In Your Opinion: Facebook's downside is very real

Of course Facebook can be put to good use, as cited by Tania Benkovitz in a recent letter.

But what Jessica Reynolds so vividly recounted and documented in her thoughtful and evocative piece is the the devastating effects Facebook use is having on so many young people.

She did this by weaving together her raw personal testament with solid references to numerous studies. In so doing she created what struck this reader as an ideal piece of journalism about a widespread cultural phenomenon.

What Facebook should be used for and how it is often obsessively used are two different things entirely.
