Facebook – The Pros and Cons

Facebook is one of those social media sites which the vast majority of us engage with on a daily basis and it is where we go to keep in touch with our friends and family, news, jobs options, weather, entertainment and more. Facebook have really been smart since over the years they have changed what they provide us since our needs have changed meaning that they have always managed to stay relevant in our day to day lives. From first being a platform for university friends and colleagues to associate on to becoming one of the biggest global social media sites ever, Facebook has moved with the times. First of all most of us switched over from our favourite MSN messenger to use Facebook messenger, then many of us started using it to make photo albums and now today we can connect it to other social media sites that we have such as Instagram. With Facebook there is so much that you can do all in one place, but like with anything there are always pros and cons. Read on to find out about some of theirs.

Home Internet – The Evolution

We are obviously most definitely living in the age of the computer these days and that means that the vast majority of us own multiple devices that mean that we are surfing on the internet more than ever. Obviously it hasn’t always been this way though and it has only really been in the last 25 years or so that home internet thing has become commonplace. How many of you remember the old clunky Mackintosh at school or the communal family computer that you could only use when nobody was using the telephone?!

We find it fascinating how far we have come so we’ve decided to write a little piece about home internet has changed and evolved over the years and what is perhaps to come next.

Our Favourite Budget Phones

Let’s face it, not all of us are willing to drop over a month’s rent on the cost of a shiningly new smartphone that promises to do just about everything but take the bins out. Many of the newest generation of smartphones are a bit superfluous to our needs and are really getting above and beyond what we need in our everyday lives. For the vast majority of us, we only need the most very basic of smartphone functions in our lives such as the ability to make and take calls, send and receive texts and emails, open a web browser, do some online banking, take pictures and videos and stay up to date with our social media accounts. As for wireless headphones, wireless charging and all singing and all dancing phones, these can often be a liability rather than a luxury and we are still waiting on bigger leaps forward in the phone world. If you are in the market for a new phone but just want something that gets the job done, then read on to find out our favourites. Continue reading “Our Favourite Budget Phones”
