Alright Kevin!!! Good luck to you as well.

This is kind of confusing to me as there is no statement. Are you saying that Facebook is bad for the world?

By the way Kevin, grammar is counted for points, so make sure you capitalize what needs to be capitalized!!!

I look forward to your argument.

Argument
Facebook is Dangerous Addiction
Facebook is becoming one of the biggest addiction problem for the students around the world. Everyday students in Middle School, High School, College, and now even elementary school are now addicted to a so called socializing website. With out knowing a person wastes hours after hours on Facebook scouring for new notification and new messages. Facebook creates horrible situation in school and destroys ones life slow, but gradually. One student might forget to study for the finals because the student decided to post the new awesome, crazy video that the student found. More than ever Facebook is becoming something harmful to the society with the way they trap their users in their website.
Facebook has No Privacy
Facebook is a dangerous social network because of all the strangers that can see your private information. In 2010 a New Zealand hacker has infiltrated about 1.5 million Facebook accounts, this is Facebook can do for its users by letting them being hacked into and almost being sold into the Black Market. Privacy is approximately all gone in what use to be the famous Facebook.

Facebook Users are Mostly Students and Being Affected in a Harmful Way
Facebook users are mostly students even the pro of this argument is a student addicted to Facebook. Facebook is dangerous for the society because the students now spend more time on Facebook than doing their homework whick affects the life of the students. A study made by the Ohio State University states that the Facebook student users have lower GPA than regular students. If you look what is happening to our future generation you realize Facebook way more harmful than we use to believe. Facebook is dangerous with no doubt it is becoming more influence over the new generation of leaders that will lead us out of the crisis we have created. Facebook is now wasting students lives when they could be pursuing their goals.

I see that my opponent has forfeited round which shows that I proved my point and the opponent couldn't come up with any counter argument.
I will restate my major reasoning.
* Facebook is becoming a dangerous addiction that is destroying the lives of people all around the world.
* Facebook has no privacy what so ever.
* Students around the globe is being affected in a horrible way.
Vote for Con for effective reasoning.

I urge the audience to not vote for any one of them-- because Pro is currently sick at the hospital from a disastrous wound in his leg, and he has no means of communication via internet

The definition of this debate is whether that Facebook is beneficial for the society we live in or rather atrocious to the world we call home.
