  2. 2. ”Impact of the social networks” ABSTRACT Social networks have become in a few years, in a global phenomenon; have been caused great impact on society that today are considered so important that almost all companies and institutions have profiles on social media to get in touch with customers or users, based on your suggestions, reviews and publishing news. Which is why this article aims to show a useful overview of social media and it’s impact on society. Whit this pour pose, we show throughout this section the different elements, concepts and uses of social networking. Accordingly to the social networking therm, we are also explaining the evolution of this last one, it’s influence on communication, the advantages and disadvantages of social networks, also their evolution and features; the same way we exemplify and describe social networks taking as the most popular as reference point. KEYWORDS: Impact, Addiction, Social Networks
  3. 3. ”Impact of the social networks” INTRODUCTION Social networking is a phenomenon arising from the emergence and exponential growth of the Web 2.0 , reaching all players in the Internet, and in many cases causing different types of crisis. Throughout the present article seeks to give an overview of the social networks. As do other technological innovations , the use of Facebook , Twitter , Youtube, Google+ , Skipe , MySpace, etc . , Transform lifestyles , practices change and create new vocabulary, but this occurs at a rate as accelerated to confusion and lack of usability. Many of the studies carried out today address issues related to identity, privacy or use by adolescents. For the same reasons , one of the problems that said advocates responsible use of social networking is that through them , we are exposed to information theft . Our data are shared and surfing the net , and at the same time, information of all kinds invade our computers without our being able to discriminate their content. This is particularly worrying in the case of minors , whose privacy is compromised through the misuse of the network. Therefore, the history of social networking will be addressed , what is web 2.0 ? , The current status of the same - worldwide, Latin America , and in our country , and special emphasis will be on demonstrating its influence on education.
  4. 4. ”Impact of the social networks” METHODS AND MATERIALS The methodology used in this study is based on the review of the literature, which is to "detect, obtain and consult the literature and other materials that are useful for the purposes of the study, where you have to extract and compile the relevant and necessary information concerning our research problem" (Hernández Sampieri, Fernández Collado, & Baptista Lucio2007) in order to build a conceptual framework related to the topic of social networking and the impact caused by the same, using content analysis as "technical collection, classification and analysis of the information contained in communications expressed orally or in writing by a process objective, systematic and quantitative" in addition. Methodological procedure performed In the research sample size is presented without rules and depends on what one search (M. Patton, 1990), in this sense it is establishing a sample of theoretical character, negotiating between the extension and the depth. We used an intentional sample of theoretical, taking into consideration the contributions of (Glaser & a., 1967) led to the emergence of the theory, since "only this sampling maximizes the advantages of the simultaneity of case selection, data collection and analysis thereof".
  5. 5. ”Impact of the social networks” History of social networks Although it costs believe it, given the incredible popularity of which are currently only a few years ago terms such as Facebook, Twitter or Tuenti were absolutely unknown by the general public, and rather retreat a few artists, students of Harvard or the scene rock bands "Indie" de Los Ángeles. In a few years how social networks have become a global phenomenon, breaking through cultural barriers, language, geographic or economic is almost unprecedented in the history of innovation. Introduction to Web 2.0 The term Web 2.0 was born in the middle of 2004 and grew to be home of the world's leading weeklies in the Christmas of 2006. This tecno-social phenomenon became popular from his most representative applications,Wikipedia, YouTube, Flickr, WordPress, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, OhMyNews, and the oversupply of hundreds of tools trying to capture users / content generators. According to O'Reilly, principal promoter of the concept of Web 2.0, the constitutive principles of this are seven: the World Wide Web as platform of labour, the strengthening of collective intelligence, databases management as core competence, the end of the cycle of updates for versions of the software, along with the pursuit of simplicity lightweight programming modelsnot limited to a single device software and the enriching experience of the users. In this new Web digital network is no longer a simple showcase of multimedia content to become an open, platform built on an architecture based on the participation of the users. Around the Web 2.0 concept spin a series of terminos-satelite to feed back their evolution. Social software, architecture of participation, content generated
