Millions of users worldwide Facebook is the fastest growing social network site ever. What started as a platform to connect college students tuned into something huge.
For some people Facebook is a way of life , especially for teenagers. Back in the day what used to be important was who you were friends with now the quantity took over quality, the number of friends you have on Facebook is a sign for how popular you are and the good thing is you don’t even have to actually know them.
Photo albums are long gone….. the next time when you bring your girlfriend to your house to meet your mom they are not going to be looking at your photo albums, your mom is gonna log on Facebook to embarrass you by showing your naked picture when you were a little kid.
Posting your pictures, tagging your friends, and updating your profile became more of a chore than a fun activity.
Now people have the necessity to include their friends to every detail of their lives.
But what if you don’t want that, what if you want to have a more private life or don’t have the necessity to share every other detail about your life with others.
And God forbid what if you don’t even have a Facebook account.
If you have better things to do in your life than posting new statuses or uploading pictures on social networking sites like Facebook, then you can be considered a “psychopath”.
Facebook has become such an important aspect in people’s lives, that increasing number of employers, and even some psychologists, believe people who aren’t on social networking sites, could be insane.
German magazine Der Taggspiegel went so far as to point out that accused Dark Knight shooter James Holmes and Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik have common ground in their lack of Facebook profiles.
Also, Forbes.com reports that human resources departments across the country are becoming more wary of young job candidates who don’t use the site.
Bosses believe that a lack of Facebook could mean the applicant’s account could be so full of red flags that it had to be deleted.
Some psychologists believe that using Facebook has become a sign of having a healthy social network.
