  7. 7. Playground for Cyber Predators?<br />In 2009, Myspace identified 90,000 sex offenders with profiles on the site (“ProCon.org”).<br />Aside from this fact, online predators have the ability to hack into business servers and steal billions of dollars using basic personal information (Hansen 305-328). <br />
  8. 8. Cyber Bullying<br />Cyber bullying is the use of social networking sites to humiliate or threaten others (Billitteri 385-408).<br />There are numerous cases in which children have committed suicide because of cyber bullying.<br />Cyber bullying effects all ages and genders. <br />
  9. 9. Health Issues<br />Social networking could be unhealthy for both the mind and body.<br />It could lead to sleep deprivation and possibly attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (Mackey).<br />The cyber world is also extremely addicting for all ages. <br />http://freethoughtfortwayne.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sleep-deprivation1.jpg<br />
  10. 10. Facts<br />Carlos Salgado stole over 100,000 credit card numbers by hacking into an online database using personal information found on profiles (Hansen 305-328).<br />Phoebe Prince, a young girl, hanged herself after being cyber bullied for over three months (“ABC News”).<br />http://www.yorkblog.com/biz/img/Stealing%2004.jpg<br />
  11. 11. Conclusion<br />Knowing the potential dangers of social networking, will people refrain from usage of these harmful sites? <br />Very few are aware of the dangers of the cyber world and are constantly at risk everyday. <br />In the end, social networking is dangerous because it attracts predators, could lead to cyber bullying and causes health problems. <br />
