Bye-Bye Facebook?!

There has been so much hype about new changes occurring on the social networking site, Facebook. Lately, it seems that I have been seeing new features each time I log in. But, according to CNN.com, more changes are about to be made. These changes are not going to be minuscule, either. Will these changes be extravagant enough for Facebook users to want to stay, or will they become frustrated and leave?

To me, the changes seem beneficial. The new and updated page will have a format called “Facebook Timeline”. This site will have a cover page, along with a timeline that is supposed to be similar to a scrapbook, which will be “documenting your entire life”. Apparently, this change will take some time (maybe a few hours) to figure out, but it seems well worth it.

Since there has been small tweaking to Facebook in the past several months, many people have gone around saying that it was time for their Facebook page to go bye-bye. Personally, I haven’t noticed anyone leaving yet. But, with all the changes that are coming, will people really decide to leave the Facebook community. And, if so, where will they go?

A Little Bit of a Technology Rant

We are now in the 21st century and have all types of new technologies. I’m not just talking about the typewriter, anymore. These days we have the Internet where we can engage in social media sites, explore informational web sites, read or watch the news, listen to music, and stream videos on YouTube. Not only do we have the typical computer anymore, but also iPads, touch screen computers, smart phones, and a lot of other new and exciting gadgets.

Along with the new technology, we also have been introduced to a whole new language. For example, “Google”, can be a noun because it is a thing; a search engine. As most of us know, it is also a verb. We now “Google” a statement, word, or anything else  interesting to us that we do not know or wish to learn more about

Like “Google” or “googling”, we have also been introduced to “blogs”, “blogging”, “bloggers”, and so on. What exactly is a blog you may ask? A blog or a blogger is a place were an individual or a group of individuals can write about his or her thoughts, interests, opinions, experiences, etc. (dictionary.com). Therefore, “blogging” is the actual writing part.

There is a new world of knowledge that can be explored via the Internet. Whether you know how to utilize it is the key. To be successful in the future, I’d recommend that everyone becomes computer literate. Can you keep up?!
