Effects of social networking

  1. 1. By VAIBHAV JAIN C11
  2. 2. What is Social network? Social Networks is defined as „social space‟ for people who want to expose themselves among others and staying connected with each other. What is Social Media? The best way to define social media is to break it down. Media is an instrument on communication, like a newspaper or a radio, so social media would be a social instrument of communication. Social media is media for social interaction, using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques. Social media uses web-based technologies to turn communication into interactive dialogues.
  3. 3. Social Bookmarking. (Del.icio.us, Blinklist, Simpy) Interact by tagging websites and searching through websites bookmarked by other people.  Social News. (Digg, Propeller, Reddit) Interact by voting for articles and commenting on them.  Social Networking. (Facebook, Hi5, Last.FM) Interact by adding friends, commenting on profiles, joining groups and having discussions.  Social Photo and Video Sharing. (YouTube, Flickr) Interact by sharing photos or videos and commenting on user submissions.  Wikis. (Wikipedia, Wikia) Interact by adding articles and editing existing articles.  And these websites are not the only social media websites. Any website that invites you to interact with the site and with other visitors falls into the definition of social media. 

  7. 7. Why shifting? "The key is that there are fewer adults, fewer parents and just simply less complexity," said Amanda Lenhart of the Pew Research Center, one of the study's authors. "They still have their Facebook profiles, but they spend less time on them and move to places like Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr." 94 % of teens who are social media users have a profile on Facebook 26 – 30% percent of teen social media users were on Twitter. That's more than double the figure in 2011 of 12 percent. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/poll-teens-migrating-twitter

  12. 12. “parents need to understand that social networking sites can be a source of many threats from potentially harmful content to various shady characters who might show unhealthy interest in their children.”  Nothing truly disappears completely from the internet, even SnapChats – and teens are learning this: More than half of online teens (57%) say they have decided not to post something online because they were concerned it would reflect badly on them in the future.
  13. 13. Also, just be on the look out for: sexting, cyberbullying, and other forms of online harassment. If you are a parent: 1. Do you know what your kids are posting? (Have ground rules?) 2. Do you have a caring adult or two or twenty who let you know if they see any inappropriate or risky posts? 3. Do you check their friends/followers/circles? 4. Do you talk regularly about how your son/daughter feels about their social media? (Bullying? Sad? Affirmed? Popular? Left-out? Meh?) 5. Do not be afraid to look for support and assistance
