  • 2. Introduction
    A social networking service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on building of social networks or social relations among people, who share interests and/or activities.
    A social network service essentially consists of a representation of each user (often a profile), his/her social links, and a variety of additional services.
    Most social network services are web based and provide means for users to interact over the internet, such as e-mail and instant messaging.
  • 3. History
    Efforts to support social networks via computer-mediated communication were made in many early online services, including Usenet, ARPANET, LISTSERV, and bulletin board services (BBS).
    Social networking on the World Wide Web began in the form of generalized online communities such as (1995),Geocities (1994) and (1995).
    These early communities focused on bringing people together to interact with each other through chat rooms, and encouraged users to share personal information and ideas via personal web pages.
    Facebook, launched in 2004, has since then become the largest social networking site in the world.
  • 4. Typical Structure
    Users create profiles containing various information about themselves like uploading pictures of themselves to their profiles, post blog entries for others to read and search for other users with similar interests. In addition, user profiles often have a section dedicated to comments from friends and other users.
    In recent years, it has also become common for a wide variety of organizations to create profiles to advertise products and services.
    Additional Features
    Some social networks have additional features, such as the ability to create groups that share common interests or affiliations, upload or stream live videos, and hold discussions in forums
    Lately, mobile social networking has become popular. In most mobile communities, mobile phone users can now create their own profiles, make friends, participate in chat rooms, create chat rooms, share photos, videos and blogs by using their mobile phone.
  • 5. Issues
    On large social networking services, there have been growing concerns about users giving out too much personal information.
    In addition, there is a perceived privacy threat in relation to placing too much personal information in the hands of large corporations or governmental bodies, allowing a profile to be produced on an individual's behaviour on which decisions, detrimental to an individual, may be taken.
    Furthermore, there is an issue over the control of data—information that was altered or removed by the user may in fact be retained and/or passed to 3rd parties who may use them for spamming purposes.
  • 6. Notifications on websites
    There has been a trend for social networking sites to send out only 'positive' notifications to users. For example sites such as Bebo, Facebook, and Myspace will not send notifications to users when they are removed from a person's friends list
    This allows users to clear undesirables from their list extremely easily and often without confrontation since a user will rarely notice if one person disappears from their friends list.
  • 7. Access to information
    Many social networking services, such as Facebook, provide the user with a choice of who can view their profile. This prevents unauthorized user(s) from accessing their information. Teens try to create a structural barrier between their private life and their parents.
    To edit information on a certain social networking service account, the social networking sites require you to login or provide a password. This prevents unauthorized user(s) from adding, changing, or removing personal information, pictures, and/or other data.
  • 8. Potential for misuse
    The relative freedom afforded by social networking services has caused concern regarding the potential of its misuse by individual patrons.
    In October 2006, a fake Myspace profile created in the name of Josh Evans by Lori Janine Drew led to the suicide of Megan Meier.The event incited global concern regarding the use of social networking services for bullying purposes
  • 9. Use of social network websites in investigations
    Social network services are increasingly being used in legal and criminal investigations.
    Information posted on sites such as MySpace, Orkut and Facebook has been used by police and university officials to prosecute users of said sites.
     In some situations, content posted on MySpace has been used in court to determine an appropriate sentence based on a defendant's attitude.

  • 13. Dating Applications
    Many social networks provide an online environment for people to communicate and exchange personal information for dating purposes
    One time date, short-term relationships, and long-term relationships
    Most of these social networks, just like online dating services, require users to give out certain pieces of information

     Social networks do not necessarily have to be for dating; many users simply use it for keeping in touch with friends, and colleagues

  • 15. Medical Applications
    Social networks are beginning to be adopted by healthcare professionals as a means to manage institutional knowledge, disseminate peer to peer knowledge and to highlight individual physicians and institutions
    The advantage of using a dedicated medical social networking site is that all the members are screened against the state licensing board list of practitioners
    The role of social networks is especially of interest to pharmaceutical companies who spend approximately "32 percent of their marketing dollars" attempting to influence the opinion leaders of social networks
