“What is so good about Facebook?” My daughter asked a simple question.
I tried to simplify, “Facebook is one big photo album to share pictures, comments and opinions with all your friends and view theirs.”
“Is that why you like Facebook?”
“Oh yes. I love Facebook but for different reasons. Facebook made my life so pleasant.”
“It made your life pleasant. Really! How is that?” My reply surprised her.
“Instead of emails, most people use Facebook to broadcast interesting but unimportant links. That makes my mailbox clean and free of junk emails. ”
“Is that all? Being free of spam is your only reason”, she asked.
“Well. One more reason! Besides spam, Facebook also freed up a lot of my time.”
“How?” she asked with curiosity.
“Because Facebook keeps someone in this house entertained and busy all the time. Can you guess who that is?”
She rolled her eyes towards my wife, looked back at me and then chuckled but did not say a word. We both knew the answer. Engrossed in checking status updates of her Facebook friends, my wife did not see our eye to eye communication but noticed a pause in what she considered noise.
My wife asked, “Did he say something about Facebook and me?”
My daughter looked at me, smiled and replied, “Dad says your Facebook profile picture is awesome.”
I will let readers decide if this statement worked and I am sure all readers have their own opinion about Facebook.
