Facebook: Share your favourite social memory

Facebook is encouraging its users to share their favourite social networking moments of the past 12 months by voting in a poll.

Popular choices for the best Facebook moment of 2011 include changing your relationship status, making updates to the new Timeline feature and even re-connecting with long-lost friends and family members.

As you look back on your Facebook use over the past 12 months, it might also be a good opportunity to consider how frequently you use the data plan on your mobile.

Take a quick look back at your bills over the past 12 months - you might be surprised at what you see.

If you identify any key trends - such as frequently exceeding your data plan in your efforts to connect with your friends via social media - it may be time to re-evaluate your mobile phone plan.

A quick call to a switching service can help you determine if there's a better mobile phone plan for you - you may find that switching mobile carriers to one offering a better data plan or free social media will help to keep you connected and leave you with more money in your pocket.
