Facebook and other forms of social media's original intent was to simply connect people and provide for them the means to communicate instantaneously no matter the distance. Naturally this could be said of the internet as a whole, but social media took it up a notch by giving people greater personalization on how they present themselves online. It was a concept that was eventually perfected by Facebook.
An unintended side-effect unfortunately, is that it also encourages people to become narcissists. No other invention has given people greater ability to show-off. It's a great invention for Filipinos because it perfectly fits their KSP-driven shallow personality archetype.
