Others use it to promote a business or event. Facebook has negative and positive aspects. Facebook is a great, as users can create and customize their own profiles with photos, videos, and other information about themselves.
Facebook is not all negative though. Facebook is a great way to connect with old friends and family that may live far away. It is also a way to hear the latest news, 30% of Americans get their news from Facebook. Yet, that’s not the reason one uses the site.

Facebook make the world smaller, and make people from different countries just like your neighbors. You can communicate with each other 's every day, and about everything. It’s no matter what you post. Even you just got a new pet, even you just found back your family member that missing a lot years, everything that you want your friends know just post them on to your Facebook page, then everybody will know. And Facebook can let you build up a new friendship with the unknown person
It can also group people together who share beliefs and interests and has been known to even reunite lost family members and friends through its enormous social reach (MSN News India, 2010). There is the famous story of the reunion between a father and his daughter after twenty years of separation, having discovered her Facebook profile. Similar stories have proliferated throughout news media in the recent years. With its widespread use, many social implications have arisen. Many users are concerned about the privacy of their personal information, how it is being used and the general issues of a system that requires users to opt-out of sharing their identity by default.
Many people use Facebook to connect with their friends and families. In order to register for a Facebook account, a person has to be willing to give out personal information. Facebook users are likely to create a profile which can include all the things they want to share with other people (Green 20). However, it could be dangerous if a person gives out his or her information because some people may steal it, causing problems and leaving mental scars. Facebook provides a place for people to share information and build connections with others by sending or accepting friend requests (Karl 214).
There have been instances where a company will ask a prospective employee if they can view their Facebook page before they hire them. (Privacy Settings Are Not Enough). Do you think they should be able to do that? Nobody should make the mistake of believing that social media background checks are merely a passing fad—they are the wave of the future and figure to become even more prominent in the years to come. "It is definitely the future," Hyman says.
Almost everyone today has a Twitter or a Facebook, mainly younger people, who do not think that what they post now could affect them many years later down the road. (Driscoll) Many Employers and college professors will look someone up on Google, Twitter, or Facebook. They do this to see if the Employee or Future College Student will fit in well with the work place. (Luckerson) Some people think this is unfair, your Facebook should not determine whether or not you get into college. People deserve privacy, if you walk into a college interview and they ask you to hand over your Facebook password does that seem fair?
