What is Social Networking? :
Social Network is a website on the Internet that brings people together, to talk, share ideas and interests, or make new friends.
Easy to Understand:
Social Networking has become very popular during the past few years, but it can still be very difficult to understand for someone new to social networking. It’s not that much difficult to understand, once signed onto a social network, having answered a few basic profile questions, it is easy to sit back and wonder what you are supposed to do next. This technology is easy to understand and use. So it can be access by anyone. (E.g. In today’s world, there is no doubt a five year old kid has its face book account)… we are living in a social world. We need to learn, how to be effective collaborators in this world, how to interact with people around us, how to be engaged, informed twenty-first-century citizens.
While there are risks inherent in online social networking, there are also many potential benefits.If you use this technology to bring out good things in life would benefit.
Benefits of Social Networking:
A social networking site can be a good way to make connections with people with similar interests and goals. It can provide opportunities for new relationships as well as strengthening existing relationships, whether your kids’, friends are close to home or across the world. This, meeting people and staying connected with classmates and friends and relations are the major benefit of social networking sites.
Keeping in contact with family through the phone or even over email presents a challenge. Instead, social networking sites allow the individual to share their day to day life in a secure but public forum, which family can watch and experience. Facebook, for example, allows people to share events, images, and thoughts in real time, during the course of any day. Family and friends can then experience all the things that someone does, and comment on them. Then, they share in the experience, rather than just being “informed” about them during weekly phone calls.
Social networking sites also offer event listings, group profiles and fan pages that can communicate the pulse of a campus culture. It’s important to be vigilant when your kids are getting involved in online social networking, but it’s also good to encourage positive relationships through various avenues, including the Internet.
These connections can help one with a variety of things such as:
- World Wide Connectivity
- Commonality of interest
- Professional Networking
- Real time information Sharing
- Free Advertising
- Creating more engaging learning experiences
- Staying informed about the world
How to Stay Safe:
Be careful what you share online: when you choose a profile picture for a social networking website like Facebook or Twitter; avoid photos that could give strangers clues about where you live. Check your privacy settings regularly. Think about what should be shared in public and what shouldn’t.
Customize privacy options: Social networking sites increasingly give users more control over their own privacy settings. Don’t assume you have to take whatever default settings the site gives you. Check out the settings, configuration and privacy sections to see what options you have to limit who and what groups can see various aspects of your personal information. Facebook probably has some of the broadest privacy options, giving you control where no one, friends, friends and networks, or everyone can see basic info, personal info, photos, friends and postings.
Never share or reveal your passwords: Use strong passwords that are hard for others to guess, using a mix of letters and numbers. Keep passwords to yourself and change them regularly.
Don’t trust that a message really is from whom it says it’s from: Hackers can break into accounts and send message that look like they’re from your friends, but aren’t. If you suspect that a message is fraudulent, just contact your friend to find out.
Be selective about who you accept as a friend on a social network: Identity thieves might create fake profiles in order to get information from you.
Avoid accidentally sharing personal details: Don’t put the status and answering the questions like “Away for the weekend… Returning on Monday”, what are you doing right now? Features in Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networking sites make it easy to let details slip you wouldn’t otherwise tell friends or strangers. Be aware of what information you put out there which others might use for immoral purposes.
Search yourself it is a good idea to search your name on Google and check out your profile as others see it on social networking sites: Understand where you show up and what information is available about you, and then adjust your profile, settings and habits appropriately. Don’t worry, it’s not useless if you only search your own name once a month or so. If you unexpectedly see your name in locations you don’t frequent, it could give you a heads up someone else is using your identity online. Set up a Google alert with your name, which emails you when Google finds your name on sites.
