When I realised that most of teenagers use facebook mostly to communicate, I decided to make a short survey with just one question: "Why do you use facebook mostly?". Every of 20 respondents was able to choose just one answer. There are answers with results:
-Because I can communicate with friends - 14 respondents (70%)
-Because I can share photos - 0 respondents (0%)
-Because I belong to big internet community - 4 respondents (20%)
-Because all my friends do - 2 respondents (10)
As we can see, the main reason of facebook's popularity is simplicity of communicating with others. That is easier, because we don't have to know somebody's number or nick. We just have to know a person's name to start chatting with him. It becomes more popular, because sometimes we can share our opinion about something only on facebook. Moderators of web pages expect that we have an account on facebook.
For lots of facebooks members a lot of things are easier - communication, sharing opinion, browsing the net etc. and that is all for free. But you must remember that if you don't pay for something, you are not a customer. You are a commodity. There is a field where pages with thousands of fans are sold for a lot of money. That is a big and rewarding business consisting of trading personal data.

     Today I want to write something about my new column. It’s not about computer games, as last year. This year I will try to answer some interesting questions.

I will ask people in school and my other friends questions like “Why something is so popular?”. I will do surveys and investigate to find answers for questions like this.

     My first article will be about phenomenon of Facebook. I hope I will find a small part of truth :).

Why is facebook so popular?

A lot of people, including scientists, ask this question: „Why is facebook so popular among teenagers?”. There is not just one correct answer. In every answer there is a little of truth and a little of speculation. I will try to find the answer looking at this problem from few points of view. At the beginning, I asked some teenagers why they use facebook. There are few answers:

I use facebook as a communicator instead of gadu-gadu. It's better than gg, because you don't have to get somebody's number to chat with him.”

B, 15 years old

,,Facebook? Mostly to communicate with friends. I didn't like it, but I've found out that is great way to chat with people.”

M, 15 years old

,,To communicate. That's all”

W, 14 years old

,,To chat with friends and nothing more”

K, 15 years old

To nothing matter. I'm just using it. Sometimes something interests me, for example gossips. Eventually for short conversation. But mostly for... nothing. I think that facebook is to everything and nothing.

Ż, 17 years old

To contact with friends and upload photos”

O, 14 years old

As we can see, they use facebook to do similar things. Which of them is the most popular? And WHY is it popular? Wait for my next article!
