What do Facebook users think of the site?

  • Sue Morris: Lovely to catch up with loved ones who don't live near.
  • Sue Pooley: It still doesn't beat a proper chat on the phone with regards to communication but you don't always have time to call say 20 friends in one week so seeing what they are up to via FB and commenting on posts, keeps contact going.
