That name brings up so many emotions.

To some it’s the epitome of a time waster.

To some it’s a place to play games (Words with Friends?  Candy Crush Saga? Don’t invite me to play those).

To others it’s a place where evil people lurk to try to “snatch” children from good places.

To others it’s a place  where everyone puts on their Sunday best and tries to make it sound like they are part of the perfect family and take the  perfect vacation and have the perfect family reunions.

To others it’s a place where we are constantly reminded that we don’t do a very good job of keeping up with the Joneses.

To others it’s like high school all over again.

To others it’s like that show on CNN where they used to get political talking heads to argue for an hour, on cue.   Political rants run rampant.

To some degree and for some people, all of those are true.    So, did Mark Zuckerberg make billions off something that has mostly negative connotations?   Something that is a drain on society and hard on our mental health?

No, I don’t believe so.  

I believe that a lot of good can come from Facebook.    I’m going to explore the ways that Facebook is changing the world, how it has changed my world and how you can use it to be a positive change for the world.

Tall Order?

What and see,

Tom

P.S. – Just to be ironic, I’m going to tweet about this blog post as well…….
