I think that Facebook is a great way to communicate with family and friends. It gives you the chance to learn some more about new friends or update yourself on your cousins hobbies. Its a great way to stay in touch with people around the world.

Con

Even though Facebook allows people to communicate with family and friends it can cause much more harm to person than it helps. On Facebook you can easily overshare and that can lead to situation like bullying. When you post something on any social media site it becomes accessible to hundreds of strangers all over the world. That risk to your personal well being is not worth it for the ability to communicate and share with your friends.

There are privacy settings on Facebook that are purposly put there for the users well being. Posts can be shared to only certain people and pictures too. You can enable the ability for others to become "friends" with you aswell. As for bullying, the user can "report" a certain post and consequences to the bully will be implied.There are many personal precotions aswell as bullying precautions implied in Facebook.
