Social Networking told from both sides. It includes a summary, the good and the bad of Social Networking.

Summary of Social Networking

Social Networking is used to connect people who find each other interesting. Twitter technically isn't a Social Networking site due to the fact that you can follow someone and receive their feeds without them accepting you. If they had to accept you in order your the both of you to receive each others feeds, that would make it Social Networking. Besides that main point, Twitter shows how popular somebody is in the virtual and possibly physical realm. Other forms of Social Networking would be Facebook and MySpace.

The Good Side of Social Networking

The good things about Social Networking is bringing people together, whether it be friends or family. It helps people keep in touch and allows people to know what they're doing and where they are at. It also brings people closer and allows one to see how another feels towards something. There are all these neat features with Social Networking. With Twitter, you can follow celebrities and know what they're doing or their opinion on something without even talking to them. On Facebook, you can like people's status's which also shows that you support it. It's also possible to make money through Social Networks!

The Bad Side of Social Networking

Just like everything, there is a downside to Social Networking. One of the many downsides would be pedophiles. Another would be an explicit of porn through the images in an album. It'll be easier to track somebody down, stalk them, etc. Another bad thing is killing your social life! Many people get sucked into these Social Networks and think they have to use technology no matter what. It's also possible that it can kill your self-confidence/esteem.
