People from all walks of life, all ages are using Facebook .. nice list.
Nice list of ways. My mom joined to keep in contact with family who live in other states and even those family members that live in the same state but further away. It is an excellent way to share pictures and keep up to date what is going on in the lives of loved ones. H5 list. Well done.
I joined as recommended by writing sites to get the word out on my writing. But personally, I wouldn't be there if it wasn't for that. I love your eye-opening reasons, however. NEVER thought of that lol. H5
