Facebook: Does it help or hurt?

Oh, the words and images I have seen on Facebook.  I can’t tell you how many times I have cried, laughed and almost passed out from what my eyes have seen on that thang!! (I  meant to spell it that way)

One night I was lying in bed thinking about FB. I thought of how I waste so many minutes on it and how I can’t take those minutes back. I could have used that valuable time playing with my kids or loving on my hubby! I have circled my life around it and  its a part of my everyday life. It has become an idol for me and I know probably for the whole world.

Don’t get me wrong FB is a wonderful tool to connect with people. I have met and kept in-touch with a lot of relatives and friends. I have shared this blog and other things. I  show off my two little cuties and write what is on my mind. (I’m sure no one really cares)

So my question, does it help or hurt?

Well, I think it does both.

I think sometimes it consumes us like a fire. It takes over our thoughts, our feelings and our spiritual lives. It makes us jealous, angry and sad. Don’t we have enough problems of our own? I get so sick of hearing complaining and such. Facebook should be a place where we can relate and share. Where we can keep in contact. Where we do not have to worry about whose talking about whom and why wasn’t  I invited to  that party? I wish people would be uplifting and encouraging, not Debbie downers. (I’m not saying I haven’t been a Debbie downer, but come on people life is not that bad.)

Facebook can be a great thing. I have seen encouragement and friendships reunited. I can talk to my friends in other states and see  the pictures of their children. I’m a stay at home mom, so it helps me to see whats going on in my town and community. I have used FB to share this blog and I have met other Ag wives because of it. I know it’s not a way to have a PERSONAL FRIENDSHIP, but its a friendship. It helps us stay connected, when sometimes its hard in our everyday lives.

SOoo, I want to see what y’all think about FB. Has it effected your life for the good or bad? What is your opinion??
