Social Networking Sites

Today we are enriched with various technology all around,in which Internet is the most common thing. Today we do 90% of our work with internet,from the shopping to the payment of bills,giving interviews and talking to our loved ones,all is done through internet.It has become a part and parcel of pour life.Various social networking websites such as Facebook,Twitter and Gmail have eased our work,It can be useful for our official work as well as is for entertainment purpose. Social networking sites have paved the way for easier communication to your friends, family, or colleagues. One example is that instead of meeting in a certain place, we and our classmates can discuss a school activity by having a conference in a certain site that we are all members of and thus saving our time and effort. Virtual communities are also formed, which are composed of people connected together by common interests, purpose, and goal. People of different races also get to mingle with each other in just a few clicks.
Social networking websites are a great way of keeping in touch with family and friends.
Besides all these boons these social networking sites are disadvantageous too.These sites require an option 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 our information and consequently leads to many illegal activities.we could fall into the trap of someone who pretends to be somebody else. For example, they might offer a job or want to meet up with us just to get the money. This can lead to cyber-stalking, where the stalker uses electronic media such as the Internet to pursue or harass us,there is also the chance of people's profiles being hacked or identities being stolen.
The biggest downside of social networking websites is that children are tempting towards it and thus they spends most of the time in Facebook and as a result they are deviated against studies and other physical activities which are must at this tender age.
So it is important but should be used in a limit and under the proper guidance.
