Well, if you are talking about how it SHOULD be banned, you can elaborate on some of the following:
-It wastes a lot of time
-Why do you need to be on a social network with friends you can see every day?
-It is better, and healthier, to communicate with other individuals in real life, not over the computer
-People put up pictures of themselves drinking and doing other inappropriate things, and this can be a turn-off for colleges and certain jobs
If you are talking about how it SHOULD NOT be banned, you can elaborate on some of the following:
-It is a good way to keep connected with people you do not normally get to see, such as family, distant friends, etc.
-It is a good way to reconnect with people who you have lost connection with, such as old school friends, etc.
-It is a good way of sharing your experiences with your friends
-It allows you to share interests, plan events, invite people to and inform people of events, etc.
When debating, you should look at both sides of the situation, and whichever you choose to defend, look at what your opponents might say. How could you respond? How could you fight back? Good luck with your debate!
technocally no, i mean if you put where ur living maybe, but i mean its a place to hang out.
but since you said your on yes...
it can be VERY VERY!! bad. like you can embaress someone and some stories say that people kill themselves for stuff like that. and then theres where you can be stalked. like someone who wants to find you, and you put where you live... tht bad... so yeah... :P
Should Facebook be banned?
No. After graduation it will probably be the only way to keep in contact with my lower classman friends. (Seeing as how some of them have moved already, it is my only way.)
The stuff that happens on facebook should be stopped before it happens.
I don't see it as necessarily a bad thing, a few people ruin it for everybody.
If you kill facebook something else will come. eventually that would pull the world into anarchy. That might be a little far.
Porn is "banned" but people still find it. It's a fight you will never win. GIVE UP!(always wanted to say that)
FACEBOOK should be Banned because every game that is on it will ask for money, wich is the same as Scamming, the whole site is just a scamming site with a social network cover, besides that, everyone that sees your profile, sees your friends , wich causes privacy infridgement, also having pictures on there is can be abused by others, like hackers stealing you or your friends picture and pretending to be the person on the picture. Also Advertizing companies pay facebook for your personal data so for example you'll see ads on the stuff you clicked Like on, wich I think also is a serious privacy violation.
I dont get why people play games on facebook, wich scam them right in front of their face, they might as well get a gaming console and get some quality for the money they are paying instead of zynga crap
facebook is evil. I hate it. I'm not on there. Facebook to me is NOTHING like fanpop. Fanpop is for people to post things about thier fave shows/movies/etc. Facebook is like an online friggin' diary for it's users! It's like putting your whole life story online for everyone to see! And the privacy settings can be broken by hackers worth their salt....plus they give your personal info to millions of companies.etc. I hope it becomes illegal one day and is taken off the net.
It seems like most of the answers here detail reasons why we should ban it to protect people from themselves. What Facebook is doing isn't illegal, and what it can do is spelled out by the website before joining. Everyone gets a choice, and they're allowed to leave at any point they wish. There are certainly problems with it, but the majority of those are a part of every social networking site. I don't see any of them as a reason to ban it. I can't think of a decent reason to ban it when everyone enters it voluntarily and can leave whenever they wish.
Beyond that, I think we should be careful about setting precedent with regards to banning things on the Internet. As far as malicious websites go, there's far worse than Facebook out there, but we keep the Internet regulation free anyway. Why? Because the Internet should be an open source for information of all sorts. No government should get to decide what is and is not good information, and they certainly shouldn't get to decide how we spend our free time online. If Facebook were banned, practically anything else could be as well.
