Many parents, expecially those who have younger children, disallow their children to use facebook.com. Their reasoning, useually along the lines of: "there's nothing but pedophiles" or "Facebook is nothing but a gossip line". I, however, think differently. If Facebook is for quote on quote "pedophiles," then is the mall or the busstop or the local McDonald's any different? As for gossip, I am a highschooler and I know first hand the majority of gossip occures in the hallway or locker room or cafeteria.

Con

I accept. Facebook is more than a pedophile attraction and a gossip line, but it can still be a bad website.

Facebook does not give its users proper privacy. In fact, "Facebook data is easily available to every government institution in the Country through open requests" [1]. Look at this PDF document [2]. It details how one can obtain someone's data on Facebook. Do you really want to have your data accessed like that? Probably not.

Every website is vulnerable to hackers, with Facebook being prone to being hacked. News spread fast on Facebook, and an unknown link is enough for a hacker to hack your account. Hackers abuse Facebook's nature as a social website, and thus can hack your account. [3].

Conclusion

I have shown that Facebook is bad due to its lack of privacy and its proness to viruses.
