Facebook has gotten some bad press recently, especially in regards to the privacy issue. With all of the negativity it’s easy to forget that people are using Facebook in extraordinary ways.
I recently stumbled onto a really cool new site called Facebook Stories, a site dedicated to sharing the extraordinary, quirky and thought-provoking stories and ideas from Facebook’s community. The stories presented on the site are submitted by actual Facebook users and range from emotional to inspirational.
How Facebook Helped Me Become A Best-Selling Author is a story about how Facebook helped Marie Force grow a huge audience to promote her writing. How Support for Marriage Equality Went Viral on Facebook tells the story of how Facebook helped spread the word about marriage equality and human rights virally. And Taking The Local Food Movement Online Changed Our Community is about how a local group used Facebook to successfully promote a local food movement.
If Facebook’s got you down rest assured these uplifting Facebook stories and many more like them are sure to brighten up your day.
