Advantages: Good to keep up with family and friends
Disadvantages: Cyber bulling
Facebook is a social network for people over the age of 13. Anyone above this age can use this network, add friends, update their status, like pages and write on others walls. To a none Facebooker, writing on walls probably sounds crazy, but rest assured its perfectly normal for a Facebooker.
A lot of people use it to keep up with old friends and talk to them about whats happening in their lives. Its good at keeping you connected with your friends and family, Making sure that they are OK, or maybe inviting them somewhere. It can help if you, or someone else, moves away and you can't see each other anymore, you can still talk to them and see what they are up to.
But its not just for that, you could also use it just to keep up with your friends at the moment. You can talk to them, discuss things or plan things. It makes it a lot easier to have a social life without having to pay, like you have to with texting. But because you only have to be 13 to be on there it's easy for teenagers to kepp up with friends without using up credit on their phone.
Family is another thing that Facebook helps you to keep up with, whether Its making plans for a family outing or just meeting up for a chat, Facebook can do it all. You will never not know what your friend and family are doing with them updating their status which will show up on your news feed. (were Facebook shows all the latest news)
But, there is always the issue of cyber bulling, where people can bully others over the power of Facebook. Although this is a problem, Most of the time they can easily stop it by blocking them or reporting them. Its not a problem that it extremely common but on social network sites you do get a lot of these thing is happening.
Overall, Facebook is a good way to keep up with your friend and family, but there is the problem of cyber bulling but as long as you know how to stop it then you will be absolutely fine.
Summary: A good network with some flaws.
