What can anyone tell me about Facebook? Has anyone here ever used it? Is it worth it? Fees? Pop ups? Spam? Thanks!

What can anyone tell me about Facebook?
I've used it for a couple years now. I've never encountered any pop-ups. There are no fees - it is 100% free. There is no spam associated with it either. It's a really good way to connect you with your friends/peers for purposes of keeping track of people as well as networking. I've gotten in touch with a lot of people through facebook that I'd lost touch with. Also, it shows you what people you %26amp; your friends have in common, which is interesting. I've found that some of my friends know some of my other friends %26amp; I had no idea! Since it's free, I say at least give it a shot. If you don't like it, you don't have to keep doing it.
Reply:facebook is a way for people to stay connected. if you move away from your friends and can't call all the time. facebook is for you. all you need is an internet connection and an account. its easy to sign up and its free. you can meet new people and stay connected with all of your friends in high school, college or even work.
Reply:It's free, has no popups (that I've encountered, but I use Firefox web browser), and I've received no spam from it.

It's good for what it was made for, which is keeping students in touch with eachother. Think of it like a yearbook on steroids. Beyond that, I wouldn't say it's necessarily better than any other similar site.
Reply:Sucks. Try

Its better can be a wonderful tool for keeping in touch with friends, especially if you are signing up through a school. Due to its growing popularity, the chance of finding friends on it is increasing. People from elementary school who I haven't seen for years have been finding me on Facebook.

As for fees, there are none. There are certain paid things that you can do, such as a e-flyer that you can send to your friends. The only advertising so far is a small banner on the left side of the screen. It's not very large, so it works out well. Facebook doesn't send spam, or at least not in my experience.

All in all, I think that it is a great thing to invest some time in.
