Facebook is currently a social network a social network out of many on the internet. But Facebook is no like all other social network such as Twitter, MySpace, Tumbir etc. And there’s a couple of things about it that I personally don’t like. The social savvy network known as face book was originally made for students that went to college, and to get in touch with friends that were made during their college years. But I then gradually became bigger and more open that it ever was to all ages of every ethnicity. Which I thought was not right from the beginning. So this is why I think Facebook should be eliminated from the internet.
Persuasive Essay “Does Facebook do more harm than good?” Many people use Facebook in their everyday lives. Facebook has great benefits such as: making new friends, meeting old friends, and staying in touch with family members who lives far away. Recently, Facebook has been a successful tool in starting small businesses and advertising. Facebook is especially popular for its birthday reminders and games. When Facebook was first created it was only for college students but as it grew so did its target crowd. Now, most people ranging from ages 10-65 have Facebook Account.

Also, I belive the only reason many of my friends and family remembered my birthday this year was because of Facebook’s famous birthday reminders.

On one hand, I am a witness that Facebook has fulfilled its promises of that awesome things it had to offer and more. On the other hand, I have witnessed the bad and sometimes disturbing things that take place on and through Facebook. Facebook users joined the popular group with a high of joining something fresh and new. MySpace, another social network, had become boring and monotonous and MySpace users had a thirst for something different. Facebook definitely brought different and they brought it with a bang. In the beginning things were moving smoothly with Facebook but as the years passed by me watched as things slowly went downhill. The cute nudge of “What’s on your mind?” drew us to tell what we thought that day or what we were doing. Now, users have option of “checking in” where Facebook uses the GPS tracking device on a users’ phone to post where they currently are. A user can also tag who they are with in posts as well as post pictures of themselves. These features have resulted in the kidnapping, rape, molestation and defiling of many young women and some young teen boys. Stalkers and pedophiles are able to track and prey on anyone they choose at the click of a button. Facebook did not intentionally given their users those options to draw these sorts of people but the
