Social networking has become increasingly popular nowadays as there are a lot of sites that offer this service. MySpace and Friendster are two of the most popular sites that aim to build communities of people who share common interests and activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others.
A social networking site is like a virtual meeting place where people can hang out and discuss different topics. Anything under the sun, in fact. Some use these networking sites to promote their blogs, to post bulletins and updates or to use them as a bridge to the future love interest.
These are just some of the reasons why social networking is getting a lot of attention lately -. It makes life more interesting for people
However, it would be best to ensure that safety and security are the topmost concerns of social networking sites you use. This is because social networking sites need or give you the ability to provide personal information such as name, location, and email address. Unfortunately, some people can take this as an opportunity for identity theft. They can copy the information and pretending to be “you” when engaging in illegal activities. Bad news! So be careful with what you enter into online networking sites.
You may fall into the trap of someone who pretends to be someone else. For example, they might offer you a job or want to meet you just to get your money. This can lead to cyberstalking where Stalker uses electronic media like the Internet to pursue or harass you.
So take your time and be careful in choosing who to trust so you can hopefully avoid such an unpleasant thing to happen to you. Apart from that, social networking is a great thing.
