Practice Argument Essay

EAP2- Section C


Could the world be in your hands? Of course, it could be with new technological services. Everyone can receive the world in his/her hands. Facebook is one of these services that you can use easily, just by clicks. As Suddath (2009) says, “people write 25 facts about themselves and post them on their Facebook pages, just as they do with videos, status updates and photos of last weekend’s party” (para. 2). Moreover, there is much fuss over Facebook, which is a communicating networking website. People who are against using Facebook omit the positive side. They see that some of what we call "friends" on Facebook are people who we are hardly know as Suddath mentions (2009). On the other hand, there are millions of people who have Facebook accounts; they are enjoying themselves and have their positive views about its use. For instance, Facebook might be effective by filling people’s needs in a way they couldn’t fill them before it (Reardon, 2009).

In my opinion, the three biggest advantages of Facebook use are learning a new technology, sharing with others our diaries, and keeping relationships.

First of all, Facebook is a good way to practice technology and to learn more about it. This includes all Faceboook tools for posting notes, linking URLs, chatting with others and adding video clips. Also, it supplies the opportunities to get free learning about recent methods in the technology world, especially in things that are related to Internet network and computer using. Facebook is used to fit us with modern life.

Second, Facebook benefits people by releasing their inhibitions when they start writing their journals and talking more about their daily lives. Sometimes, this way helps people to abate life pressure, while they are sharing with others their lives’ details. Actually, finding one or more who can feel our pains and happiness is good, mainly if they do not know how you are and so they do not need something from you. They just give you all these senses because they want that. In addition, people who have Facebook accounts in this case can share their experiences together and learn more about each other in a simple and easy way.

Finally, Facebook is creative way to be constant with family members and friends. Not only that, it could be a successful way to find old relatives and friends and contact with them. Also, it is useful for reaching people who live far away. The good thing is meeting these people at any time. Facebook using provides more friends from different countries and cultures. That leads to improving our knowledge about the rest of the world. Facebook is not only a way to meet people, it has “ also built the community” (Reardon, 2009, para. 16).

In conclusion, Facebook has many benefits, such as joining technology, sharing journals, and reaching relationships. People should deal with Facebook as a part of technology whose advantages they can use instead of leave it at all.
