According to Buzzle.com Facebook is a social networking website where each user joins the community and connects with their friends virtually. Connected members can share information, pictures, videos and also use the Facebook instant messenger facility. A member creates a profile for himself and uploads anything he/she wants, and all his connected friends can view this data at any time. It was form by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, he had no idea how big it would actually become. Along with a few of his friends at Harvard University, Zuckerberg created Facebook to fulfill the purpose of a college yearbook. Within a few months more and more people joined the community, and today Facebook has more than 750 million users all over the world. In January 2011, Facebook also became the second most visited website in the United States.
Facebook became successful because people can locate and keep in contact with their family and friends. People used Facebook to post pictures of themselves, family, friends and other events that happen in their life. Facebook is also use as an instant messenger where someone states their mood, activity or location. People also use Facebook to post their personal information. People also say that Facebook is great because; You can keep in touch with your friends, no matter how far apart you’ll are physically. You can make many new like-minded friends by joining various groups and communities.
Personally I think that Facebook has many issues. For one it has become “an” addiction for most people that has wasted many hours on Facebook. A person can get bombarded with unwanted friend requests from many unknown people. Another issue I have with Facebook is although you have the ability to find family and friends, you’ll also have to worry about them being able to snoop around and know what is happening in your life at all times. There is also the possiblity of your pictures being misused. Facebook can cause privacy issues as well, for instant someone could loose a job or a job opportunity because of what they have posted on Facebook.
Skype is a service that allows users to communicate with people by voice and video over the Internet. With Skype people can see and talk to each other through a computer and web cam. FOR FREE!!
Skype has over 663 million users that see and talk to there love ones all over the world. According to eHow website some cell phones are able to run a Skype application that will allow you to use Skype whenever you are in range of an accessible wireless internet connection. This allows you to bypass using your cellular minutes and if you happen to have premium Skype account, also allows you to use the unlimited international call and unlimited long-distance national call features of Skype. Video chat has been around for a long time, but Skype is the first company to bring it to the masses. It’s really great to be able to talk to your family across the country on video chat for free. It is good to have when someone is in the military station over seas and they just want to see their love one. I think the technologies’ new way of communicating with Skype is great. Thank to Skype my son was able to get over his broken heart in one month, when his girlfriend left for school.
However, According to Wikipedia some network administrators have banned Skype on corporate, government, home, and education networks, citing reasons such as inappropriate usage of resources, excessive bandwidth usage, and security concerns. Another disadvantage is the equipment can get expensive and if you want to chat and video more than one person Skype is no longer free.
