Facebook came from a small idea to be a total success in few years. Most of us have Facebooks, and even kids whose age goes from to 3 to 5 years old have it. It has become the most used social site to meet people. However, some people use Facebook too much that it becomes an addiction. Facebook is a great place to interact with friends and people with common thoughts, but better be careful not to get addicted to it.
In my personal opinion, everybody knows what is Facebook. I started using Facebook when I was a senior at high school, 2009. I did not use it that much until I met interesting people. I started college, and I started making friends by Facebook. Now friends don’t ask for phone numbers, they ask for your facebook. If you know your friends and add them to Facebook, it is fine, but you have to be carefull when you add unknown people. Some people are on Facebook just to mess with it. Some of them have names, but we call them hackers because they can go into your account and post anything from false information to porn and more. I have never had a single incident about somebody hacking my account, but you should be careful on how you put information because your personal life can be affected.
I casually know people who have met in Facebook and got married. Thanks to God everything went good in these cases, but sometimes it is a tramp. There is good and evil and exists everywhere. When people want to cause pain, they will do anything to do their evil thoughts. I have heard about cases of women been killed, rapped or their families never heard of them again. I would never go out with someone who I don’t know personally, and if I go out, it has to be in a public place: safety first in all cases.
I was becoming addicted to Facebook until I saw how it was affecting my academic, work, and athlete life. I would be getting bad grades all the time because I would spend most of my time going on Facebook or thinking about it instead on concentrating in my homework. At work, I would try to go to a place where no one would see me to just connect to Facebook; I got caught two times, and I almost get fired because of it in my previous job. I would be on Facebook all day, and I would not do any type of exercise or something healthy.
Facebook definitely is the best site now days, but you have to consider your personal life. Don’t be on your all day trying to meet new people that probably you won’t ever personally meet. Be healthy and use it in a moderate way.
