Facebook is all cool for staying in touch with freinds/ family or colleauges, posting updates, pictures,vids, maintaining privacy and many other nifty features. Still Facebook is always criticised, complaints, sued by many online users on regular basis.
I just see Facebook as a tool, neither inherently good or bad. I do like it for staying in touch with friends but there was a time I got a little obsessive with it but that ain't a problem anymore since I rarely visit it. I do deactivate it a few days before my birthday and reopen it later (I know, so sad, I need help).
to be honest, if it wasn't for FB i wouldn't have met some the most interesting friends i have today. though what i use fb for is almost entirely against FB's general policy in which you're only supposed to stay in touch with folks you already know in real life.
Well, if it weren't for Facebook I would have not met my wife; one of my FB friends posted a video that led me to search for another video, that ended up with me finding a video of my wife and started talking to her, so without FB that chain of events would not have happened. That being said, a lot of FB behavior is a bit annoying to me, so I make sure my friend list is small and only have in there people who are important to me.

Just kidding, congrats to you guys meeting on FB :)
I think most of the younger people who hate Facebook hate it for no other reason than the fact that is popular. Many of the older generations who hate Facebook seem to hate it because it is just another modern product that in their opinion makes people anti-social.
I rarely use it for anything outside of tracking the pages of celebrities and products I follow. In terms of people who complain that Facebook invades your privacy, common sense needs to come into play. I limit what I post to reduce the chances of identity theft.
Some of the common sense things to consider are to avoid posting personal information that can be used to reset your passwords. Mother's maiden name? If you are friends with a maternal uncle, unmarried aunt, or grandparent they got her maiden name. First pet? All of those pictures of Fluffy might give it away. So proud of your first car that you have to post it? That's a security question too. High school mascot? Post what high school you attended and Google will do the rest. Post your birthday and hometown and you just gave away the first few digits of your SSN. Like your bank and you told crooks who you bank with and all they need is your username and your security question answers.
Facebook is aight for keeping up with classmates or adding girls you used to like. But when it becomes so obsessive for you, where you're constantly looking at your i phone when you're out, it's a problem.
U know what's stupid about facebook? One girl told me, whoah I saw your fb pics or your instagram pics. You looked buff in them. I was like baby I'm right here! Why do u need to reference fb when u can see my arms live? I'm right here!!!
I don't mind Facebook. I don't use it a lot, but when I'm in the bathroom I normally scroll through it looking for funny images posted by others. Other than that I don't use it for much except for talking to some out of state family now and then.
