Title~ My Other Life in Facebook World

I chose to write about facebook because, like most people, facebook is a huge part of my life. It is the cyber world for the current generation, and it is rapidly gaining users from the older generations as we speak. I want to talk about how facebook has influenced the way we live our lives. How social events and reunions aren’t like what they use to be. Many people know exactly what their high school friends are doing at a certain time, place, and date. Is there a need for reunions anymore? After all, now you can post videos on facebook’s wall. Has our communication skills and social skills deteriated in the office/school/job since the founding of facebook?

What I already know:

1. Facebook is becoming an international resource for people to connect with friends from every part of the world

2. Facebook is most popular amongst college students

3. Addicting amongst young people

4. Conflicting with social and communication skills

5. Living a life centered around facebook, rather than living a life where facebook is based upon our lives

6. Instant access to upcoming events

Things I would like to find out about this topic:

–  The impacts facebook has on social and commuication skills

Why this is important for our current generation who about to go out into the workforce

– The negative effects from facebook

– How is the new facebook image too nosy- how this effects people’s lives

FW7:Hot Topic

481What pisses me off  are people who are EXTREMELY loud and in your face annoying.

The worse is when they are in your personal space. It is annoying because you just want to tell them to back off, but then you don’t want to

be rude. Reason being because this might be how their personality is.   It can be even mor worse when they

are trying to make you agree to their point of view in an obnoxious way.

I like outgoing people, but there is a fine line of outgoing and being really obnoxious.