  6. 6. ”Impact of the social networks” by the user, rich Internet applications, labels, syndication of content and social networks, are only some in the long list of concepts that enrich this phenomenon. There is a controversy about the importance and relevance of the term Web 2.0, to the point of being challenged by many actors of the own environment. The authors of this book believe that Web 2.0 is more appropriate to describe the new type of key web applications and the current phase in which is located the network created by Berners-Lee. (Cobo Romaní & Pardo Kuklinski, 2007) Current status of social networks It is very interesting to check statistics which published various means, in which it is possible to observe the enormous impact that social networks are having on the lives of people in various fields. What's happening with social networks in the world? Facebook has exceeded 800 million users, Twitter has 200 million, and Google + record 62 million. The Spanish network Tuenti reached in February this year the 13 million users (Ponce, 2012). And how are positioned social networks in Latin America today? This region has proved to be the more "committed socially"; presents users who spend 7.5 hours on social networking sites in a month (comScore, 2012:1). 127 million over 15 years of Latin Americans visited a social networking site from your home or work in April 2012. Facebook has one of four minutes spent on social networks in this region, with 114.5 million visitors, which represented an increase of 37%, Twitter with 27.4 million visitors, with 10.47 Linkedin and Myspace with 5.44. Using Pinterest, Mexico is now the second of use with a 16.1%, after Brazil with a 27.8%
  7. 7. ”Impact of the social networks” And in Mexico State are social networks? The Mexican Internet Association (AMIPCI) has done on two occasions a study on social networks, the last of them has been named Digital Marketing and social networks in Mexico 2012. The survey was applied to 3,104 Mexican Internet users with different ranges of age and socio-economic levels. Only 10% of those interviewed indicated that do not use social networks, that percentage, most consider it so, since it is not interesting or are concerned about the security of your data. The majority of users is in the range of 3 to 5 years of use of social networks.  Facebook is the more access network with 90% of Mexican users registered, who are mostly aged 12 to 17.  Then there is Youtube, with 60%, and the majority at age 18 to 24 years.  Then Twitter with 56%, and aged between 12 and 17 years.  Finally Google + 37%, with most in the range of 12 to 17 years. However, as already mentioned, the dynamism in the activity of these spaces causes that all these figures will become obsolete in a matter of days. The educational use of social networks The use of the technologies of Web 2.0, taking into account the definitions set forth in this article, allows to transform traditional teaching (Santamaría González, 2006) student-centred learning. The above is related to the communicative capacity that provide Web 2.0 technologies, as well as its dominant characteristic that is the active role of the user.
  8. 8. ”Impact of the social networks” Networks contribute to the publication of information, independent learning, teamwork, communication, feedback, access to other related networks and contact with other experts, among other elements. All of this, both between students in general, as between the tandem student and teacher; which facilitates constructivist learning and collaborative learning (Gomez, Roses, & Farias, 2012). In this sense, there are two trends in the use of social networks within education, on the one hand, the use of the available networks, and on the other hand, specialized education and research networking. However, before defining what alternative you can support the teacher in some activity, it is important to establish clearly what are the objectives of teaching that you want to achieve, because even though it has already been established that social networks are a powerful tool, it would be a mistake thinking that you can solve any teaching situation automatically. Thus, in relation to the educational use of networks in General, include the following, as part of many applications, whose limit is the imagination and creativity of the teacher:  Institucional. This option allows a wealth on information exchange and the formation of communities of various kinds; between groups of the same subject, between teachers in the same Department, etc. In addition, they generate a sense of ownership by all involved.  Matter or subject. Enable the company to carry out the communication between teacher and students. In this way, teacher can send tasks or deadlines, publish multimedia contents which support teaching; Moreover, students can develop and deliver individual and team work, as well as consult doubts.
  9. 9. ”Impact of the social networks”  Consultants. This is a subset of the former, in which the objective specifically adds to the solution of questions and problems that students with class or related tasks and assigned work.  News. Is also a subset of those listed, as it allows the dissemination of messages by the teacher. The activities are published for students, dates of delivery of the work or of the following tests.  Students. This option also provides a great wealth, since it promotes autonomy, the team collaboration between them, the group study and the solution of tasks. Specialized social networks Regarding the creation of specialized social networks, describes some of the various sites oriented to education and research that exist: Educational The description of each site is based on that provided on their main pages. : Offers teachers and students a safe place to collaborate, share content and educational applications, discussions and notifications. They are intended help teachers to harness the potential of social media to personalize the classroom for each student. Currently has 14, 000,000 from students and teachers. : Is a free network, whose aim is the act as point of contact between teachers and people interested in teaching and learning through social networks.
