Facebook? More like Fakebook..

“Facebook helps you to keep in touch and share content with people in your life.”

These lines head the Facebook homepage, but is Facebook a social connector or is it ruining our ability to converse and socialise without using a keyboard? Is it a tool for our employers and the government to spy on us? Is it just a massive waste of time and electric energy? Does it make us Fat?
Facebook is a free, global social networking site. You can create a web page about yourself, talk to friends, and add photos and videos.

Let me explain to you the average day in the life of a Facebooker:

Wake Up: Quick check of Facebook before school.

School: Talk about who added you as a friend on Facebook! Etc.

Come Home: Rush to get home and see if you have any new notifications!

Evening: Facebook. (Browsing profiles and having exciting chitchat).

I’m not going to lie to you and say I don’t have a Facebook account, I do. I will also say I do use it. I use it because I feel I have to, to get in contact with certain friends. Sometimes it seems it is literally the only way. Emails? No response. Text? No response. Facebook? Instant reply. It’s sad, but in the end I would definitely rather live without it.

One of the reasons so many people use Facebook is because it’s easier. It’s easier to talk to people online than to talk face to face. This is why we are becoming more and more lazy and rely on Facebook more and more as a means of communication.
Instead of going out or meeting up with friends, people will spend their days and evenings talking to each other online. This is definitely not a good form of socialising. It encourages the younger generation to spend time in front of screens rather than doing sporting activities. All of this adds up to the problem of over weight youths.

Facebook conversations are normally fake. FACT. People hide behind screens and using the fact that they aren’t talking face to face...
