Facebook’s greatest contribution is: It has helped us “connect.” Over. And over. And over. Again.
As the social media site celebrates its first decade Feb. 4, it’s a great time to say “Happy Birthday” and to look at how far it, and we, have journeyed.
The video shows my interview of social media expert Melissa Cowser shortly after her presentation to the Dallas Interactive Marketing & Internet SEO/SEM Meetup, in January at Connective Hub in Dallas.
And, who better to include in this post than some of my Facebook friends? They graciously responded when I messaged them about this blog post in response to the question: What has Facebook meant to you?
--Renee Burose Squires
"Facebook has certainly meant connecting with old friends, but for me the impact has been being able to find out important, and not so important events that help me be more compassionate [to] what others are going through each day. Maybe I need to actually reach out and help someone in need. Also, in a strange way, Facebook has enabled me to memorialize people who have passed on by posting to their page when I am thinking about them." Shelley
