Social networking sites bring privacy into the public doman.
Zaradi

Con

Arguments for Social Networking Sites:

1. Increased communications with distant relatives.
2. Increased communications with friends.
3. Entertainment (because who, at some point on Facebook or Myspace, hasn't tried Mafia or Farmville or something?)

Refutations to my opponent's sole argument:

"Social networking sites bring privacy into the public doman."

1. False. We bring privacy into the public domain. Social networking sites are inherently public, and posting private information is something only we can do. If you don't want your personal information out there, don't put it out there.
2. Even if social networking sites are responsible for privacy becoming public, my opponent never establishes why this is a bad thing, but a) merely asserts that it happens, and b) merely asserts that it's a bad thing and cause for banning. He has proved neither.

I love how Pro felt the need to add the extra ".!!! " at the end of the resolution.
