Facebook has got elements of both good and bad. Based on preliminary research, we came up with a list. Take a look at this list of Facebook advantages and limitations and please comment to start a public discussion/debate:

6.1 Advantages
- free
- helps share ‘things'
- centralized friends network
- secure browsing
- helps connect with old friends
- many customizable privacy settings
- chat service
- thousands of apps

6.2 Limitations
- too centralized
- commercial
- no option to be anonymous
- too addictive and distractive, almost like heroin
- automatic photo and location tagging
- impose orders to reveal identity
- promote privacy to conceal fact that there really is no privacy
- safety against access by third parties not guaranteed
- claim no responsibility for unforced third-party access
- much too large organization by revenue figures alone
- capital growth has gone suspiciously fast
- restricted only to adding people you know, no connecting to random strangers
- want to know everything about you, who you've ever known
- you're profile is a mere tool to make FB sick amounts of money
- once you're dead, you're profile is removed to save hard drive space and keep it sustainable
- Follow your whereabout through your smartphone
- too much linked to your actual identity
- ‘like' button is old fashioned, simple and annoying
- affects functioning in real life and true personal growth and development as opposed to virtual
- affects student grades
- makes one stupid

Serious answers only please and no SPAM.
Thank you.

That wasn't a opening to a debate that was a statement of the obvious.
