Facebook: An Obsession for Many

I think facebook is often used for things it should not be. This infographic displays information for how many people use this social networking site and what they use it for. Facebook comes in handy for keeping up with family and friends who live out of state, but anyone who uses facebook to look up the news is looking in the wrong place. Usually the only type of “news” I see are ranting articles written by people on either of the extremes whose only goal is to simply tear down other people. I also dislike facebook and other social networks for the fact that it reduces the amount of time people spend in face-to-face communication. Social norms have a tendency to break down when there is anonymity and a lack of nonverbal communication. This is something I have seen first-hand in working in a call center, and I do not like what it does one bit.
