					Social Networking, The Pros and Cons of Social Networks
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.
THE PROS

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 a future love interest.
These are just a few of the reasons why social networking is getting a
lot of attention lately -- it makes life more exciting for many people.
THE CONS

However, it would be best to make sure that safety and security are the
topmost concerns of the social networking site that you currently use.
This is because social networking sites require or give you the option to
provide personal information such as your name, location, and email
address. Unfortunately some people can take this as an opportunity for
identity theft. They can copy your information and pretend to be "you"
when engaging in illegal activities. Bad news! So be cautious with what
you enter into an online networking site.
You could fall into the trap of someone who pretends to be somebody else.
For example, they might offer you a job or want to meet up with you just
to get your money. This can lead to cyberstalking, where the stalker uses
electronic media such as the Internet to pursue or harass you.
THE CONCLUSION

So take your time and be careful in choosing who to trust so you can
hopefully avoid this sort of unpleasant thing happening to you. Apart
from that, social networking is great thing.
