How Safe is Social Networking?
(Page 1 of 4 )
Social networking isn’t just for teenagers, online daters or people who spend a great deal of time on the Internet. Social networking sites are extremely popular online, and they’re used by a vast variety of Internet users. Who uses social networking sites? And should we be worried about their safety?
You might be surprised by how many people you know have profiles on the popular social sites. Your co-workers, family members and children probably all have free accounts on social networking sites -- they are that ubiquitous and widely-used.
Those who use social networking find that they're a great way to interact and connect with others, and everything that's within the confines of the site seems perfectly safe and secure. But is it? Just how safe is social networking?
Whether you fully realize it or not, you're revealing a lot about yourself just in a social networking profile. If you maintain a blog or frequently write comments and provide other extras, you may be painting a very accurate picture of the person you are.
But it's okay, because you're on a social networking site, right? After all, isn't that what you're supposed to be doing? All that picture-trading, comment posting and online chatting is okay if it's in a safe social site environment...right?
