FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Facebook fans are often divided into it "love it" or "hate it" categories.

What some see as "oversharing," others see as a way to get valuable information.

Former Westport resident Roy Fuchs is among those who doesn't have much of an opinion either way.

"I don't love it or hate it," he said. "I find it interesting, useful, a great way to keep in touch with people, a great way to get your voice heard on topics of the day -- if that's your desire. But it can also a great time waster."

Zippy Kaufman of Stamford is on the other end of the spectrum. "I love Facebook. I've been on the east coast for a little over a year now (I moved from L.A.), and the biggest benefit I find is that Facebook allows me to see what my friends on the other side of the country are up to.

"I realize that Facebook (and all social media, really) can be an enormous time-suck, but it's also the only way I can find out what my L.A. friends are up to in one fell swoop." 

For many, it's the business visibility and networking that drive people to the site. 

Holly Jespersen of Darien said Facebook has enabled her to reconnect with many people from her past and allows her to know what's going on with many friends and acquaintances.

"I realize there's a false sense of intimacy there, but if you are a healthy person who has strong relationships that you carry out in-person and offline, I think Facebook is a wonderful enhancement to one’s life."
