I can't even write a single word against the website http://www.facebook.com because I love to use this website and it always help me to get in touch with my family, friends as well as new faces. It's good, infact, un-matchable experience on internet. Keep it up FB we're here to support you. But sometime, hit masses on religious matter and show non-serious behavior to discourage people who try to arise these type of conflicts. I think if website wants to survive for longer time period, it should pay attention to decrease this type of activities. Thanks
The user of this Facebook is behind links to supposedly view the newly released "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" movie for free on crackmoviebuzz which is not only illegal but states that people only need to "create an account" for this (and no area to fill in details are provided either. It just lists movies with questionable third-party links that are illegal and don't work. Hence, misleading claims. No newly released film in theatres is legally free to watch on the Internet!
It's a good social network. They like to track everything. Some sources say they know everything you post regardless of your privacy settings. Not sure if that is confirmed though. Not really for young ones, There is a lot of questionable content on Facebook. 13 in order to sign up—but there are a lot things on Facebook that could offend a 13 year old. I don't like how they restrict fake accounts. My Gasdragon account was removed a few months ago. Why aren't we allowed to role-play on Facebook?! That doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.if you are okay with some moderate spying, than Facebook is okay. There is a lot of great content on it. Just be weary if you create an account for a character, you might end up losing it. Especially if the account isn't even for a human character (e.g my Gasdragon).
A large part of the revenue for Facebook comes from advertising and games. These sometimes require the sharing of personal information which can identify you. You should bear this in mind when using this site. To get the most from this site, it is vital that you use familiarise yourself with and use appropriate privacy controls
Au-delà de la polémique sur les conditions d'utilisation et l'utilisation des données personnelles, quelques points à prendre en compte, en particulier pour les enfants:
- On tombe parfois facilement sur des images choquantes (guerre, animaux et humains maltraités, pornographie, propos choquant véhiculant une idée politique, religieuse, ou autre).
- On trouve pas mal de SPAM (faux comptes ou vrais comptes piratés qui font l'éloge de soit-disant prêteurs d'argent et autres marabous).
Certes, ce n'est "pas la faute à Facebook", et l'option existe pour signaler une publication. Reste que c'est un réseau social où il faut, je pense, encadrer les enfants...
