Facebook is simply just a social network. It is a place where people could go on and chat with each other and post what is on their mind. There is no bad about chatting with your friend and posting what you have on your mind.

A social net work where people spend hours that they could spend doing homework, hanging out, doing sports. Facebook isn't a good replacement for those activities.

A research on 1200 teens and young adult had been done on how going on Facebook effect their life. It shows that people are actually improving their skills in empathy or ability to understand other people's feeling. David Carlson, PhD, an Oklahoma City psychologist says that he has no doubt that social messaging leads to real-life empathy. Also online social network is a good place for people the express their feelings and for shy people to actually express their self.

What about the half ton boy. He was half a ton (58 stone) because the was shy and didn't want to meet people face to face. Also, what about cyber-bullying??? And how many of those 1200 teens have weight issues or had medical problems because of their lazyness

Which half ton boy are you talking about? And for Cyber bullying are you trying to tell me that there are no bullying on the reality world? In cyber bullying you could just choose to ignore it without getting harmed but in reality world people could just pick on you or maybe hurt you mentally.
