What is social networking?

Friday, August 15, 2008 View Comments Comments (0)
If you have a teen in your house, you probably don't need us to tell you:  online social networking is big these days.  Among the most well-known names, Facebook has 115,000,000 registered users, while MySpace has 110,000,000.  Generally, online social networking is conducted via a website that allows individuals to create their own public or semi-public profile within the particular online community, to create a list of users with whom they share a connection (in some cases by invitation only), and to participate in the community based on their list of connections.
 
In addition to the general networks that are so popular among teens, there are also communities based on music, movies, travel, crafts, business interests, etc.  And there are of course communities that would be considered "adult" sites.
 
We probably don't need to tell you this either:  not unlike in the real world, social networking comes with cautions.  People can make claims that they are someone they aren't.  As a general rule, if you meet a "stranger" in a community, always use caution and common sense.  If something seems "amiss," you're probably right.
