I honestly believe that the creation of Facebook as a social media network in many ways has become an advantage and disadvantage from many different perspectives. In a way it has become an advantage for those who need to get in contact with friends, family, classmates, co-workers, etc. As a social media network I believe that it has probably become one of the biggest mediated forms of connection on the web, and has impacted society with the use of technology and the modern age. What I mean by this is remember how Facebook was only allowed to have college students as its users. At that time that was pretty much when it had just started when its designers referring to the Harvard students preferred it to only be in such form, meaning only used by college students. Now were they really expecting it to get as big as it is now maybe yes maybe no. But it certainly went from being a college user site, to becoming open to anyone no matter what age, and no actually has games, advertising, publishing, announcements etc. It has become apart of technology such as an application on devices such as the Iphone, Ipad, Android phones, etc. The form of communication on cell phones, and computers have tagged along together to provide communication for its users anywhere, at anytime. Questions, invitations, relationships, friendships, or arguments have all being seen throughout the network but at the same time a higher standard as an advantage has slowly but surely become a disadvantage or an issue for some such as Zadie Smith. After reading the article it seems as if she really hated Facebook. She compares the generation of a 1.0 user to a 2.0 and her main concern after reading the article and relating it to the title “Generation Why” is basically implying that why use Facebook. What good does it give any of us? Is it really worth using? This idea was stupid of these Harvard Kids. Facebook is a waste of time. I personally felt as if that is what Smith was thinking. At the same time she portrayed her thoughts and feelings from many different perspectives which made me understand what she exactly was trying to say. After I deleted my Facebook account my sophmore year I feel as if it has become a problem to my 5 year relationship, distraction for my academics, and has created problems in some other ways. I also think Smith’s thoughts and belief’s touch up the right things about the social network but at the same time there’s a cause and effect for every bit of it whether it’s good or bad it has improved the lives of others but at the same time has destroyed many.
