Ah Facebook. Just about everyone is on Facebook. I use Facebook for both work and for fun. I can connect with friends and other bloggers. Facebook unfortunately is also a big time sucker. That means I can go on real quick for something and before I know it, 3 hours has passed.
- Facebook Messenger
Facebook messenger is needed on your phone if you want to be able to chat with your friends. I also talk privately something with other bloggers so I need to have messenger installed.
The apps I use for fun are:
I use the calculator on my phone a lot to help budget the bills. I need to know how much money I have in my account at all times. It's an obsession really
