Do we really need Facebook


Facebook is very popular now. Everyone uses Facebook for their social status. My question is - how does it impact your daily life if Facebook is not there ? Is this something important for your life or growth ?

I do not and never have used Facebook. Social status? Get out more and breath fresh air!

More than for a social status, I consider it to keep connections with people living far away - Paolo 8 months ago

I think facebook has become a part of our lives for communication. That is a medium you need to keep you updated, and to update your loved ones. If facebook is not there, I am sure, we'll find some other similar platform. But, as a platform, we need something like that.

Agree. But, at the same time you have more private platform like Whatsapp and all, where you can decide whome to communicate. Facebook is like a streat, everyone is watching you. - Charu 9 months ago
Good points. Charu Gulati WhatsApp is completely a different use case I think. - Maya 9 months ago

I like to have facebook as my own journal where to keep my interests, news I like, pictures to remember.... and know about others. It is not mandatory for me, but usefull as personal journal more than social.

That is a nice outlook. Its like having that news magzine at home which you buy anyway. - Maya 8 months ago

This is good to have but not a must for me. Yes, earlier this was something very useful to communicate with friends, family etc, But now, it looks too crowded. People share things of no use.

Agree. Facebook is cluttered with the no required content. - Maya 9 months ago

Facebook is a nice to have. It is not mandatory or crucial to have it, but it can generate interesting opportunities.
Instagram is a similar case, Linkedin is more important to me.

Agree, LinkedIn talks sense. - Maya 8 months ago

If you see Generation Z, most of them are not regularly using Facebook anymore, as they prefer closed groups, like WhatsApp. Facebook will live one, but maybe lose a part of its attraction.

Quit FB looks a trend now. Personally speaking I disagree with most of the reasons provided. - Paolo 8 months ago

I view FB as another channel. Each social channel plays a different role in my life and all have some value or I wouldn't use it. Facebook is about celebration, family and friends. There is a lot of time wasters so im careful not to get lost in a FB worm hole.

I has evolved into something that was not consistent with people's expectations when most got on it. Migrations away from it will begin once other platforms built for specific communities are built with a core of shared content.
