How many times do you check facebook per day? Some of us are on facebook very often and right now might have a tab on your browser open at this very moment to facebook. With over 206 million people in the US using the internet there are 71.2% using facebook. Facebook can be a great place to share, talk to friends and family and keep up with what is going on. My 72 year old mother in-law jumped on twitter earlier this year. The world is becoming so much closer these days.
