Facebook: Good or Bad?

Over 250 million people use Facebook on a daily basis. It can be proved that facebook is both a good and bad influence in society; all depending upon your personal feelings towards this social network. In a positive light, this website has allowed people to connect and communicate with each other. Since facebook is a popular site, it allows you the ability to find almost anyone. In addition, it allows you to share information about yourself and learn more about your friends. Personally, facebook has given me more of a social life and allowed me to meet new people. It provides an easy way to communicate with others, therefore creating friendships. On the other hand, does it allow too much personal information out to the public? If you set your privacy levels correctly, then there is not much to worry about ,but it is always important to be aware of the information you allow others to see. Also, it is best not to accept friend requests from unfamiliar people because it can cause possible dangers. Facebook is a big time consumer, as well. On a personal basis, I spend many hours on facebook a day. This imposes a distraction while trying to do work, such as schoolwork. Therefore, depending on your personal opinion, facebook can either be a burden and danger or a fun way to get out into the public while on your computer.
