What is really a Social Network?

A social networking site is where people from around the globe can instantly access and connect with each other with just one site. One can actually write and send messages, chat at the same time surf and post comments on the same site

It is very hot with High school and College students because they can instantly make friends and connect with them.

They can upload photos personally taken and customize profiles that suits them and their personality.

So, why does it Click?

For some reason, aside from socializing and connecting, it has expanded it features to games, groups, fan pages, chats, and joining of other networks that are within the locality or internationally made.

10. Lastly, ITS IN!!!

WELL, When the world announced that the newest fad is Social Networking Site, Naturally, What's In is What's Hot. People attaches and tries to update everytime, so with this in mind, because it was said so, people used it...

Networking is an essential part of building wealth!

What is IN may not be totally GOOD

Yes, a lot have been made in these social networking site and for some, it brought them the bad news they don't actually need. I could list a few and maybe you could add some more for me..

1. Separation - for some jealousy becomes their company. Some couples would separate just because the other partner is jealous of what he/she saw in the site. These could cause chaos and soon separation. Or for some couples, its good cause they found out that their partners were actually cheating on them. Good if that's is the case, how about the others?

2. Suicide - some, worse with teenagers, because they associate everything they see here with themselves, they would soon become depressed especially if they do not have and get what they saw in here.

3. Socializing - but I'm referring to over socializing and that is when some people have already been married or in a relationship and see these sites as one source to have another one.

I may have not included other reasons but as of the moment, that is what I can think of. Maybe I can add soon.