  10. 10. ”Impact of the social networks” : Offers a solution on demand for the construction of social networks academic private, in which students and teachers can connect to collaborate and learn. Research : Is a platform for scholars, in order to promote the publication of research papers. Currently has 1, 881,844 researchers. : Is a free bibliographic Manager and academic social network that facilitates the Organization of research work, as well as online collaboration with others, in addition to the review of related research. 2, 000,000 users reported on 1 November 2012. General Google + circles : As Vice President of engineering for Google, this solution came to wonder "What do people?", in real life these are constantly selected those social circles that want to share their information. Google + does this through the circles in G +. In this way the user can create them and share what you want with them (Olcina, 2011). This applies to education, since it facilitates that the teacher can generate a circle with each of its student groups and leave separately their personal information. Grou.PS : Is a platform that allows you to create a variety of social networks, including online games, e-learning classrooms, fan clubs and societies of former University students, among others. At the November 15th they have 12, 061,647 members. Safety in the use of social networks, some aspects to consider are: 1. Read the usage and privacy policies previously. 2. Analyze the relevance of the information before publishing it. 3. Assess which information you want to share and with whom.
  11. 11. ”Impact of the social networks” 4. Control the list of contacts, ensuring that persons that are added are reliable. 5. Control applications that are added to the network, since they involve continuously vulnerability for the account and its users. 6.Use passwords to prevent personation. 7. Seek technical assistance if you have questions about the behavior of the site. Definition and classification of social networks What is a social network? There are multiple definitions and theories about what are and what are not social networks, but there is little consensus yet on them. The vast majority of authors agree that a social network is: "a Web site whose purpose is to allow the users to interact, communicate, share and create communities", or as a tool of "democratization of information that transforms people in receivers and content producers". In 2007, an article was published in the Journal of Computer Mediated Communication1 that throwing interesting information about the phenomenon of social networks on the Internet. Such labour defined social networks as: "(servicios dentro de las webs que permiten ael usuario 1) (build a public or semi-public profile within a limited system, (2) articulate a list of other users that share a connection and 3) view and track your list of contacts and developed by other users within the system." The nature and nomenclature of these connections usually vary from a social network to another". 1 M.Bold, Danah y B. Ellison Nicole, “Social Network Sites: Definition, history and scholarship”, Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, 2007
  12. 12. ”Impact of the social networks” In Spain, the National Institute of communication technologies (INTECO) in his "A study about data privacy and the security of information in social networks online", the year 2009, defines them as "services provided via the Internet that allow users to create a public profile, which capture personal data and information about yourselfproviding tools that allow you to interact with other users related or not to the published profile". Wikipedia, one of the most consulted by users media, defines them as: "social structures composed of groups of people, which are connected by one or more types of relationships, such as friendship, kinship, common interests or share knowledge". According to the weekly The Economist2 "the greatest contribution of social networks has been providing a place in the world for a humanity in the solitude of a cold and technological world. Another major contribution is to have them transformed into superb tools for mass communication." Types of social networks Direct social networks Direct social networks are those whose services provided via the Internet in which there is a collaboration between groups of people who share interests in common and that, interacting each other on equal terms, they can control the information you share. Users of such networks social create profiles through which to manage your personal information and relationship with other users. Access to the information contained in the profiles tends to be conditioned by the degree of privacy that such users established for them. 2 “A world of connections. A special report on social networking”. The Economist, 30 de enero de 2010.
  13. 13. ”Impact of the social networks” Direct social networks can be classified differently depending on the approach as shown in the following table: Table 1. Categories of direct social networks on the basis of the approach According to purpose According to operation mode According to degree of openness According to level of integration Leisure Content Public Vertical integration Professional use Based on profiles: personal/professional Private Horizontal integration Microblogging Indirect social networks Social networks are indirect those whose services provided through Internet users who do not have a visible profile for all have to exist an individual or group which controls and directs the information or discussions around a particular topic. It is particularly important to clarify that this particular type of social networking are the precursors of the most recent direct social networks developed within the new framework of the 2.0 network. The indirect social networks can be classified into forums and blogs:  Forums. Services provided through Internet are conceived, initially for use by experts within an area of specific knowledge or as a tool for meeting information. They carry out exchanges of information, ratings and opinions to exist a degree of directionality to the extent that you can respond to a question or comment by another user.
