Facebook within society – posted 19th March
Looking into the world of facebook, it becomes clear how much of society is ruled by soical networking. Facebook has only been around for a couple of years, and already it is known to most human beings. Therefore it is no surprise that it can become the centre of people lives. For the younger ages it can be seen as a way to socialise with friends and family, for youths is can be seen as a ‘work distraction’ and for older ages you could say it reconnects people. Although Facebook can be shown as a positive in many ways, people do not realise the effects it can have on people and how it can come to rule ones life. With this in mind, social networking can be seen within a negative light, producing people interfering with other peoples lifes and provides unwanted visitors. Therefore it can be interesting to reflect how facebook can influence people, reveal news to the world and produce mishap.
