Social networking has been a common use on the Internet in today’s generation. One of the popular social networks is facebook which has over million of members. Most of the users of facebook are students. They like to online facebook because it is fun, enjoyable, and interesting. Because of that facebook makes three bad influences for students. First, students become lazy to study. They will spend their time for some hours in front of the screen either via mobile phone or personal computer only for online on facebook. So, they will neglect their homework, task and everything about school. It is possible for them to get bed scores. Second, watching the screen for several times is not good for the health of our eyes because the radiation of computer and mobile phones damage our sight, the radiation will cause our eyes to get hurt, and if they continue starting watching the screen for hours everyday they will notice that their visions are not good anymore. Third, they will spend a lot of money because they should buy credits to online on facebook by mobile phone with an Internet facility or they online in the Internet shop (warnet). So, it is hard for students to save their pocket money. Those three bad influences become big problems if the students cannot balance between study and online. Otherwise they will get the badness. They should realize that the most important thing in their life is studying for their success in the future.
