Facebook gives people a platform to illustrate just how bad they can be and allows them to get away with it. If you remove controls from society you get anarchy, online life is the same. I'm not advocating policing the Internet, but if you remove the control rods from a reactor it's going to go wild; Facebook didn't just allow the rods to be removed, it threw them away. Facebook evil? Facebook narcissistic? Facebook making people worse? Nah! not all by itself, but it has given people the platform to perpetrate all of these defaming traits. Does that make it responsible? Probably, in many instances, but most definitely 100% accountable! But FB isn't out there on it's own, there are others that are just as culpable. The term 'Social Media' is a misnomer as it certainly doesn't bring out the 'social' aspects that people are capable of, generally it brings out the worst and doesn't just allow it, it wallows in it. Forums are a better option (not perfect by any means) and better alternative to so-called Social Media. Hopefully, somewhere along the line, the glorious days of healthy debate and heated discussions will return; but, if we want those days to return we must somehow keep the fires burning and keep the faith.
