    I hate to tell you people were killed way before facebook was invented...you can say anything is bad it all depends on how you use it. So pediophiles use church as a way to molest kids and get away with it, does that mean that church is bad?

    face book didnt cause anything...guns dont kill people, people kill people. I think the court system is more at fault than a communication tool!

    I have to say Curious has a point. How many murders did Facebook cause? Here is only one story. A predator on the Sex Offenders' Register killed a 17-year-old girl he met and groomed on Facebook after luring her to a secret meeting. The 32-year-old posed as a 16-year-old boy to befriend Ashleigh Hall on the social networking site. But within hours of their first meeting, the teenager was dead. Thanks to Facebook.

    How can someone be "honored" when his creation has directly resulted in bullying, stalking, kidnapping, and murder?
