Facebook Is a Menace

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Starting with the name of Allah, the most gracious and the merciful. Honorable principal, respected teachers, judges and my dear fellows. Good morning and As Salam-u-Alaikum. Today?s topic is indeed of considerable importance given that most of our youth spends a major portion of their time surfing uselessly on Facebook. Fellows, due to Facebook being so widespread amongst our teenagers their lives are severely affected by it in ways we can?t imagine. My dear friends here are continuously trying to justify the vain use of Facebook. It?s time to understand as to:- 1. Why it?s so attractive in doing practically nothing for hours on fb? 2.

Are we going to waste our precious times on an imprudent application that entails no skills and has not redeeming excellence?
