10 reasons I love Facebook

  1. Free Scrabble, with the board set up like a real Scrabble board.
  2. I can keep up with brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins who live near and far.
  3. Plenty of links to funny videos and interesting news stories.
  4. It adds a whole new dimension to watching sports on TV. Gotta love the corresponding FB chatter.
  5. It expands the number of people who read my blog.
  6. Free stuff! Lots of companies offer freebies and deals just for "liking" their pages. 
  7. Near-instant answers to questions like "what should I fix for dinner" or "is tomorrow an out of uniform day at school?"
  8. Wide-reaching network of people more than willing to pray for things. All I have to do is ask.
  9. Speaking of asking, need a costume for a school play? A used stroller for a friend? A movie recommendation? Just ask on Facebook!
  10. It makes talking to myself more socially acceptable.
1am bonus reason -- Facebook makes insomnia less lonely.

How about you? Do you love Facebook? Why or why not?

LOL, I especially love the "talking tio yourself is more socially acceptable". I think that's a good one for me, too.

I love FB because the majority of my family & friends are out of town, so it makes it easy to keep in touch. Especially posting pictures.

It's a great escape during the day, too. Especially when I'm in need a an ADULT moment as I'm home w/ my little kids. It's great.

Scrabble...how to I find it to play on the actual board?

I agree with you 100%, especially watching a sporting even and celebrating or in the case of me and a bazillion other Purdue fans, lamenting a loss! It IS a great friend for those insomniatic nights~! ( I think I just made up a new word!)

I am particularly fond of #10. As I tend to do it anyway and would like for it to be as socially acceptable as possible!

*sidenote* Nice to meet you Wednesday!!!

I enjoy FB but I'm sure that you spend more time on it than me.
First off - I sleep just fine and insomnia is an awful thing to live with. Hope you have figured out other solutions than FB. Pictures updates on friends and family, funny clips, fan pages - great stuff.
Never played a game on it and never will. I think more people would blog and visit blogs if FB did NOT exist. FB is like a blog substitute. I do wonder if the overuse by corporations will kill it. Gee I hope you like long comments and BTW it would be great if you "liked" the page Stop Music On-hold.
