Is Facebook making you mean; a frequently asked question heard on the radio, television, internet, and even at home? I agree that Facebook can bring out an uglier side in a person. It can cause her to do abhorrent things that she may regret, something that may be regretted for life.

It’s true that Facebook can bring people closer together. Perhaps by helping to reconnect people with close relatives who live across the country or even discovering old childhood friends. But it can also drag them further apart. Facebook gives people the chance to be mean without having to suffer the consequences. A possible scenario could be at school. Imagine you have an argument with your friend because you believe that she gossiped about you to other students. You can fire back with hurtful and degrading comments and later get sent to the Principal’s office and possibly be suspended or expelled. But if you have the same conversation over Facebook, you can easily leave the chat room and go back to your normal life without taking any responsibility for your spiteful comments.

Additionally, Facebook can also be misleading. Imaginably, someone has a discussion with a friend, that person may be excited about some upcoming event and she describes it in all capital letters with several exclamation points. Her friend can get the wrong impression that she is mad or disturbed by something rather than being enthusiastic.Next, Facebook also allows users to post anything on their wall. Very recently, a young man’s college roommate secretly videotaped him while he had a private encounter with another man. He later posted it on his wall for all users to see. The following day that young man later committed suicide by jumping of the George Washington bridge. On one hand, by writing personal info on one’s profile, people can learn more about that person and her background. On the other hand, people can still use it against her,like targeting one with racial comments or giving out malicious labels.

In conclusion, Facebook has no screening, someone can post something not of her belonging that is very private and have the whole world see it, or one may lash out at someone over a simple conversation and have it go downhill. But whether one is the bully or the victim, once it’s posted, it doesn’t go away.


Smoking among teenagers

Many people know that smoking is dangerous, but they still ugnore it and continue to smoke. The increase of smokers among the teenagers is a bad phenomenon that we should realize. Teenagers either boys or girls tend to smoke far a variety of reasons. Boys are smoking because they want to look matured and cool wjile girls are smoking because they want to have a good curve. In other words, they want to get slim. This is not based on my own assumption, but this is based on the research done a few years ago. People are aware that smoking brings a lot of disadvantages to their health. But, the danger of smoking giving no effect to the mentality of the smokers where they continuosly take the cigarettes and make them as their daily food. How disgusting to see teenagers with their school uniform puff the cigarettes smoke to the air in front of the public!

In this post, i want to tell all of you about several effects of smoking. First of all, by smoking we will get older than our real age as wrinkles appear at an early age. Secondly, smoking also gives bad effects to our health in the sense that it contributes to several diseases like mouth throat, cancer, lung and respiratory system. In short, if you are smoking, you will die at an early age as well.

In term of appearance, people who are smoking will have a yellowish skin on their fingers and they smell so badly. This comes from the cigarettes smoke that has strong smell. People can detect whether someone is a smoker or not by just looking at their physical appearance.

In a nutshell, smoking gives no advantages to us. so, people out there who are still smoking, please quit! You can do it!
