Function Expressions looks more complicated then Function Declaration

Why would we want to use Function Expressions when it looks harder to read and the console.log needs to be at the end when Function Expressions looks more laid back.

What are the advantage to using Function Declaration other than " your preference " as stated in the video?

And an advantage of function declarations is hoisting, as explained in this lesson.
