What Are the Effects of Facebook on Your Life?

Facebook has really taken over some lives.  It is a social networking site that is used by all ages and is connecting people like never before!  What I want to know is what are the effects of Facebook on YOUR life!

I have had so much fun on Facebook because I have connected with people I thought I would never see again.  I know what is going on with my family in other states and countries because they post it their walls!  I can see up-to-date pictures of my nieces and nephews that live hundreds of miles away.  Not only that I get great coupons from my favorite companies.  I can enter sweepstakes (another hobby of mine).  Facebook has become very versatile. We have recently started a Get a Social Boost Fan page!  This is another way we can connect to people that are in need of our services!

Angie and I would love to find out how you use Facebook?  Please let us know how Facebook effects your day-to-day life?  Have the changes been negative or positive? Give us all the dirt!!
