Let me just check what I wrote.....
Yep, checked, I wrote that they 'can be a force for good', not 'are always a force for good'.
I know of lots of groups on Facebook where people get huge amounts of support for their mental health issues. I also know of the existence a group where suicidal people are offered advice on how to get on with it!
Damage in some situations and support in others. It has to be more about education in how to use groups and social media effectively, it is not as simple as just saying 'it's all bad'.
I am going to have to side with AS on this one. I have seen here (but can't give a link) very considerable concern at the detriment to children's normal development when they are stuck in front of a screen from a young age. Both mental and physical.
That isn't Facebook though, that is computers and screen time. They could be doing their homework and school assignments on laptops, it all counts towards screen time.
