Conversation Questions about Facebook

I started using Facebook when back in 2007 and I was really excited about how easy it was to stay in touch with old friends.

Facebook has definitely changed over the years and sometimes it is hard to remember what Facebook was like more than 15 years ago.

I think we can have interesting conversations or discussions about Facebook regardless of the time that has passed since you joined the most popular social media platform.
