Criticism Of Facebook

Facebook has met criticism on a range of issues, including online privacy, child safety, hate speech and the inability to terminate accounts without first manually deleting the content. In 2008, many companies removed their advertising from the site because it was being displayed on the pages of controversial individuals and groups. The content of user pages, groups, blogs, and forums has been criticized for promoting or dwelling upon controversial and inflammatory topics (e.g., politics, religion, sex, etc.). There have been several issues with censorship, both on and off the site.

The changes made by Facebook have been criticized, in particular the new format launched in 2008 and the changes in Facebook's Terms of Use, which removed the clause detailing automatic expiry of deleted content. Facebook has also been sued several times.

Famous quotes containing the word criticism:

    The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art—and, by analogy, our own experience—more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
