This chapter presents the various materials found to be relevant in this study. The materials are the result of exploring sources of literature and studies that have shed light to the problem under study. The use of Facebook

Facebook has launched in February 2004, owned and operated by Facebook, Incorporated. It started out as a way for life minded students to share their life experienceit was foundded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roomates and fellow Harvard University Students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew

McColumn, Dustin Moskovit and Chris Hughes. It gradually added support for students at various other innersities before opening it to Highschool students and eventually to anyone aged 13 and over.

Users of facebook can create profiles with photos, list of personal interest, contact information and other personal information. Users can communicate with

friends and outher users through private or public message and chat feature. They can also create and join interest groups and like pages (called fan page until april 19,2010). Some of which are maintained organization as a means of advertising. Facebook has been prompted to add a third gender, other or intersex tab and the gender option which contains only male and female. Facebook and enable users to choose their own privacy settings and choose who can see a specific parts of their profile. The website is free to users and generates revenue from advertising such as banners ads. Facebook requires a users name and profile picture ( if applicable) to be accessible by everyone. Users can control who sees other information they have shared, as well as who can find them in searches, through their privacy settings (Lewis, 2012).


People all over the world have embrace the facebook lifestyle. Many log all multiple times a day, update thier status every hour, and keep tabs on friends and relatives through this social media site. With this powerful magnetic draw, facebook is certainly having an impact on communication. Facebook has affected the social life and activity of people various ways. With this availability on many mobile devices, facebook allows users to continuesly stay in touch with friends, relatives and pther aquiatances wherever

they are in world, as long as there is access to the interest or beliefs through groups. Other pages and has been known to reunite lost family members and friends because of the widespread reach of its network (Lewis, 2013).


Advertising is used to encourage or pursade audience (viewers, readersor listeners; sometimes a specific group) to continue or take some new action. Most commonly, the desired result is to drive consumer behavior with respect to a comercial offering, although political and idelogical advertising is also comon. In Latin, advertere means. To turn the mind toward. The purpose of advertising may also be to resume or reassure employees or shareholders is a company is viable or successful. Advertising messages are usually paid for by sponsors and viewed via various traditional media such as newspaper, magazines, televison, commercial, radio advertising, outdoor advertising or direct mail; or new media such as bllogs, websites or text messages (Wortham, 2012).

Added to that, Mckinsey 2012 said that social media has been inspirng change in the way business leaders interact with their consumer base and for good reasons. Companies that adopt social technologies can see a sopercent increase in costumers satisfaction, 48% increase in business leads, and 24% in

revenue. Online advertising is a form of promotion taht uses the internent and world wide web for the expressed purpose of delivering marketing messages to attract custumers. Online ads are delivered by an ad server. Examples of online advertising include contextual ads taht appear on search engine result pages, banner ads, in tex ads, rich media Ads, social network advertising, online classified advertising, advertising networks and email marketing, including email sapam.


Social media has completely disrupted the way business assess their performance. These days, business can reach beyond traditional geographical boundaries with social media, which means they ae more exposed to disruptors and competition who want to gain market shares. As social media continues, the long-term implications particularly for those young enough to never have known anything different , could be significant. Maybe as with fast food, the soulution lies in moderation (Likierman, 2012).

The effects of Facebook to the highschool students

The school has conducted research and testing to determine whether social networks, and facebook as the most popular among them, affecting in any


way the performance of students. The testing was done so that for a period of three months access to facebook was allowed. The results showed that asample of three months was just enough to make a conclusion. In the third month,during the period of facebook usage, it was noticed sllight deterioration of grades, but what is even more important is lack of concentration and poor knowledge acceptance. This test has shown that facebook and other social networks have the most negative influence on quality of education (Wortham, 2012).

Negative Effects

According to Prospero Pulma Jr.(2012) seven and a half million users out of facebooks more tha 900 million users is a minuscule minority but it refers to children and preteens who are exploring a largely adult world where they are exposed to age inappropriate material predators and bullies. Parents should not rely on Facebooks anti-bullying fools because the system is like a police officer reacting to crime after its commision rather than a thick fence keeping the wolves off the sheep.

Facebook is notorious for causing couples to break up. It can ruin relationship because no one wants to see their girlfriend/boyfriend telling other people that they look cute, or liking their pictures or instant messaging them


constantly. It builds up jealousy, which quite a bit of tension in a relationship. The fact that many people try to hook up with others over Facebook while not realizing that these people are in a relationship doesnt elp the issue.

