Do you use Facebook? Millions of people do. Facebook is a social network like Twitter, Myspace, Orkut, LinkedIn, and the many other social networks that exist. On any given day, there are bound to be millions of users on this site. Why? What are they doing?

One thing they might be doing is a status update. People are not physically there with their friends or the rest of the world, so they tell everybody what they are doing by posting a status update. One user might be fixing dinner, for example. He might want to post that there is a yummy mushroom and onion pizza baking in the oven right now, and it will be finished in about ten minutes. He might be planning an evening of pizza and movies, for example. In his post, he might tell people what movies he plans to watch. In a status update, users might also tell people about articles that they have just published. Other users can then read the articles, which will help the article writer to earn a living. Another user might have just finished reading a book and wants to recommend it to others. People are eager to find out what others are doing, and they want to tell people what they are doing. Status updates are not the only thing that users of this site are interested in, however.

They also play games on the social network. Many popular games, such as "FarmVille" and "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?", are available on Facebook. Users can select a game and play it with others who are online. Some people may use these games to help them start their day. They may also use them to wind down at the end of the day before going to bed.

Finally, people find friends on this website. These friends may be from school, work, or other parts of their lives. The network will notify users when their friends' birthdays are coming up. That way, users can send birthday greetings. They can chat with their friends and keep up with what they are doing.

Facebook is addictive. Users want to know what others are doing, and they want to tell people what they are doing. Many companies and programs, such as The John Tesh Radio Show, can also be accessed through this social network. By reaching these company sites, users can get valuable information, such as local stations where one can find the show. People will continue to access this socail network so that they can stay in touch with others and live a modern life.
