  14. 14. Criticism of Facebook<br />Identity theft<br />One can easily create an account and impersonate another person, often for malicious or mischievous reasons and to harass others. This criticism is not unique to Facebook, since any site using user accounts has the potential for users to create false accounts.<br />
  15. 15. Criticism of Facebook<br />Religious Discrimination<br />In 2010, Facebook reportedly allowed an objectionable page, deemed by some to be anti-Muslim. The Islamic Lawyers Forum filed a petition with Pakistan's Lahore High Court. On May 18, 2010, Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry ordered Pakistan's Telecommunication Authority to block access to Facebook until May 31. The offensive page had provoked street demonstrations in Muslim countries due to visual depictions of Mohammed, which are regarded as blasphemous by Muslims. <br />
  16. 16. Criticism of Facebook<br />Government censorship<br />Because of the open nature of Facebook, several countries have banned access to it including Syria,China,Iran,and Vietnam<br />
  17. 17. Criticism of Facebook<br />Facebook safety<br />Facebook has recently admitted that their response rates to complaints regarding pornography and harassment are poor. The social networking site will now be changing their conduct to ensure that children are protected from inappropriate content and Paedophiles.<br />Social Networking websites and the internet in general have been a playground for molesters that use these to prey on children. Last summer, Myspace in the US removed thousands of users from its network after being pressured by the US government.<br />
  18. 18. Facebook should work more on providing protection to those who are under 18 years to avoid legal problems.<br /> <br />its also should Prevent problems related to religious, because it causes the loss of many of its users.<br /> <br />The Arab and Islamic companies should interact more with Facebook to expand their knowledge and deliver a positive image to the outside.<br /> <br />the Interact of universities and educational institutions with Facebook is because of the presence of a large segment of students and learners at the site.<br />Recommendations<br />
