    Facebook is a website that has done an amazing job of connecting people throughout the world. However, because it is so far-reaching, it is capable of causing many problems for those who use it. Here are ten ways that Facebook can get its users into trouble.

    1. Investigations By Employers

    People have a habit of putting a lot of their activities on Facebook. Sometimes, these aren’t things you would want your boss or potential boss to see. However, employers increasingly make a point of checking the social media accounts of employees and especially potential new hires. Embarrassing photos of drunken escapades and profanity-laced comment wars are not going to reflect very positively on a potential employee. It’s always a good idea to clean up one’s Facebook page and set more stringent privacy settings before a big interview, but old posts could still resurface and convince the employer not to offer the job.

      It would not too wrong to say that the Internet has destroyed young lives. I have a number of relatives who did poorly in their studies, because they are so focused on Youtube, Facebook, They can hardly concentrate 15 -20 minutes on a Maths book and they flit to the Internet-movies, Youtube, celebrity gossip. If parents don’t control and guide from young, they are gone, lives wasted.

      In this new society that we’ve all agreed to be a part of, your Facebook
      page is an extension of yourself. For this reason, it’s not a good idea
      to post anything there that you wouldn’t normally say it will really get you into trouble.

      Quote from # 4:

      “Another source of mental anguish is the steady parade of news stories
      describing tragic events both locally and globally. Such extended
      exposure to unpleasant occurrences can have a detrimental effect on the
      well-being of the average Facebook user.”

      So they are saying that the news from any news source, including CNN, is not good to listen to. Most of what I see on CNN online is bad news.
