I have learned a lot from Facebook. By that, I mean I have learned a lot about people.
Besides interests, hobbies, “personal info”, I can keep up to date on major developments on the lives of my friends thanks to Facebook. Anything from breakups to hookups to new profile photos are stories just a click away on Facebook.
I learned that Mallory was engaged from Facebook. As I write this, I look on the News Feed and see my co-worker Christina changed her status from engaged to married- only hours after departing for her honeymoon.
The News Feed has become our Generation’s substitute of a newspaper announcement.
Facebook even goes as far as to display a photo of a newly announced couple when they decided to “make it Facebook official.”
This is all interesting to me, that and my co-worker Krissy needs to update her status: it’s already been twelve hours since I found out she got engaged and she’s yet to update Facebook.
