Facebook has been around for almost 14 years, and many of us grew up with it. Although social media has a changed drastically since the beginnings of Facebook, I think that Facebook has made a comeback.
Maybe it's the fun viral videos, posts from old high school friends or Tasty recipes, but Facebook has been one of my favorite social media platforms as of late and one of my favorite aspects has been "Groups.'' Facebook groups are a feature where you can connect with people that have the same interests as you, listen to the same podcasts as you or even have the same kind of dog as you.
Facebook has always been a place to connect with others, but the addition and popularization of groups has made it even easier to get advice, experience and create friendships with people all over the country, and in some groups, all over the world. I am currently in 5 Facebook groups, but I am always looking for more because they have so much to offer. For example, one of the groups I am in has offered me so much knowledge on what classes to take or how to find the perfect work-study job, and best places to go on a date in Chapel Hill. Other groups, I am in focus specifically on funny memes about UNC and the things happening around campus, and another group is dedicated to French bulldogs and tips on how to take care of them.
If there is something you are interested in or need some non-bias advice about, a Facebook group could be a great place to start. Whether you want to join the "Dog-Spotting Society" or Gals on the Go, Facebook groups have more to offer than you think, and there is a Facebook group out there for everyone.
