Over the past years many users have gravitated away from the ancient social media platform, Facebook. The social media mega site has lost users due to easier and more direct interactions from Twitter and Instagram two sites that basically cut the fat off of what Facebook was allowing, one that only updates status (twitter), and one that only uploads pictures or videos (Instagram).
The one thing these two sites don’t have that the Facebook mega site has is a larger space for news and more add-ons for more real time updates. Facebook is the most informative social media site because of the recent add-ons like the one that lets you know if your loved ones are safe in an area of natural disasters. With recent hurricanes hitting the coast of the United States and surrounding islands people with families in those areas are typically in the dark with how their loved ones are doing. Facebook has a check in app that lets the user record their safety in the area so the people not directly affected can know their family is safe and secure.
Facebook also streamed every political debate via their site so folks without access to television could still watch the debate and stay up to date with the current election. And if that wasn’t enough Facebook has just rolled out a new add-on that will allow you to see the candidates on the ballet for the election on Nov. 8. The add-on gives you all candidates locally and nationally and gives you inside information on what their campaigns stand for, giving users all the tolls they need to elect the right people to run the country.
Facebook is making strides on making the life of its users socially easier by putting everything you need to stay current is right in your pocket. Regardless of who you vote for check out the new Facebook add-on and check out the candidates that will represent your locals area as well as the country. Don’t be blind going into the polls only knowing if you are going to vote for Clinton or Trump, be educated before you get there.
