Facebook – the good, the bad and the ugly

I’m a teacher and I use facebook. I enjoy it. I can find out a lot of what is happening with my family and friends. These are things I would never have known before. I can find out that people are engaged, married, pregnant, given birth etc. I can find out how someone’s day is going, or share my own day/thoughts/feelings. It’s always nice to get affirmation, warm fuzzies etc.

However, along with the good also comes the bad and the ugly. There are some posts that you just don’t want to see. But the one I read the other day, although bad/ugly, was one I wanted to know. Written on an old students wall was, ‘RIP’. 21 years old and taken from this world. I knew him quite well and worked with both his mother and grandmother. A sad, difficult, disheartening moment.

Facebook – the good, the bad and the ugly. You know, I never would’ve known about this except for facebook.

  1. I too am finding out information that I wouldn’t have otherwise known of. I too put my thoughts and feelings out there sometimes to share and am often more than pleasantly surprised with the feedback, just knowing that someone cares enough to leave a comment is often really rewarding. I like the fact that FB is many different things for many people, you can choose the level of engagement you like and not get left behind if you don’t choose much!

    Cheers FB, just dont bring in user charges!
