* DoubleStandard:
** Facebook's [[http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05/29/campaigners_get_facebook_response/ announcement]] of a new policy has stuck some users as this. The new rules would ban anything that "promotes violence" against women. While this sounds like a good idea many have criticized the rather vague and loose wording as well as the fact that is does not offer the same protections for men. The fact that it bases its judgments and training solely on feminist claims and ([[UsefulNotes/{{Feminism}} misunderstood]]) beliefs has also drawn [[http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/feminist-lies-feminism/facebook-hates-women/ some attention.]]
** Regardless of your opinions on the matter, it is obvious that Facebook has a very strong anti-gun bias. Pro-gun Facebook pages get closed down on a regular basis for no stated reason, while groups such as Mom's Demand Action literally support genocide against gun owners and are never punished by Facebook.
** While hate groups against the usual targets (Jews, African Americans, LGBT people, etc.) are not tolerated, hate groups against [[AcceptableEthnicTargets smaller, lesser known minorities]] (lesser known in the US at least) and the "majority" groups, like whites, males, or heterosexual/cisgender people, are often left alone no matter how many times they get reported for being racist.

** If you post detailed information about when and where you plan on traveling for your honeymoon, and your address, and don't have strict privacy settings ... well, don't be surprised when your house gets burgled while you're away.

** Which leads to some odd situations, where if somebody posts something genuinely sad, like the death of a family member... well, "like" isn't exactly appropriate, is it? It sort of forces a comment.


Added DiffLines:

** Mitigating this somewhat, in 2015 they added a more diverse range of ways to respond to a story without commenting, allowing the user to select from a range of emoticons representing "love", "haha", "yay", "wow", "sad" and "angry". None of these generally see as much use as the standard "like" button, but at least the option's there.

As of 2014, Facebook remains one of the most popular (and actually still more low-key; it hasn't taken as much flak as [[NewMediaAreEvil whipping boy]] [=MySpace=]) networking sites out there. More and more sites are adding Facebook Like buttons on their pages, making it look as if Facebook is taking over the Internet. It lacks most of [=MySpace's=] profile-customization options; no sparklies or rainbow-colored fonts allowed. This may be to Facebook's benefit, as it creates a more professional feeling. However, there are a huge number of applications that one can add to one's profile, for anything from horoscopes to celebrity-lookalike pictures. As of now, it has over '''''[[HolyShitQuotient 1 billion]]''''' users.
