With Friends Like These written by Tom Hodgkinson talks about the effect that Facebook has on the consumer. Throughout his writing Hodgkinson is very much against the use of the internet because it is an imaginary world that interconnects everyone without much effort than the use of a keyboard and mouse, everything only being a click away. He also continues to emphasize that there isn’t much effort being put into communicating and networking with others in person, putting us on the verge of losing that skill. Throughout his writing the author uses a serious tone that can come across as very negative as he speaks out against not only Facebook, but other big name companies such as Paypal, Coca-Cola and Blockbuster. The use of a descriptive example such as, “A friend of mine recently told me that he spent a Saturday night at home alone on Facebook, drinking at his desk.

Social media helps teens advance socially in the world, but it seems a side effect of social media is depression. Lara Devgan, a plastic surgeon in New York City and writer of ABC news, writes in her article, “Facebook May Be Making You Sad,” that a study from the University of Michigan shows that the more people use Facebook, the more unhappy they become. The study showed that users of social media sites were dissatisfied with their lives after they got off their social media site. People may get more friends on social media sites, but the more they see their friend’s lives, the more they are unhappy with their own lives. This is just a natural human action.

Both users and nonusers of Carmex will potentially take the survey because Carmex will not know who they are sending the survey to. A disadvantage of this method is that many of the households will not respond because they do not care about taking a survey for Carmex.

An advantage of this is most of the feedback will come from devote Carmex users who want their opinion to be heard.
I was hesitant to get it because I feel that whenever I did set up a social networking account a new networking site was created making the old one obsolete. I did not feel like trying to keep up, but I finally broke down when I had a biology project due and realized that I did not have my partners’ phone numbers; I did know that they both had a Facebook profile. Although these types of sites do not consume most of my computer time, I do feel that I waste a lot of valuable time of the computer
A good solution might be to block the access to websites such as Facebook, so that technology can continue to be a tool for knowledge and intellectual advancement, rather than socialization. Many friends of mine use Facebook on a daily basis for several reasons: to chat with other friends, to see what other people’s lives look like, or to keep in contact with people that live far away. All five of the friends I asked said Facebook is a very useful website, but it is also addicting and a waste of time most of the time.