  14. 14. ”Impact of the social networks”  Blogs. They are services provided through Internet which usually have a high degree of update and where there is often a chronological compilation of one or more authors. The inclusion of links in the annotations is common and they are usually managed by the same author who creates where plasma aspects that, at a personal level, considers relevant or of interest. Major social networks Since the commissioning of social networks in 1995 when Randy Conrads created the web site "" to keep in contact to former Institute fellow, has been a big boom that has resulted in one rapid growth in both the number of social networks in Internet and the functionalities and applications made available to users in the same. Due to the growing interest aroused by social networks circulating on the net many studies, articles and reports. However there is a body or entity that engages in the study of this phenomenon globally. In each country there are various public and private organizations that have developed their own research using its own methodology so the data that are published in some cases are not coincidental. Due to the growing interest aroused in the public social networks flows through the network a bulky and, increasingly, increasing volume of data around the subject. The speed with which new data are published on the Web, in relation to social networks, so that data is out of date quickly. It is enough to cite as examples that every minute are uploaded to YouTube 35 hours of recording or Facebook, which in 2004 had a million users, currently has more than 500 million members. If it were a country, it would be the fourth most populous in the world.3 3 Socialnomics, por Erik Qualman, 2009.
  15. 15. ”Impact of the social networks” The approach of this work has been the selection of the most current data from different sources, as well as data published by the companies themselves. The last data update has been done at the end of May 2011. Major social networks in the world and their penetration The report "Social Media arround the World" between December 2009 and January 2010, by the company Belgian consulting firm InSites Consulting in seven regions of the world, where we included 14 countries (Belgium, Netherlands, England, Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Germany, Romania, United States, Brazil, Australia, Russia and China), reveals that 72% of Internet users belongs to a social network at leastwhich means that there are 940 million users around the world. Sending messages, conversations in the home page (in the function called wall) and the incorporation into pages or groups, are activities in social networks more highlighted by the users. The average number of social networks used by users is two. The following chart shows a ratio of 10 social networks most used by users in 14 countries included in the report of InSites. It's direct social networks based on both personal and professional profiles. The social network more known in the world with 51% of Internet users is a direct social network of personal profile and it is used preferentially in English-speaking countries. According to data published by Nielsen4 in Spain, the percentage of users that use the social network more known in the world would be six percentage points above the global average, showing the study of InSites. 4 “Social Networks/Blogs Now Account for One in Every Four and a Half Minutes Online”. Nielsen, 2010.
  16. 16. ”Impact of the social networks” Figure 1. 10 the world's most widely used social networks. Source: Homemade learn from data published in "Social Media arround the world". InSites Consulting, 2010 According to data published by Nielsen, Brazil leads the world ranking of active users of social networks with a 86%, followed by 78% of Italy. Spain occupies a prominent third position, which remains very much in line with the second being just one percentage point of difference (77%). In Japan, United States, United Kingdom, France and Australia the percentage of active users of social networks is between 70% and 75%. In Germany is accounted for 63%, while in Switzerland the figure will reach 59%. The example of Orkut in Brazil is paradigmatic of the success of social networks that do not use English as primary language. So much so that, this country has the highest percentage of active users of social networks due to the creation of a direct social network profile that uses the Portuguese against the English as primary language.
  17. 17. ”Impact of the social networks” What are the major networks? Among the set of existing social networks, some are by the volume of users who reached and the importance as a means of communication that enable different public opinion formation. Twitter Figure 2. Twitter. Micro-bloggingtool, allows users to publish messages (of up to 140 characters) to express their views on the topics of your choice. Within the network, each user can choose to "follow" other users, i.e., track their publications on Twitter. Whenever a particular user makes a publication, the entire base of people who have chosen to follow him they have access to that message, which creates a cross network forming of opinion which, today, reaches hundreds of millions of users around the world. Facebook Figure 3. Facebook.
