Facebook is a website for people from all around the world to socialize. It was made in February 2004. It is a place where anyone can be a friend with anyone. One can send friend requests and messages to strangers; but the person has a choice of refusing the request or accepting it. The users can join networks such as school, workplace, where you live and more. This website has age limit to become a user; one has to be age of 13 or older. BUT! Most “young” users lie about their ages and join because Facebook don’t have precise process of joining the website.
The founder of Facebook was Mark Zuckerberg, and his friends, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. First the user limit started with Harvard students. Then, it was expanded to students in the Standford University, Boston area, and the Ivy League. Then later, it expanded to any students in high school and university. In the end, it expanded to anyone who is 13 or over.
Some countries such as China, Iran, Vietnam and Pakistan, have blocked Facebook. It is banned in a lot of working places because it takes a lot of time from employees.

This website is one of the most popular sites; first of all, because it has innumerable users. Once you join it, you cannot get out of it. Facebook is so addictive that it distracts one from concentrating. Most students take time going on facebook if they have mac or computer logged on in front of them. One can deactivate their account, but if you log in again, it activates your account right away. Facebook is a fun and harmful place at the same time; it is a place to socialize with friends, but on the other hand, it takes a lot of time from us.


Personal Taste May 31, 2010

One of my hobbies is to watch dramas. Once I start watching a drama, I have to watch it whenever it’s on TV to catch up the story. This time, the drama that caught my attention was called “Personal Preference”. It is a romantic comedy. First I started to have interest in this drama because one of the main characters was Lee Min Ho, one of my favorite celebrities.
This drama is about the love relationship between a perfect man, Lee Min Ho, and clumsy woman, Son Yeh Jin. It describes modern women’s love, friendship, and marriage. There are three types of love: “old” love, “happening” love and “coming soon” love.
The main character, Son Yeh Jin, is a furniture designer. She trusts everyone around her because of her “foolish” and gullible personality.  Anyone can try to deceive her if they try. She is one of the innocent characters. She is indolent and troublesome. She has no plan. She just waits for things to pass by themselves.  Lee Min Ho, Mr. Perfect, comes to live in her house as a tenet because she is in financial trouble.  At first, she mistakes him for being gay and falls into dilemma because she falls in love with him. Of course, he is not gay. I think most people are attracted to complicated and sweet “love” dramas because they are happy just by looking at the imaginative couple going out. It is what everyone (watchers) dream of and it satisfies the watchers. I think this drama ended as one of the memorable dramas because of the “happy ending” that everyone wanted.
Personally, I like watching dramas that has to do with love such as triangle love or love that has conflicts. This drama did waste my time every Wednesday and Thursday, but it was worth watching; it was entertaining and also, taught me how to act in love “complicated” situations.
