If you use it that way.  I keep seeing the people who do not use it saying this, but how would they know?  Facebook is what you make it.  It's just a communication medium just like any other.  No better and no worse.  How a person uses it is up to them.  If you are a vapid and vain person posting endless selfies, well, that is all about self.  If you are posting pictures of kittens every day, cute, but not terribly interesting.  I use it to keep in touch with my kids and bore people with endless pictures of cars and their history.  Facebook isn't automatically bad because some people use it badly.

Hi, I am not familiar, is it (Christianity) censored  as in not allowed at all or is it persecuted as in attacked and or denied? 

It is nothing of the sort. I freely post Bible verses and speak my thoughts on how I love Jesus with no issues what so ever.  You get people who violate the terms of service, then when they get removed for doing so they cry persecution. That is what is going on.

1) Yes I am

2) No idea

I joined Facebook in 2009 when our daughter went to Japan for a year, and found it an excellent way to keep in touch with her. Since then I've sought out old university friends and a few other people from my past - people I was barely keeping in contact with via Christmas cards, but now feel much closer to. More recently, we've used it to organise social events - it's possible to have a 'group conversation' which is less clumsy than email. Our last church used it extensively to disseminate information about special services etc. Since we moved house, the friends we left behind have greatly appreciated seeing our news on a regular basis.

Best of all, now that our daughter lives 200 miles away, is that I don't have to keep calling her to check on her welfare. If she's posting on Facebook, then I know she's alive and well without invading her privacy (but yes, we do have proper phone conversations as well from time to time!)

Facebook, like other social media, is what you make of it. It's a tool that can be used well, or badly. Only 'friend' people you already know. Use the privacy settings intelligently. 'Hide' the posts and people that irritate you. It's common sense, really.

Wow. You people got some judgmental issue concerning Facebook. I use it to talk to my family. Most of which are out of state. I also use it to check the school events, local events and small town happenings such as what time the swimming pool will open. Our church is  on FB. It gets church info to the members and know about anyone in need of prayer. Or any other church info that is needed. FB is like anything else. It is all in the way you use it. Sure if you want to post embarrassing photos of yourself, it will come back to bite you. But FB does not make you post embarrassing photos. That is all up to you. 

And I bet nothing I said is going to make any difference to anyone here. Your all just going go back and spout off how evil FB is when I am done. 😵

While I understand the spirit of your post I would perhaps try a different tact. . .

The people who are answering "Facebook Evil," will not be mollified by people who use it in a positive way because their mind is already made up.  What needs to be done is point out the complete hypocrisy of their position.  While condemning Facebook, these same people are using the Internet which is the biggest source of pornography delivery that the world has ever known.  Kind of a blatant disconnect there . . .

No Facebook for me so far.   Several times I've been a bit tempted to sign up only for some social groups and to be more informed about local events, but each time I'm reminded by family members of the drama and similarities to middle school social games.  In each case, the stress and drama seems to exceed the value.
