Facebook started as a way to help us maintain our relationships. But after a decade, many of us can describe our own relationship with Facebook in the same way: “It’s complicated.”
You might be a casual user or someone that checks it multiple times a day. Or you may have tried it out and decided to break up with it. Or you might be the stubborn abstainer who has never signed up, despite mounting pressure from family and friends.
Whatever the case, chances are Facebook has touched your life in some way, perhaps even maintaining a blow-by-blow account of the events of your life since you joined. After all, as company stats point out, Canadians are the most active users of the social network in the world.
