Criticism of Facebook has led to international media coverage and significant reporting of its legal troubles and the outsize influence it has on the lives and health of its users and employees, as well on its influence on the way media, specifically news, is reported and distributed. Notable issues include Internet privacy, such as use of a widespread "like" button on third-party websites tracking users,[1][2] possible indefinite records of user information,[3] automatic facial recognition software,[4][5] and its role in the workplace, including employer-employee account disclosure.[6] The use of Facebook can have negative psychological effects that include feelings of jealousy[7][8][clarification needed] and stress,[9][10] a lack of attention,[11] and social media addiction that in some cases is comparable to drug addiction.[12][13]

Facebook's operations have also received coverage. The company's electricity usage,[14] tax avoidance,[15] real-name user requirement policies,[16] censorship policies,[17][18] handling of user data,[19] and its involvement in the United States PRISM surveillance program have been highlighted by the media and by critics.[20] Facebook has come under scrutiny for 'ignoring' or shirking its responsibility for the content posted on its platform, including copyright and intellectual property infringement,[21] hate speech,[22][23] incitement of rape[24] and terrorism,[25][26] fake news,[27][28][29] Facebook murder, crimes, and violent incidents live-streamed through its Facebook Live functionality.[30][31][32]

The company and its employees have also been subject to litigation cases over the years,[33][34][35][36] with its most prominent case concerning allegations that CEO Mark Zuckerberg broke an oral contract with Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra to build the then-named "HarvardConnection" social network in 2004, instead allegedly opting to steal the idea and code to launch Facebook months before HarvardConnection began.[37][38][39] The original lawsuit was eventually settled in 2009, with Facebook paying approximately $20 million in cash and 1.25 million shares.[40][41] A new lawsuit in 2011 was dismissed.[42] Some critics make predictions of Facebook's end based on the problems which they identify. Facebook has been banned by several governments for various reasons, including Syria,[43] China,[44] and Iran.[45]
