I just read a news that 4 students is fired from their school because they used facebook to offend their teachers. And now, they haven't get a new school because most of school don't want hire them as a student in their school. Also, many workes also getting fired because they always FaceBook-ing in their office. How pity they are. They lost many things because FaceBook. What do you say? Is Facebook always make problems? Or maybe, the users is the problem? I want to hear your opinion. Thank you! Happy MyLotting!

Facebook is just a tool, I think. just like knife, swords and other weapons. in one side, they are really useful for our life as a tool to defense country or ourselves, but in other side they are really dangerous for our life cos they can be a tool for murdering others or hurt people. so which one will we choose, the good function or bad function? just like facebook. i don't think that facebook is that bad. i can finally find my lost friends through facebook and have a lot of fun with it as well. so the choice is in our hand..^^

Yeah, agree with you. Sometimes FaceBook is good and sometimes not if we use it for bad things. The problems is in User is thing. They should control their self!

A good analogy and agree with your opinion bu, there is less attention from social network user that is privacy. They are children who don't know to use social network (FB)correctly. they are free to talk anything but over free speech. this is caused by less Internet Education and decline in attitudes. Be aware in social network.

I dont think that Facebook in itself is the problem. Its the students action that is a very big problem. Their bad attitude led them to be fired from their school and now they are paying the price for their actions. Facebook did not have anything to do with it. It just gave them the place where to exhibit their stupidity

Yeah, the user or in this case, the student is the problem. They can't control their self. Thanks for your response!

first of all..no one should use social networking at workplace, its not proper to indulge in personal matters at work place, so it becomes problem and its not the fault of face-book, it depends on how and when u use it....even at home u should take care..not to be too close with any unknown person, this may lead to problems in future....

Yeah, like what I said before... The problem is on the users! They can not control their self to access FaceBook in the right time.

Face book is a socal networking website. Just like any other social networking website out there, it cannot be held responsable for the actions of its users. The user is the thing that makes the site what it is. Those students and workers were stupid. Most think what you post online doesn't have an impact on your life, this is seriously wrong. What you say online never goes away and it spreads like wildfire. Even something that that can be taken as a joke in some circles isn't. Those people weren't smart and they made the mistakes.

I think it's all up to the individual how something is used instead of blaming the tool. It'd be like blaming a hammer for the work that it does instead of the hand that swings it. Although I think it's a little ridiculous for people to be fired over complaining about work on their facebook pages - especially if they aren't friends with anyone in their office - that's a bit invasive. It's just like before the internet when you could get canned for gossiping about your boss - gotta be careful out there. Not fair, but that's the way it is.

Anytime you post anything onto Facebook or any other social network, you are taking the chance that someone will be offended. If you post on a public forum, then I feel you have to take responsibility for what you say as it is all too easy for others to use that against you. It shouldn't be the fault of Facebook or any other site if others take offence.

The fault is in user-self if they can not control to post bad things on social networking site!

It's hard to say who's problem it is. However, when you post and make your opinions public, bad things can happen. I have heard so many people who have lost jobs over small comments that they have posted. My rule of thumb is, don't have anyone on your page that you don't want to have knowledge of what you might say that could be incriminating.

That's why we must really careful to post anythings in Facebook or other site like that. Even in MyLot we must control our self or we will violate the guidelines and lost everything!

In my opinion the problem is not face book but the users,how users use face book. I have a face book account and never offended or used face book to make harm or offend people. I use it for games, to talk with my friends and to post things from my blog and shop. hope everyone uses it responsibly.

What do you mean they hire students? They pay students be in their school? But if these students are using facabook to say things about their teachers then I think that would be their choice. We dont have the so called privacy in facebook so things like this would really happen. Facebook doesn't make problems, users of facebook are the ones making a problem. Too bad facebook has to be a part of it.
• Indonesia
17 Feb 10
not... I mean, the don't want put the student in the school. "Hire" is not always mean being paid! Yeah, Users is the problem!

Don't accuse facebook is trouble maker, the user is trouble maker. I think, if they can manage their own thats problem will never happen.

Yeah, The user is the trouble. They must control theirself.

I believe that facebook was not designed to cause problems to individuals. Facebook is a social network that aims to interact with people all over the globe and connect with loved ones,friends and to meet new people. We have to understand that we are responsible for our actions and don't blame the outcome on Facebook.
• Indonesia
17 Feb 10
Yeah of course. That's why, I think, the problems is in the user. They can't control their self.

emm.. "What we receive is the result of our own deeds", i think facebook just toll and what the people doing is determine, many people prefer blame the tool rather than correct themself..

Like I said in others comment, the problems is on user-self.

The golden rule is to never post anything anywhere online, using your real name, that you don't want the world to see. That includes employers and school administrators. Facebook itself if not the problem, it's the users who don't make good decisions when it comes to their online activities.
• Indonesia
17 Feb 10
Yeah, we must use Privacy Setting if we want no one know what we post in facebook or twitter or any site like that!

Well I have an account with facebook but I really don't like it at all. I only go to it when someone messages me. However, I do believe people who write horrible things about others should be automatically deleted and not allowed to sign up again. I also believe people are so "stupid" to think that they can put things on there and no one is going to find out about it. Whether you are talking about a boss, a teacher, other students. Why do people have to be so mean and ignorant. I don't think its facebook's problem I believe it the users who are doing all the wrong things and should know better.
• Indonesia
17 Feb 10
Yeah... The problems belongs to the users. They must very careful with what they want to say on FaceBook

Facebook is just a tool, to make your life better or worse depends on yourself. People need to know how to carry themselves even though they are online, casting insults, racist remarks etc are not acceptable whether in real life or in the Internet. The case of 4 students is not an isolated case, such cases has also happened before when people make inappropriate remarks in forums and websites. As for workers on facebook during office hours, I think some self-control is needed. You need to know what's your responsibility during working time. Facebook is only meant to be used during your leisure time.

Yeah. It depends on user-self. Agree with you!
