Today's topic - The Impact of Facebook on Youth

Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with your family and friends that live far away. With instant messaging and even video chat, Facebook is the perfect place to stay connected. With the status updates, photos, and profile information, it can keep you up to date on the happenings of all of your close ones. Facebook also helps us to find friends who are having similar tastes or opinions. However, this is only one side of the coin, the other side involves very horrible results. The social networking site has become an addiction for many. According to a recent survey, the average time spent on social networks per day is 4 hours. Which was 1.72 hours in the year 2015. 


So today we want to know your opinion on this topic. What are the positive aspects of engaging in Facebook ? or What are the negative aspects ? Finally, do you support Facebook or not ?

You can use examples if needed. But please make sure that you are using socially acceptable language.
