Do you use facebook? I think 99% people all over the world use this social network. Facebook is a place where everybody meets and says something in the life. And it is a place for everyone to share something in their life. For instance, they can share their pictures. They can share the restaurant they come for dinner. They can also share about their son or daughter and something like that. In addition, it also makes a duty to connect everybody in the world nearly. I do not be negative the advantage of facebook since through this tool I found some friends who I lost the contact after graduating high school. Beside these benefits is damage to everybody if they use this tool all day. First, you will be unable to sleep if you use it so much. This makes you feel tired and do not be eager for working. All day you only think about it so you do not have the creation for your working and life. You always feel tired and bored so you do not continue to your life target. Second, you regularly compare yourself with everybody. Almost people come to facebook to show off themselves, they share everything about themselves such as their promotion in company, their happy pictures with family or friends and something like that. You feel sad when seeing these pics of your friends and you start to compare with them. And at that time you ask yourself why you are not same them. This makes your mind is not good. Third, using facebook a lot will be harmful your eyes which is dry. Therefore, it is important to limit to use this tool as soon as possible. And there is many the difference disadvantage of facebook if you spend a lot of time for it. But here I only express some examples for us to feel the danger of facebook if we do not know to use the right way.

So, I belong to the 1% of people, hmm. I don't use facebook or any other social network. I guess I am not so much sociable. :D What I don't like at all is when they want to share in which cafe or other place we are they write my name. Although they can't tag me, they write my name. I don't like people know what I do and where I am :/

Hi Eman and SNR,

I really like and appreciate your comment about this topic. I wrote this topic because I would like to share the harms of facebook in particular and social media in general. I want everybody can look at ourselves and know the way to take care of ourselves. Do not let us be addicted to social networking. Thanks for your reading and sharing your opinion my friends ^_^

Hi Jenny,

As I am not much into Facebook, I never compare myself with others only by looking at their post or pictures. It is the case with all social sites. I agree with all the points/demerits u have mentioned, things go exactly this way. But the worst situation is when you find urself entangled emotionally with someone on social sites, you do expect more from that person and it leaves u dejected and despaired when your expectations are not fulfilled. 

It drags us away from real life and goals. But it is inevitable to control the emotions or to keep at bay from social sites completely as they have become a part of our life.

I agree with comparison thing....
and I think this was the case with me for a longer period of time. It is not just with facebook infact all social sites so far. You need to practice not to compare your life with anyone but yh its harder in this era.

Hi Luci,

Everything also has two sides. I don't say facebook which don't be useful for our life but besides the benefits it also has the detrimental effects. And here I just express something for us to understand and how to use this media right way. In addition, we don't be abuse of this media. We use it like a tool for our life and don't let us be its tool. Thanks for your sharing.

Hello Rosemary, Andy and Roman.

Thanks for your reading and sharing something for my blog. I really appreciate your ideas my friends. I only want to share something I know about the damage of facebook for us to understand and manage ourselves when using it ^_^

People are using social media because it is interesting for them at that moment of their life. And it is almost unreal to deal with this addiction. And ofcourse you guys are right about the golden middle. But it is very hard to find the golden middle and more difficult to reach that golden middle after finding it.

Social media became part of our life whether we like it or not. I would say everything is up to us and our settings installed in our head :D rationally thinking people shouldn't get frustrated because of fb, should stand firmly on the ground with knowing nothing is as perfect as our fb try to show us ;) it is also about our character - why should we be jealous of others? It is better to wish them the best, nah? So the point is - smart and mature people shouldn't compare themself with others because our life is and will be the way we make it :)

Social media is indeed a double-edged blade and like your experience, I also found facebook, twitter or others don't have much benefits at all, they merely look like medias for chitchat, showoff, hoax and killing-time.

I prefer not to use them at this moment and dedicate my worthy time for something productive & contructive.

This is what the world all about we should  stand in the middle  to see things right not 2 close  nor 2 far  . Thanks for sharing  :)
