPhone maker refused to help authorities unlock the phone. 
Facebook is also working on ways to let users customize what they see in the app, giving them ultimately more control.

Facebook Now Lets You Officially Endorse a Presidential Candidate

Facebook Now Lets You Officially Endorse a Presidential Candidate.
You may already “like” a 2016 presidential candidate’s page on Facebook, but the social network is now letting you go a step further by outright endorsing them to your friends.
“Similar to how politicians, newspapers and organizations endorse candidates for elected office, this feature allows anyone on Facebook to do the same,” Facebook’s product manager for civic engagement Samidh Chakrabart told Business Insider in a statement on Tuesday. “People who want to voice their support can visit a candidate’s Page, click on the endorsements tab and explain their rationale for choosing that candidate.”
While Facebook users have long been able to show their support for a candidate by liking and sharing their official page, an endorsement encourages you to post a message to the News Feed explaining your support. A Facebook spokesperson said that you can choose to have your endorsement publicly visible from your profile or only to your friends. Candidates will be able to feature certain public endorsements on their page.

The spokesperson said that Facebook records endorsements only for showing friends who have endorsed a particular candidate.
This latest move is another example of what Facebook has recently described as “a broader effort designed to get more people engaged in the civic process.” When Facebook showed prompts in the News Feed reminding people to register to vote, .

Facebook Warns Growth Will Slow, Shares Dip

Facebook Warns Growth Will Slow, Shares Dip.

Facebook Inc. shares tumbled 7 percent in after-hours trading on Wednesday as the world’s largest online social media network warned that revenue growth would slow this quarter, offsetting strong earnings that handily beat Wall Street estimates.
The slip reflected doubts among investors that the company can continue its runaway success, even as it reported strong mobile ad numbers and steady growth in its enormous network, which ticked up to nearly 1.8 billion monthly users in the latest quarter.
Facebook reported a greater-than-expected 56 percent rise in quarterly revenue, to $7.01 billion, showing the company is claiming an ever-growing share of the online advertising pie.

Google’s parent Alphabet Inc. last week also announced strong revenue and profit growth, while traditional media companies like the New York Times Co. are struggling to stem ad revenue declines.
However, in a call with analysts, Facebook Chief Financial Officer David Wehner said ad growth would likely slow “meaningfully” due to limits on “ad load,” or the number of ads that Facebook can put in front of customers without alienating them.
He also said 2017 would be a year of aggressive investment with a substantial increase in expenses.
“They have reached the limit of the ad frequency on news feed, so they are going to have to find revenue growth from other areas like pricing, user engagement, user base growth,” said Josh Olson, an analyst at Edward Jones.
However, he said investment in the business should benefit Facebook in the longer term.
“We have been down this road before with Facebook, they have invested something like this in mobile and we have seen it pay off. So we are looking at it as an opportunity,” said Olson.
Facebook shares were down 7 percent in after-hours trading, at $118.21.
Mobile booming
Even as ad loads topped out, Wehner said Facebook had opportunities to grow revenue by boosting time spent on the site, further growing its user base and tapping still-rising advertiser demand.
While the warning about the fourth quarter sent some investors running, by most metrics the company beat analysts’ expectations on torrid mobile ad growth.
Mobile ads accounted for 84 percent of Facebook’s total advertising revenue of $6.82 billion in the third quarter that ended Sept. 30, compared with 78 percent a year earlier. The company said it surpassed one billion mobile-only monthly users last quarter.
The company is also reaping the benefits of a big push into video, both on Facebook itself and on the Instagram photo app. Founder and Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg told analysts that the company was pursuing a video-first strategy across its entire family of apps, touting rapid expansion in Facebook’s live video feature.
The company’s quarterly earnings announced on Wednesday marked the sixth straight time it posted revenue numbers that beat expectations.
Facebook reported quarterly revenue of $7.01 billion, beating analysts’ average estimate of $6.92 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.
Excluding items, the company earned $1.09 per share. On that basis, analysts had expected 97 cents per share.
Facebook said about 1.79 billion people were using the service monthly as of Sept. 30, up 16 percent, or 243 million, from a year earlier. By comparison, the 10-year-old Twitter Inc. last week reported it had 317 million monthly users in total.
New revenue streams
The strong numbers come as Facebook has struggled in recent months to combat allegations that it unfairly removes certain content on its service, and news in September that the company had for years overestimated how it calculates the average time users spend watching video.
But Facebook still has numerous avenues for developing new revenue streams. Its WhatsApp messaging app, with more than a billion users, currently generates little revenue, as do newer products such as the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
Facebook also aims to continue to grow its massive user base, especially in developing nations where the service currently has smaller penetration rates. Wehner pointed to the Asia-Pacific region as an area that continued to be promising for future user growth, echoing comments he made to Reuters in July.
Zuckerberg said that 40 million people now used Internet.org, the company’s free mobile internet service, to get online, up from 15 million last year.
The company said it hired 1,200 employees in the last quarter, boosting its total workforce to 15,700.

