Facebook is ok...I guess...If you want to give your information away and probably a stalker will stalk you for the rest of your life. Just kidding. It's just a good way of social bonding...Unless someone really is a stalker... :O

Yes, if you use is sparingly. If you are addicted and wasting all your time on it, then no. It's good if you use it... It helps you communicate with people in a different way and share things that you want people to know about. It is also a form of entertainment with Farmville, Fashion CIty... etc Just don't waste all your time on it ( like I used to)

I fully agree, it is a necessary social utility that helps us communicate more efficiently with our friends, family and coworkers, especially if you are far from your hometown. Facebook is a positive part of millions of people's lives and half of the users until they get addicted to it.

If it is used for what it is supposed to be used for then yes Facebook is a benefit. However people seem to believe that Facebook is merely a place to play graphically poor games which help no person and are solely time eaters.

I still use Facebook to its original use: being able to connect to fellow classmates and discuss anything from politics to the homework that is due the next day.

So I will say that Facebook is good for people if they use it to the initial intended purpose; though many use it for reasons which are either questionable or extreme wastes of time.

Facebook is a tool, so in essence, it can neither be good nor bad. However, I know more well adjusted users than I do hopeless addicts.

I saw some professors at university to ask us to register facebook and to create a group so students and professors can participate in sharing experiences, posting articles and working as a team. I feel a sense of community and connected to each other. facebook can be used for education not only for personal social network.

Facebook is very good because it allows anyone to connect with anyone. After the launch of the Facebook many business professionals started to use it for their business work. If you share anything which is related to your business in the business it will automatically spread to millions of people in the Facebook. So it is also a kind of business advertisement.

Facebook is not good. It's an interesting site to get to know people around the world, listen to different stories, such as the news, or your favorite tv shows, even your favorite celebrity. What I am saying is facebook is not the most reliable thing in the world but its something you can go to, to know something or even get a hold of someone. Facebook is not a terrible sight it's just their to let you have fun and find new friends. Strangers? you ask ? Well thats the thing you think someone is trying to get close to you thats when you block them. It might be a free sight but it has its boundries when you want it too.

Facebook is good because in Facebook you can chat with your friends that you have never seen her/him yet because you transfer a school or house..

The whole idea is very good but there are many dangerous applications around Facebook. There are even scams and trollers and also hackers. I would recommend it to someone who is dummie to internet.

What happened to talking to people in real life?

Facebook has its uses. I fucked a chick because she liked my profile pic (I never even added her hahaha slut). Viewing pictures of people and seeing what they're up to. That's about it. Literally. However the addiction caused HUGELY outweighs the benefits so all I can say is facebook is still for losers. I hit the 1000friend mark and deactivated my account because I never went on it unless I really had to.

I know plenty of people who actually lead well adjusted lives and use facebook. Not everyone is affected the same way by it.

I think Facebook is not good. From my point of view there are millions of very good reasons to stop using Facebook immediately. However many of the reasons stated below are not only valid for Facebook, but for other closed and centralized social networks as well, espcially Twitter.

Why do you need a facebook anyway? People say its a good way to keep in touch with friends. Well I can talk to my friend at school. I don't have a facebook because there is a lot of things that can happen like you can get addicted to it. Also you could talk to them on the phone. I bet most of the people on facebook are too busy "updating there status". I will get one maybe when I am older. In school a couple of weeks ago we did the Unplugged Challenge where you can't go on facebook, no texting, no playing video games online for 3 days. I did the assignment and that proved I am not addicted to any of those stuff I mentioned above.

all your arguments dont tell why facebook is not good .Lisen I'M on facebook myself but I do think facebook can be very dangourous for cyber bullying(bullying on internet).And people also add eny one and then speak to people they dont now meet them and that is very dangerrous becaus that person could be a pervert that is manupulating you to abuse you this already happened and could happen to you to so if you put an argument put why you are against at least. So it isn't nesearaly bad but it is very dangerous.and no I will not put myself a point just to win I will leave other people do it so that it is fair

Facebook is basically a way to centralize people's social interactions on the web. Many of its features can easily be provided by alternative methods(chat, e-mailing people, sharing photos on websites like photobucket or flickr), but it tries to unify them all into one website, making sure that every single detail that could be used to identify and track someone is easy to access and encouraged (tagging people in photos, posting events you're going to, sharing personal photos, sharing personal information on people's walls...). For so many years, the stance towards the internet has been caution and not sharing information you don't want to be out there for everyone to see, for a very good reason: personal information is very valuable, both for advertisers who can make money out of it by tracking you, and for identity thieves or creepers who basically live in the golden age of their respective "hobbies". Facebook encourages putting yourself out there, and sharing as much information as you can, just for that ridiculous notion of "social acceptance". It's basically the greatest way to profile as much people as possible, and there's absolutely nothing preventing the company or, say, the government, from accessing that info and using it for... or against you.

First off through, You have all these random people adding you and looking through your pictures... Even if your facebook is private they still can look through your pictures. And everyone is posting their numbers and where they are, that makes them easy targets for killers, stalkers, rapists,and creeps... So id think twice before you post something.... And also people talk crap about people on this site.... its stupid and ridiculous... but you have teens getting bullied all the time on social media.. So id think twice before letting your kids have a facebook twitter kik... etc.
