• Technology has not only mediated communication in
  countless ways but … the very ways we communicate – and
  even the ways we talk and think about communication –
  are changing as a result.
• Social networking services are changing the ways in which
  people use and engage with the Internet and with each
  other. Young people, particularly, are quick to use the new
  technology in ways that increasingly blur the boundaries
  between online and offline activities.
• Social networking services can be broadly defined as
  Internet – or mobile-device-based social spaces designed to
  facilitate communication, collaboration and content sharing
  across networks of contacts.
• Social networking services allow users to manage, build and
  represent their social networks online.
