    How Safe is Social Networking? - Social Networking

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    If you've used the Internet or watched TV recently, you probably at least know of a social networking site or two. In general, there are three different types of social networking sites, though in almost all ways even these sites are similar to each other.

    Social networking sites for daters. A good portion of social networking sites have one mission in mind: help their users find mates and dates. Match.com and eHarmony (pictured) are two highly well-known examples of these types of social networking sites.

    Here, users fill out a profile (and usually, accompanying questionnaire) which helps match them up to others. Generally, users of the site can also shop around for mates by browsing the profiles of others. Features such as online messages and a site-based email service are also commonly present on social networking sites for daters.

    Social networking sites for professionals. Social sites like LinkedIn (pictured) are geared mainly toward working professionals who want to maintain business contacts. Social networking sites for professionals are made to connect people in similar jobs, and to help employers and employees find each other easily. Profiles on these sites often include resume information, work history and other skill-based data.

    Social networking sites for all. Standard social networking sites, whose only real emphasis is to help people find each other in any capacity, are often held up as the standard of social sites. Facebook and MySpace are highly popular social networking sites, but there are many others out there.

    These sites often feature profile space for pictures, blogs and comments from friends as well as built-in communication and search features to help people find each other. These classic social networking sites set the tone (and the bar) for all the other types of social sites on the Internet.
