Facebook was launched in February of 2004; it is one of the most popular and well-known social networks today. Facebook can re-connect high school friends and keep you up to date on your friends and families lives. Facebook is for all ages to enjoy, but the behavior of some Facebook users is out of control. Facebook has become the website where teens argue with each other and create dis pages about people and certain schools. Facebook is becoming the new “Myspace,” the website that no one gets on any more because it is being replaced by twitter and Instagram.

“I like Twitter and Instagram more than Facebook. Twitter is just a place where you can say what you want without family being in your business. Instagram is just your own personal gallery of random pictures twitter and instagram both are priceless,” said Senior Zinziey Ndlovu.

Twitter is a social networking website that allows you to tweet series of things you encounter daily. A man named Jack Dorsey created twitter in March of 2006; twitter was launched that July. Since the launch of twitter it has become the tenth most viewed website on the Internet.

“Twitter is awesome because it’s constantly being updated, and I know what my friends are thinking twenty-four seven,” said senior Cassandra Thompson.

I check my social networking sites like every thirty minutes continue Thompson.

“ I even check  Myspace sometimes,” said Thompson.

“I like twitter. Facebook has too much drama and fights,” said sophomore Briana Kent.

Instagram is a social media site that lets you take as many pictures as you want and send them right to the World Wide Web. It lets you show the world pictures you have taken right after you have taken them. Two men named Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger created Instagram and launched it in October of 2010.

“I like instagram because it’s fun and your pictures get to the web really fast. It’s also a cool way to show people how you interpret life through pictures,” said senior Tyrell Wilks-Williams.

“I like Instagram better because Facebook it boring there is nothing to do,” said sophomore Imara Bower.
