    I think it already has. Case in point: we're talking about it right now...

    For the rest of the community let's expand this out:

    How has Facebook impacted you professionally? Personally? How do you see this evolving over time?

    And since this is the content forum, how has it changed what you publish, share and perhaps even think of as "content"?

    Personally, Facebook has helped me to reconnect with friends from my high school and college. Some of them may share the same interest or in the same industry as myself but all these were undiscovered back then.

    Professionally, since I'm in the realm of Internet marketing, I guess something that is interesting and worth nothing is that Facebook seems to have established itself ahead of Google in the heads of my clients (small business owners). Every new client that I managed to sign up will tell me something like, hey, what about Facebook?

    As far as content is concern, I've also started taking cues from the number of likes and comments to determine what I share on Facebook Pages as well as what I publish on my blog.

    Without a doubt, Facebook has definitely changed my life in a huge way.

    You are right in that however, change in your life doesn't have to be a bad thing or a frivolous thing. If you use Facebook regularly and, IMO, in the right way, it can make dramatic, positive changes in your life. Since I have begun using Facebook, I am more in tune with what goes on in the world of technology, politics, as well as various hobbies and interests. It allows me to reconnect and keep up with the activities of my friends all over the world in my choice of either a business or social level and introduces me to new contacts on a global scale as well.

    Facebook did change some lives, but there could be some who still live the way they have been living even before Facebook has been launched. Personally, Facebook changed mine, but in a very positive way. The same goes with all sites that include in social media. Outsourcing actually introduced me to it (when I first got a job in an outsourcing company). I learned how powerful it can be when it comes to all business aspects. I think it can do the same way to every person if it is used properly.

    Yes ! i do agree with you, Facebook has everything what a user want from a social networking sites. User friendly,easy to handle (Not like Google Plus: +1 button hard to find if you are a newbie), best for promoting businesses through Personal accounts,groups,pages.

    That was probably one instance, but let's not get political, okay? Let's stick to how it has changed things technologically for businesses and websites.

    I have so many friends on facebook. But unfortunately I have very little business from them. Facebook can divert traffic from page to website but it could not convert that traffic into business.

    Sounds like you're trying to treat your Facebook presence in the same way as a marketing campaign... Social offers many benefits but direct sales are not always the right path [not often]. What were you doing to build conversation and a following?

    Facebook really change the way the people live. For business that wants to be in Facebook because their target area was in it, they tend to do some sort of crowd activity (liking activity and a lot more promotional stuffs.) just to take the attention of Facebook users. For me it change me a lot, the way i communicate, the way I read news, etc. What's great with Facebook is that it will gave you everything (maybe not everything but the most thing you can have for them) that is useful for you to communicate with others and be aware of almost everything.

    There is no doubt that content on Facebook has changed the manner of communications and our normal life. Facebook helps people find friends they may have lost touch with. But it also helps people make new friends.

    Not only facebook, all the social networking websites contributed in changing the lives of all their users. Social sites have both pros and cons like you can talk to someone overseas without any cost but at the same time you become so busy that you don't have the time for your friends and family to sit and speak some words with them face to face.

    Exactly. In fact, one of the car companies did a TV commercial that exactly portrays this phenomenon.

    Social can obviously be a good thng but only if it is used properly. My personal facebbok page is full of people I know and it has reconnected me with family I dont see often and also a friend who I lost touch with at the age of 11 when my parents moved from London. The down side of facebook is that I seem to have friends who live their lives through it and post everything from how the weather is (I can see for myself through the window!) to the fact that they are going to have a bath! My biggest bug bear with FB is the ppost showing animal or child cruelty with a requestto 'repost in order to catch the person responsible'. I had one of these yesterday, and instead of reposting (which I never do) I chose to leave a comment pointing out that if people didnt share these things then there would be no demand for such displays of apparent bravado. In other words people whouldnt take the photo for the sole purpose of getting in FB. This comment actually had the desired effect as someone else commented that this was right and they wouldnt repost either. I have now decided that it is time to do some weeding in my Friends patch.

    I am struggling with what to post on my business page though, any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
