-The teenage years are the most important years of your life.

In mi opinión, I think that these years are very important, because this age is the best age to study and work at the same time, or only study.
If you ask to your parents if they miss the is teenage years, normally, that say yes, they said that it is the best time, of their lives.
But, it has disadvantages, for example, we have to be responsible and we have to do housework and a lot of errands.
We also have good things, for example, we fall in love quickly, and for people this is bad, but not always, if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend and love each other it is beautiful.
Also, you want to know everything, you try to improve in all your hobbies or you want the boy or girl that you love notices you.
People usually say that our life is easy, but when you are in it, for you it is not, and it is unpredictable, you don't know what is going to happen to you the next day.

My opinion about Facebook

Some people think Facebook is only one place where we communicate and keep up to day on things from your friends. However, it is not just a place where your friends see your posts

In my opinion, I think Facebook is a social network in which everyone see all your things.  Namely, it is a place where everyone can know what you're doing at all times, stay where we also recorded all conversations and photos that we put on on Facebook. Moreover, is a social network where there are rapists who pretend to be other people and with that, they get that people to send intimate photos.

Furthermore, I believe that the people are not aware of all the negative things that can happen and then post photos and information that they should not.  However I’m not saying that Facebook is awful because if you can do a good use, you can use this social network without problems.

In conclusion, personally, I think that Facebook is a place to communicate with friends not a social network in wich you publish all your moves, nor post inadequate photos.

My opinion about Facebook

Nowadays, almost everybody has a Facebook account. It's a social network site which allows people to find old friends and keep in touch with them. In my opinion, I think that Facebook is a really good tool, but it has some disadvantages.

On the one hand, you can connect to different people from anywhere in the world. This gives you the opportunity to know more about their culture, values and tradition. Also, you can use groups to connect all your close friends together, and a lot more uses.

On the other hand, Facebook is very addictive, so it makes you waste your time. It's clear that it often brings bad effects on students' results and we are losing oral communication skills too.

Furthermore, people can easily get your personal information, so it's recommended not to share your personal information publicly.

In conclusion, I believe that using Facebook safely and not really frequently is the best way to use this social network site.
