The Facebook Revolution

Facebook is probably the main piece of new communication technology that I use today.  I joined the Facebook revolution just after I left high school I’m pretty sure.  I was never into the other social media Websites such as Myspace and Bebo even though pretty much everyone at school was because I just didn’t really see a point to it.  But when I left school I needed a way to keep in touch with everyone and Facebook had started to become more and more popular so I to, jumped on the bandwagon. The simple fact that it is free, easy to use, and is a great way to keep in contact with friends in other States or parts of the world is why I think Facebook has become so popular.  The downside to social media websites like Facebook has been in the news a bit over the last few years is things like cyber bullying and cyber stalking.  I think it is very important for parents to be watching over their kids shoulder (but still giving them some privacy) to make sure they are not speaking to people that they have only met with over the internet for the simple reason, you really have no idea if they are who they claim  to be.  Cyber bullying is another big issue and personally think it is great that kids shows like the Disney Channel promoting Anti-Cyber bullying and spreading the word.   Well that’s it from me until next week!
