Okay, so Facebook is the big man on campus (though google+ is looking to change that).  However, why do we use it?  Why do people log on and tell us about their day, share favorite quotes or send a picture with their camera phone in the shot.  I use it to administer my clients fan pages (Paterson Education and T.J.Best). and connecting with other people who are doing cool things with Facebook like Paterson advocate Dave Gilmore and business developer extraordinaire Millennium Consulting Services of America.  However, not everyone uses it for this reason and it’s absolutely alright!   Here are some of the reasons people use Facebook.

1. To Socialize
2. Finding & being in touch with old friends & family
3. Just because everyone is talking about it
4. Bored
5. Promotion/Advertising Business/Organization
6. Getting visitors to blogs/sites
7. Get referrals/customers
8. For fun

There is definitely research on this, but I want to hear from you.

Why do you use Facebook? How is it going for you?

What other social media profile do you prefer to use?

Or why DONT you use Facebook?
