See You In Facebook

by Rev. James Wong

A girl commented: “I will die without Facebook.” Those who are using the iPhone can respond to messages in the Facebook almost immediately. Because of its powerful sharing features of pictures, albums, video clips, games, news and etc, many people are addicted to it today. The modern phones are designed with browser that can access Facebook with a click. Its power and influence cannot be ignored today.

According to the New York Times site, Facebook, the company, founded in 2004 by a Harvard sophomore, Mark Zuckerberg, is the world's largest social network. By July 2010 it had 500 million users around the world. The company has grown at a meteoric pace, doubling in size since 2009 and pushing international competitors aside.

Today, Facebook gives people the power to share and makes the world more open and connected. Millions of people use Facebook everyday to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet.

When we wanted to show a movie in our G412 Saturday night fellowship a few weeks ago, I ask a few young people which mode of communication do they use, email or Facebook, they all said they use Facebook. The news spread fast in the Facebook and we had about 100 people turned up for the show. As a communication tool Facebook is unparallel among the youngster.

If you are using the Facebook, why not think of encouraging a friend, send a positive message of encouragement, share with a friend what has inspired you when you attend church, extend an invitation to your friends, share some uplifting thoughts that you learn from the Bible, show your concern, a word of wisdom, invite your friends to visit your album so that they can see what you are doing in church, post a meaningful quote about life, or simply write a sentence on the beauty of God’s love and the joy of living a life of purity. It is endless...