  18. 18. ”Impact of the social networks” The largest and most important social network today, Facebook includes other different websites. Through this, it is possible to mount your fan base (such as Twitter) and publications without character limit. This is also compounded the ability to add photos, videos and using different applications (of games to banking systems). In addition to comment publications by third parties, Facebook allows that users can click on buttons called "I like it" to indicate that a user was identified with said content/such a brand. All of their clicks, comments and publications are registered in its own page, and feed it with content regarding everything that the user did, what you liked or didn't like since it began to use the network. YouTube Figure 4. YouTube. Network exclusively dedicated to videos, which enables users to perform loads (publication), view and make downloads of videos free of charge. Youtube is currently the largest existing in the world, with extracts from films, videotrailers and countless personal footage above absolutely everything. Flickr
  19. 19. ”Impact of the social networks” Figure 5. Flickr. Like YouTube, Flickr also is a file-sharing network, which is only of photos. Blogs Figure 6. Blogs. Blogs are not, by themselves, a social network structured and owned by a company. On the other hand, they are a concept that allows all user can assemble their own means of information to zero cost (or price that pays for a connection web), publish what you want, and make its publications available in the network. According to the relevance of the blog and the "blogger", reached audience may be similar to that of large and traditional means of information.
  20. 20. ”Impact of the social networks” RESULTS From the analyzed literature, the following results were obtained: Statistics of volume of users of Facebook and social networks in the world. Analysis of the volume of users of Facebook and other social networks like twitter, Tuenti, MySpace, Hi5, Netlog, Linketing, Orkut, Xing, Ning or Hyves for being the most popular. Based on a study carried out in countries of five continents.

  21. 21. ”Impact of the social networks”  Half of the users does not have access to social networks from their jobs in the company. The world's best-known social networks: In general Facebook is the most popular social network globally, 85% of Internet users know about Facebook, being also the most known in all countries or regions of the world, being less well known in Asia with 40% of users it is known. On the contrary, in South America and Australia nearly a 95% of users called Facebook. After Facebook most popular social networks are in this order: Figure 4.The world's best-known social networks. These data are averages around the world, logically there are areas or countries in which users familiar with nets or other, it is the case of Xing is much more well known in Asia, reaching an average of popularity of 20% which is well above the world average. 85 75 65 30 22 20 20 5 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 Facebook MySpace Twitter Hi5 NetLog Linkein Orkut (Google) Xing, Ning, Hyves Conocimiento de las Redes Sociales por los usuarios de Internet en el mundo

In general, users do not have intention to stop using the social networks. 75% of users will continue to belong to social networks although 40% of them will not be registered in new networks. This behavior is common to all areas and countries of the world. Social networks in Mexico The Mexican Internet Association (AMIPCI) has done on two occasions a study on social networks, the last of them has been named Digital Marketing and social networks in Mexico 2012. The survey was applied to 3,104 Mexican Internet users with different ranges of age and socio-economic levels.

However, as already mentioned, the dynamism in the activity of these spaces causes that all these figures will become obsolete in a matter of days.
  24. 24. ”Impact of the social networks” Main concerns with statistical data 36% of the teenage latinoamericamos has been victim of any attack over the internet, only 11.5% goes to their parents for help, a 20.2 percent of teens reported receiving offensive material, a 15.2% suffered the theft of personal information and photos, 14% experienced phishing or identity theft, the 3.4 experienced the type of cyberbullying, the principal means by which is llevban out these harassment are e- mail (61.4%)followed by social networks like Facebook and Twitter (57.7%).
  25. 25. ”Impact of the social networks” DISCUSSION The results indicate that social networks today in day constitute one of the phenomena of greater impact in the lives of people in various fields, since99.9% of youths and adults who use the Internet do it mainly to connect and maintain communication with other people, whether they are known or not, another main trend of social media is to get new friends, long distance relationships, maintain contact with family or friends in different parts of the world. The growth in just a few years in the number of users of different social networks throughout the world has been really spectacular, Facebook and Twitter lead the Social Media movement, but other social networks like Linkedin or Google+ try to put a dent in this competitive sector. Please keep in mind the security in social networks. This will be of great impact, as it is widely known that make available private information of great importance, can be delicate, since in many of the sites that offer these services, not is quite clear the fate that may have such information. On the other hand, even though at this time the social networks have a very extensive use, is suitable to take into account that not you must wager is all for some technology, because history has shown that this is highly changing, and has already presented, sites that had a very important position, today, no longer exist. Thus, it is suggested teachers make an analysis of the situation who wish to improve and identify whether social networks are the best solution; If so, take advantage of the capabilities and coverage, so the generations of students who are now in schools, may have access to content and tools that help them to achieve their learning objectives and leaving much better prepared.
