As much as having a Facebook annoys me it is an online community. There is so much interaction through Facebook. You can post albums of photos that people can go through and comment on. You can also tag people in images and even posts. Tagging someone in a post seems to be the new way of using Facebook these days. The only notifications I get are being mentioned in a comment on a funny video. You can also create an even smaller community by making a group for an event or for university. There the members can see who is going to this event or university and they can make new friendships. Facebook has endless amounts of ways to involve yourself in this community.
We discussed in class today about Catfish. This is definitely one of the negative sides to Facebook. It is such a comfortable place that people get wrapped up in this online world. They are easily convinced that the people they are talking to are real. This is where many people can get hurt physically or mentally. I know I wasn’t allowed to have a Facebook until I realized that even though it’s a friendly online community that just as in every community there are dangers.
