….is why I love Facebook.

Why do I love Facebook? I love it because I can control what I see and who I connect with. (Not counting the stupid ads that show up on my feed.) I can connect or disconnect with my friends, family, and acquaintances. I love being able to see what the people I care about are up to, what’s going on in their lives. I’m disabled so that matters to me. I am unable to just pick up and go visit the people I care about. Facebook allows me the joy of keeping in touch with those people.
I love that I can see photos of my kids and grandkids. I love seeing what they are up to these days. I don’t get to see them often, and I look forward to holiday photos, school photos, and just messin’ around photos.
I love that I can share things with my friends and family. It could be something funny or a photo of Dad or me….or one of the cats.
I love that I can send positive thoughts, a cyber hug, or some type of inspiration to a friend or family member when they might be feeling down.
I love that I can send a private message (pm) to someone just to check in and say or give them emotional support.
I love the multitudes of cat pages I follow because it makes me smile to see cat photos. I love cats, in case you didn’t already know this. 😉
I love seeing funny memes and videos. Who doesn’t like to laugh? 😀
I love the links that actually lead me to articles about things I’m interested in. I sometimes learn things I may or may not have ever known.
I love when others share their home improvement projects.
I love to see nature photos, especially now when Spring is….springing.
I love that Facebook allows small businesses to connect with people (customers) and that mattered to me when I had my own home business. It was a great outlet and I love seeing other home businesses bloom and expand.
So, you see….there are many reasons to love Facebook but if you don’t, that’s your prerogative. Most of us have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. I suppose I do, too. The positive outweighs the negative, most of the time. I won’t lie, though. Many times, I just have to step away for a day or so and de-stress. Sometimes I have to clean out my “Facebook closet” because it makes things much simpler. 😉
