JONESBORO< AR (KAIT) - It started off as a way for people to communicate and keep in touch but if there's one thing all Facebook users know, there are always the select few who share a little too much.

 "We don't need to know. It's used to connect with people and you don't need tell your personal business, nobody needs to know that," said Facebook User Kaela Belcher.

 For many of the billions of users on Facebook every day, many of them feel there is a line you just shouldn't cross.

 "Too much is being said and too much is being revealed," said Facebook User Bethany Gunn.

 What about the heated arguments that Facebook is so commonly known for? Just as quickly as the computer is turned on, the user is turned off.

 "If you're going to rant, do it at home, don't do it on facebook. Everybody has their own different opinions and you can offend someone else by what you say," said Facebook User Latoria Jackson.

For one of the local residents I spoke to, she even admitted to being guilty herself sometimes.Posting things she probably would question if it showed up on her newsfeed.

 "Yes I have before and I'm not proud of it. I feel like we get caught up in that trap because society is like that," said Belcher.
