Students like to surf internet in the leisure time. Students like to spend their times to surf internet because the internet provides high technology in social networking and as known as the library too. We can expect that some students likes to join the internet facilities such like face book, blog, and watch free online movie. Based on the survey, the students like to fill their leisure time with face book. Here, we guest that this facility has the advantage and disadvantage.
