Facebook, cleverly, has a list of all upcoming birthdays. Without a diary, or Outlook - as a thought - how else would you be able to keep track with the vast birthdays you need to remember?
Facebook allows you to sign into a whole load of other websites and services, by using the Facebook Connect routine. Simply click the magic button and if you're already logged in, it'll port a few of your details across to the new service and log you in, without the need to fill out vast forms of details. You can do this with Twitter and your Google account too.
But without Facebook, you'll be plagued with dozens of forms and boxes to fill out each time you sign up to a new service, which subscribes to Facebook Connect. It'll bore you half to death, and you'll wish you kept your account after all!
Seeing as Facebook is a relatively private area to communicate with your friends, unlike Twitter which other users can see anything and everything you tweet, where else can you go to share meme's and politically incorrect jokes, without fear of being judged? Facebook has hundreds of groups with distasteful humour and low-brow jokes, and the sharing power is immense. So, though for many of the older generations, the jokes go well over their heads or are 'far too offensive', where else could yo go to share?
