Facebook was created in 2004, Facebook was reported to have more than 21 million registered members, generating 1.6 billion pages views" In 2010 more than a billion of people have facebook accounts all over the world. Teenagers & Adults would be on facebook at least 3 to 4 times a day. Have you ever wondered if being on facebook is healthy? No, being on facebook or on other social websites can cause an unhealthy habit that causes issues in your daily life. It can destroy your real social life, being addicted to facebook can cause health issues, and start stalking other "friends" profiles every day.

Being on facebook can destroy your real social life. Especially Young teenagers, teenagers will go on facebook just to play the online games, like "farmland"Which is running their real social life. Young adults would rather feed their game pets, on pet society or take care of their restaurant in restaurant city than to go outside and hang out with their friends & do outdoor activities. It's pointless to play those games, it will just make you anti-social and it will be a waste of your time in life.

By not being in contact with people it causes an effect on the body, levels of hormones such as cuddle chemical oxytocin, which promotes bonding, altered according to whether people were in close contact or not.

Facebook could cause teenagers, young adults, and adults to stalk classmates, co workers, and even their ex boyfriends/girlfriends. Stalking other people can disrupt your normal life, because you're always making sure what that person is doing. For example I have a friend that is obsessed with checking her boyfriend's profile, and it's affecting her life. She can't be still or calm because she's always wondering if he's talking to other girls or if he has changed his relationship status. Is facebook wasn't created we wouldn't
