  • The network effect is Facebook’s biggest selling point, and the root of many of its problems.Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOWhat happened with Cambridge Analytica highlights this perfectly.Before many people join a network, it may not be so useful. But the more people join, the more useful it becomes. That’s the network effect. Facebook is a step beyond that — it’s the network effect on steroids.This is what makes facebook so great — it knows everything about you! — and what makes facebook so awful — IT KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. And while its network of 2.13 billion monthly users doesn’t pay any money to use the core service, Facebook makes plenty of money — millions daily — *buy providing advertisers access to that user data*. And everyone on the site agreed to this when they signed up.Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Do you shop online at all? If so Facebook has your data whether or not you have a profile.

    I've noticed that many countries in Latin America use Facebook as their #1 social media app in all age groups (that's why I don't delete mine because of "friends", "sales", local news, etc.) whereas the US doesn't use FB that much

    Before social media, when your bestfriend had big life events, they would call you and you were the first to know. Then social media came around and they are more likely to tell it on Facebook then you. They don't even bother calling you anymore. You are just expected to read it on Facebook. It doesn't make you feel that close to those people at all. Kind of makes you feel not important. I feel like Facebook has became a way for people to be lazy at building long term relationships with other peo...

    Not really, if they really were ur friends they would call u or u would be right by their side when anything happened,. Me and my friends are literally om every social media and we love it but it doesnt stop my best friend from making an exception and always calling me

    What drives me crazy is that so many business think it's ok to only have a facebook page. When you try to get their hours or something you're constantly spammed to log in, you can't message them, it's a pain.

    I no longer use mine, much. I wish I had never made one. It's too much drama. It's bad for you. Besides, people put religion and politics too much, which leads to problems, lol.