“The Social Network” Facebook Essay

“The Social Network” Facebook Essay.
The Winklevosses’ defeat! In “The Social Network”, directed by David Fincher, Jesse Eisenberg plays the role of the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg. This film depicts all the successes and conflicts that Zuckerberg had to go through in order to make Facebook the most successful social networking site in the world. After launching a website called “facemash” Zuckerberg became so popular that he was confronted by the Winklevoss twins. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss asked Zuckerberg to create a website for college students at Harvard but Zuckerberg eventually veered off into a different direction hence the creation the of Facebook.
The Winklevoss twins are now angered by the fact that Zuckerberg apparently “stole” their idea, and take him to court. After numerous meetings the Winklevosses’ were given a settlement of 65 million dollars that was not deserved. The Winklevosses’ should not have received a penny of Zuckerberg’s money simply because they did not physically create Facebook, Zuckerberg did not use any of their “codes” to make the site, and the Winklevoss twins did not fund during the creation of Facebook. In the beginning of “The Social Network”, Zuckerberg agrees to help the Winklevoss twins create their website.
After a few weeks Zuckerberg makes little contact with Cameron and Tyler. At this point Zuckerberg is doing all the work with his partner Edward Saverin. The twins never actually did any physical work that goes into creating a website. All they did was give orders and sit and wait for Mark Zuckerberg to finish their website so they could take all the credit. After a month or two Zuckerberg finally hinted that the website would not be possible to complete at the rate he was working. The Winklevoss twins had no physical involvement in making any website whatsoever.

They should not have won any type of settlement just because they asked someone to complete a task and that someone decided not to do it. They should have just fired him like it was any other job. Another reason why the Winklevoss twins should not have received any type of settlement is because Zuckerberg and his team did not use any of the twins “networking codes” when creating the Facebook. I agree that they had similar ideas but saying something and actually doing it are very different things. These codes are formatting platforms that make a website.
Zuckerberg did not use any codes that resemble Cameron’s and Tyler’s website they initially wanted to construct. It’s like Google versus Bing. They are very similar, but one is more popular. They both have the same general idea but are not the same. Anybody should be able to create a website similar to another and not be sued for copyright issues. Money was also a big issue in this lawsuit. The Winklevoss twins agreed to pay Zuckerberg for his services and for any supplies needed during the process. Zuckerberg did not accept anything because he was working with Edward Saverin whom was providing all of the funding.
Saverin set aside thousands and thousands of dollars to help start what is now Facebook. As for the twins, they did not officially give any funding to Zuckerberg or his partner. This lawsuit would have been different if Zuckerberg would have accepted money to create his own website and not what the Winklevosses’ wanted. That would definitely be a problem because they paid for a service and nothing was given in return. Since none of the Winklevosses’ money was used to create Facebook there should not be any problems.
In conclusion, the lawsuit between Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and Mark Zuckerberg should not have ended the way it did. No money should have been given to the twins especially not 65 million dollars. Zuckerberg probably did not want to pay them anything either but wanted to get them off his back since he had billions of dollars to be made in Facebook. I don’t think the Winklevoss twins deserved one cent just because they had a general idea. Any one individual can have an idea but if no work is went into it than there is no point in crying about it.
Zuckerberg was able to prove that none of the codes were used when making Facebook so no copyright lawsuits should have been filed. You cannot expect Zuckerberg to just give up and hand over a billion dollar company when the twins did not even give them money to help keep the website running. Think about it, why should Zuckerberg give Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss any rights to the company when they just sat there and did nothing. They did not put any effort except emailing Zuckerberg about his progress. The Winklevoss twins were in the wrong 100 percent and should not have gained anything for something they did not contribute to.

The effects of having a Facebook profile

The effects of having a Facebook profile.
Facebook. com was created in 2004 and has quickly become a college phenomenon. Lately, it has transformed from a small Harvard students-only project into an exclusive 600 million users strong social portal, offering a window into the people’s lives. Facebook, on its most basic level, redefines social networking and allows users to create and maintain virtual profiles that contain personal, academic and contact information. In many ways, Facebook has impacted on the social life and activity of people. The most common effects of having a Facebook profile are the lack of privacy, getting into addiction and neglecting the real, social life.
To begin with, one of the major effects of using Facebook is the lack of privacy. Facebook’s profiles are full of personal information like who people are, where do they work, what is their favorite music, movie or book. What religion and political beliefs are they. Moreover, there is also information where do people live and study. People share much of privacy, not only with their friends, but with strangers as well. Users upload their photos, let others to recognize them, consequently let others to know where do they party or who do they meet. Not by accident people say “Show me your Facebook profile and I will tell you, who you are”.
Another effect of having a Facebook profile is a problem of addiction to the social network. Indeed, people wake up on a Saturday morning with their cup of coffee, caressing their senses and relaxing their brains. Sitting at their desk and browsing on Facebook. They have 20 new notifications since the previous night, a few group invitations, a suggested page, 5 friend requests, few of which are unknown persons. What is more, they do it everyday, spend major time chatting, searching, poking people on Facebook. They stay indoors, plugged to the web, try to stay in touch with the news.

Whether they realize it or not, Facebook is a real part of their lives, a real partner that they see for good morning and kiss for good night. The last but not least effect of having a Facebook profile is neglecting the real, social life. First of all, it is quite easy to become one of many who have virtual relationships and before people realize it, they start to treat Facebook as their everyday social world. This, often results in a fear of real life meetings, as people who type a million words online, can find it difficult to express them-selves in real life.
Moreover, it is very common that people add other users of Facebook as their friends, barely knowing them and they pretend to have a lot of friends, when in fact, they know just few of them in real life. To sum up, Facebook is becoming more and more popular, virtual, gigantic social machine. But life is to live and there are thousand of things waiting for people in the real life, nevertheless, they still decide to live on a Facebook profile which strongly affects their lives. The major effects of having a Facebook profile are the lack of privacy, getting into addiction and neglecting the real, social life.
