First reason to use Facebook is for organising events like parties and meet ups. Second reason is for messaging people, numbers change, Facebook accounts don't, plus texts can come off as creepy if you don't know the person that well, Facebook is more casual, great for meeting girls, not quite so much now that I'm getting a little older, but still good.
The other reason is for funny content, I used to browse 4 Chan and 9gag for funny sh*t but now it's all on Facebook, and generally only the best content filters through, loads of hilarious vines and YouTube videos and photos make it to Facebook and you can tag your friends in them.
But by far the best is 16 year old girls and Facebook fights, they add me all the time and some of the sh*t is comedy gold.
I screenshotted onE a couple weeks back that started out with:
"Indians love Me more than my boyfriend"
"That's becausE cows are sacred in their country"
And just yesterday "Mardi, the whales are heading south this time of year, you should probably get going" I'll upload a couple of them later perhaps.
As for statuses, I make them sometimes, usually a funny story of what happened to me during the day, or a Seinfeld like complaint about General nuances in life, people here don't give a f*ck but my friends in Facebook seem to enjoy them.
Also when I see funny sh*t like this, this poop is ridiculous, it even has a face. I saw it yesterday and uploaded it, many c found it funny, but you guys probably don'T care because you don't know me.
Twitter isn't as great btw, because there is no like system so I don't know if my contenT is good, great, or just rubbish.
Sorry for random capitals by the way,.my phone does it.
