No matter what Mark Zuckerburg or the various people affiliated with Facebook might claim high and low, Facebook is not a social media platform that your child should be using with such reckless abandon. Not only is that a platform that takes cyber-bullying to a whole new level but it also is responsible for the following infractions.
Once upon a time people used to use blogs to vent about feelings that no one really cared about anyway. The problem with such blogs was that the sad desperate and hate-spreaders, also known as trolls in the current lingo, was that nobody was ever going to read it. Now with Facebook and its 2000 worded status to their rescue, not only could they have like minded individuals read their stupid ventage but also spread that negativity by sharing. A child with raw and untapped potential should not be ever exposed to a portal like this.
While it may work in some instances, but unfriendly and removing people that probably happen to hate almost everything in the world is not the answer to getting rid of all the negativity that surrounds your child. By deleting them your child may be able to distance themselves but that would not necessarily prevent it when the closest peers might be at fault. People participating ion slut-shamming and being mean because they think themselves superior to other may very well turn out to be worst than those who flat out have the guts to say they hate everything.
Even if your child is an angel plucked out of heaven and send on this earth, Facebook newsfeed might just be too tempting to let them stay that way. While some people might not be actively participating in spreading activity over Facebook, there newsfeed is not going to let them stay that way. From an irrelevant status that makes no sense to one that expresses strong point of views may have them leading up unpleasant debates and negative comments too which they would have sworn off.
The Profile Wars
Even if there is no negativity intended here, one is certainly inspired in one way or another. Your child goes to his or her profile and all he sees are like 5 to 10 likes and 1 comment while a rich, outgoing friend of his or her has a 100 likes on a status they posted like an hour ago. The intentions behind such occurrences are never negative, yet indirectly they do have a huge hand at spreading just that. It also makes your child resent you for not giving them the kind of life where they could have been on the top of the social pyramid and clamour all the fame.
The Fake Events
When your child goes not get the attention they think they deserve by their peers, more often than not, they will not take it well. They would do anything to be on the top of the social hierarchy, including photos hoping their pictures and creating fake life events in order to gain attention of their peers. Such fake and lying behaviour might not have immediate effects but can play a big role in the grand scheme of things.
Portal of The Unpleasant News Updates
Media has indeed been granted a freedom of speech, which means they will broadcast any news reel or any clip as they deem fit, whether or not it meets the national broadcasting standards. Yet, at the same time media understands that they are reaching out to millions of people, young and adults alike and they need to aware of the type and sensitivity of the content they are broadcasting, thus they tend to be discreet about it. On the other hand, as soon as something happens anywhere in the world, Facebook users post candid photos and videos of these events on their profiles, regardless of the fact that whether or not such content should be so insensitively shared.
All these reasons and more make Facebook an unsafe portal for sensitive minds. Yes, there might be a few out there amongst the hundreds who might not stagger under the weight of such occurrences, but all children cannot said to be made of the same steel. Therefore, since physical monitoring tends to bear on fruit in matters like these, parents need to invest in spy application to kee
