Overall I like Facebook. But, one must remember that whatever they read is probably made up. Also, there seems to be a lot of spam that gets routed. There are also a lot of adult sites, so I really don't believe that children should have a fb account.
It's a lie that the privacy rating for facebook is so high, facebook stores your personal information forever, in some cases they might know more about you than you do. Therefore facebook offers little to no privacy at all.
In this day and age, who could live w/o Facebook. I have met so many friends from all over the world. You have to be careful at times for some of the users on there but if you are careful and set your privacy settings right, you should not have a problem. I use it as my morning newspaper.
Это как и во многих других сайтах- что вы на нём ищете и чем питаетесь, если Бога- вы его найдёте, если Его волю она будет вам открыта, силу- получите.... если зло- оно от диавола, может прийти. Храни Вас Бог Творец и Спаситель наш Иисус Христос, ибо нет на земле другого Имени для человеков, которым возможно лишь спастись.
It is confirmed that Facebook is involved into censoring content, disrespecting free speech: http://www1.folha.uol.com.br/poder/2013/05/1286687-parodia-de-dilma-ameaca-suicidio-digital-apos-frase-apagada-pelo-facebook.shtml (in Portuguese).
In the social aspect of Facebook, there's nothing wrong. It's just a website where you can interact with your friends online. However, there are many problems. One of them is that they watch every single thing you do with a cookie, even when you disable your Facebook account. Also, apps (applications) are sometimes malicious, but Facebook lets them do what they're doing. It's also not good for children (even if it's not intended for children anyway). It doesn't have pornography, but it's close to that.
The final bad aspect is that malware seems to hijack FB accounts very easily, controling them in order to spread even more malware. And it's not exactly hard to get viruses on your account: you just need to click some link someone sent you and boom, if it's malicious, then you're done.
I am a Facebook user; I have seen profile pics of penises, and breasts. I have also viewed very disgusting content such as sexual exploitation in the video format. This site can be okay at times, but I definitely believe that some content along with its overall privacy policies, are too absurd to handle.
