Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Why all Generations like to hang out on Facebook?

Who would ever think that a website named "Facebook" would be adopted by so many Individuals the world over, of all different generations, to meet up and communicate with each other. You can not only catch up with long lost family, but you can socialize with the world, joining groups and finding new friends. There are no age barriers for Facebook. It attracts anyone from 10 years of age up to 80 or more. Yes, we have to face the fact that people under 18 years of age are members of this website.


Why does the older generation like Facebook?

When Facebook first came out the older generation were saying how stupid it was, being so public, having your name on the internet. Now they have all joined in on the fun.

For one thing, your friends and family are posting photos and updates of their everyday lives. This is very handy when you live across the other side of the world. You can practically spy on your friends and family, looking at photos and reading all their chatting activities. This is a great way to keep up with the family gossip.

Why does the younger generation like Facebook?

Even though you must be 18 years of age to sign up for a Facebook account, the younger generation has found its way into this website. Everyone of my daughter friends are members of Facebook and they are all ten years of age... Who can blame them though. The games that are associated with Facebook are attracting all generations. People my age are going on to Facebook to play Farmville, and to join groups with people of similar interests.

The younger generation plays cafe world, fish world, sorority life, mafia gangs, and more.. This is what they spend most of their time doing on Facebook, along with taking quizzes and surveys.

Disadvantages To Facebook For All Generations:

Unfortunately there are some disadvantages to Facebook, just like any other social networking website. Because Facebook has become so popular it has become a target for spammers, viruses, and sneaky tactics. Scammers have realized the value in peoples contact lists and will try anything to get them.

The other disadvantage is that people are not totally aware of what they are sharing. What can strangers see when they are viewing your profile?

Despite the disadvantages, individuals of all generations like to use the Internet to socialize, especially through Facebook. I was one of those sceptical people that have now joined in. Can you believe that I am a member of the same website as my children and their grandparents? For that reason, it is just good that there is a social networking website that has a focus on all generations.

I forgot my Birthday and can't log in Facebook


If you're stuck out of Facebook, and need to log in, you can reset your password by clicking on "Forgot your password?" located under your password input box. Once there, you can answer one of three questions to retrieve your password. So, if you have forgotten your birthday, there are other things that you're able to remember instead, like what your email is, or a name of another friend.

I am 12, soon to be 13 in August. As you might know it is a struggle having to wait for Facebook because it is so advanced. Is it okay to have your parents sign you up using their birthday and information, but have my own name? I would understand it being wrong if I wrote in all of my parents information without them there. But since they would be, I do not see the problem with that.


mcdevito75 here, NOT A GOOD IDEA AT ALL, WITH YOUR PARENTS INFO ON ANY WEBSITE SPECIALLY WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION YOU COULD INVITE IDENTITY THEFT. ------ BEST BET,----- CHECK OUT THE FUN WEBSITES SPECIALLY FOR YOUR AGE GROUP. N-E-V-E-R GIVE ANY INFO SUCH AS TELEPHONE #, ADDRESS, MOM OR DAD"s NAME OVER THE INTERNET. N-E-V-E-R AGREE TO MEET AYONE OVER THE INTERNET WITHOUT BOTH MOM AND DAD KNOWING ABOUT IT. --- BELIEVE IT OR NOT-------- THERE ARE TROUBLES YOU CAN NOT GET OUT OF, THAT CAN LAST YEARS. THIS IS WHY FACEBOOK AND OTHER SITES ARE SO ADVANCED --- BE SMART AND WISE------- SMART IS KNOWING HOW TO USE THE COMPUTER-------WISE IS KNOWING W_H_E_N TO USE THE COMPUTER.

trying to erase searches on facebook


Hey,

This is not something you can delete. Facebook implemented this feature to make it easier for you to find people you may know or recognize. That's why you're seeing people and names of individuals you do not not or remember searching.

Hope I helped!
