Kurt Soller and Sarah Kliff both wrote short stories about their opinion on Facebook and their personal experiences with it. Kurt titled his “Facebook: Why I Love It..” and Sarah titled hers “Facebook: Why I Hate It..”. Facebook has changed the way most people live their life. Get this.

He believes that Facebook is the best way to interact with friends and family during our busy lives. Why is Facebook hated?