At the end of the day you may have seen your causins new outfit or talked to your sister who is in college, but you still havent really accomplished anything in the hours that you were on critics of facebook claim that it is a world wide distraction and even obsession that amounts to nothing except for significant amounts of time wasted. There is even a group yhat is trying to stunt the influence of Facebook called Facebook Detox.

Facebook is a cause for insecurities due to the fact that it makes people compare themselves to others. How can you not whan all you see is picture of your friends and acquiantances on your newsfeed?

Facebook is a very stalker friendly website. Theoretically, someone that you dont even know can say that they go to your school, add you, and get all of your information. This may include your phone number, house address, and locations you visit frequently. Not to mention the fact that they will be able to go through all of your pictures nd get to know you completely without you ever knowing. This is a scary though but it is real.


Added to that, Renalyn Reponte said that it make the students more addicted in social networking sites for it will lead to lessen their interest in thier studies, they are busy in chatting thie friends than scanning their notes. It would be waste of time and it can distroy humanity. It can also cause cybercrime. It can lower the grades and it can affect to them.

The Positive Effects

Facebook has come so much a part of peoples lives because there are positive effects of facebook has on people, and they can be quite significant.

Facebook is a great way of keeping in touch with your family and friends that live far away with instant messaging and even video chat, Facebook is the perfect environment to stay connected with the status updates, photos and profile infoemation, it can keep you up to date on happening of all of your close ones.

Facebook makes meeting new people extremely easy due to the facts that is allow you to add up thousands of friends and acts as a social melting pot of the internet. If you comment on it, maybe you to will strike up your own conversations. This can lead to a great friendship down the road. Most people find it a lot easier to start a conversation with someone over facebook than in real life, so a lot of Highschool relationships tends to start there.


Facebook makes expressing yourself very simple with status updates between showing off your favorite songs lyrics, to posting pictures of your new outfit, facebook is the most common way that people express themselves these days. It is a lot hader to feel embarassment over the internet than in persons, so people find it easier to rent their feelings on facebook.

Such sites also providde those isolated by diability or environment witha ray and fullfilling social life for anyone who is unable to leave their own house.

Finally social networking sites can bring people together with varying backrounds who might otherwise never have met and then encourage them to extend that experience into real world social functions(Wortham, 2012)

The significant relationship between Facebook and its users

Users is very important to Facebook website because w/o users facebook is useless. Facebook will not be a popular website, if we cant have the online chatting, even playing online games or pasting in the wall of our facebook friends. Business deals in the would not be done and even having new friends and also other communicating to our friends relatives and other people who live far away(Delacruz, 2012).


Added to that (Thompson, 2012) said that as with other enabling technologies, such as email, web search engines, and online publishing outlets like wikipedia, the overall message is that, in moderation, facebook and other networking sites are a good thing. They let people connect, whether they knew each other in the first place or not-staying in touch or making new friends. Yes, there are potential drawback in the form of very public cases where such friendships have degenerated into something more sinister, but the positive far out weigh them. Success stories include various marriages, business deals, partnerships, and other very encouraging endorsements of virtual communication for social interaction is likely to damaged rather than enrich lives. Everyone, at some point, with very few expections, needs the face to face contact in order to maintain their social skills.


Facebook is a very popular social networking site where you can chat person through online messages, find new friends, socialize with others, play online games, post in the walls, upload photos of yours, like & comments status of yours friends post and tag yourself or your other friends.


Facebook has come an important tool for communication in the lines of its ardent users because of the benefits gained by those who frequent this website. They can send messages to their friends and family who are living to other country.

Facebook is also used by some business man to have business deals. They use facebook to have an advertisement of their products or company in order for them to pursade the viewers, to use their products.



Facebook has many uses, it can be used in communication, business, deals and entertainment such as Online games, likes, comments, status, updates, poke, post and tag themeselves and others. Facebook is really a popular networking site because as of today there are over one billion existing answer of this website and out of it over 7.5 million users are 13 years under. Facebook is a great influnce to some of the students because they get addicted to this website and thats the reason why did they not perform well in school. Good this about facebook are the benefit we can get from it like keeping in touch with family and friends, making new friends, expressing yourself and we learn how to socialize with other people but despite of these positive effects there are also negative effects such as Cyberbullying, ruined relationship, distruction, insecurity and stalker friendly.
