  • Definitions of Social Networking on the Web: A social network service focuses on building and reflecting of social networks or social relations among people, e.g., who share interests and/or activities. ... The interaction between a group of people who share a common interest; Using social contacts to network; Using internet's network groups (such as Facebook and Twitter) to network and communicate between consumers and businesses The process of building online communities, often accomplished both through 'groups' and 'friends lists' that allow greater interaction on websites.

Several websites, such as Facebook and MySpace are "virtual communities." Social networking-new means of communicating and sharing information between two or more individuals on an online community. sites offer people new and varied ways to communicate via the Internet, whether through their computer or mobile phone.

  • Pose the question – How old is facebook? 2004 DecemberFacebook reaches nearly 1 million active users FebruaryMark Zuckerberg and co-founders Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes and Eduardo Saverin launch Facebook from their Harvard dorm room US population is 310 million There are more than 150 million active users currently accessing Facebook through their mobile devices.

  • Facebook 's growth as an Internet social networking site has met criticism on a range of issues, especially the privacy of their users, child safety, the use of advertising scripts, data mining , and the inability to terminate accounts without first manually deleting all the content. Many companies removed their adverts from the site in 2008 because they were being displayed on the pages of controversial individuals and groups. The actual content of user's pages, groups and forums has been criticised for promoting controversial topics such as pro-anorexia and holocaust denial . There have been several issues with censorship, both on and off the site. The changes made by Facebook have been criticised, in particular the new format launched in 2008 and the changes in Facebook's Terms of Use which removed the clause detailing automatic expiry of deleted content. Facebook has also been successfully sued several times for violation of intellectual property rights
  • Facebook won't let kids have sites if they're under 13. That said, kids simply do the math to figure out what year to put so they'll seem 13 -- or older. Check your kid's computer browser history. If you see Facebook listed, assume your kid has an account. Tell your kids to think before they post. Remind them that everything can be seen by a vast, invisible audience (otherwise known as friends of friends of friends). Each family is different, but for middle school kids, it's a good idea for parents to have access to their kids' pages, at least at first, to be sure that what's being posted is appropriate. Parents can help keep their children from doing something they'll regret later. Make sure kids set their privacy settings. Privacy settings aren't foolproof, but they're important. Take the time to learn how privacy settings work on your kids' favorite sites, and teach your kids how to control their privacy. Kindness counts. Lots of sites have anonymous applications like "bathroom wall" or "honesty boxes" that allow users to tell their friends what they think of them. Rule of thumb: If your children wouldn't say it to someone's face, they shouldn't post it. Go online. If you don't have one already, get an account for yourself. See what kids can and can't do.
  • Talk about the nature of their digital world. Remind them that anyone can see what's on their pages -- even if they think no one will. Potential employers and college admissions staff often surf social networking sites. Ask your teens to think about who might see their pages and how they might interpret the posts or photos. Set some rules for what is and isn't appropriate for your kids to communicate, play, and post online. Posts with photos or comments about youthful misbehavior could come back to haunt them. Let them know that anything they create or communicate can be cut, altered, pasted, and sent around. Once they put something on their pages, it's out of their control and can be taken out of context and used to hurt them or someone else. This includes talk and photos of sex, drugs, and alcohol. Tell them that online stuff can last forever. If they wouldn't put something on the wall of the school hallway, they shouldn't post it online. Don't post your location. Social networks allow kids to post their location -- but it's just not safe for teens to do this. Watch the clock. Social network sites can be real time suckers. Hours and hours can go by -- which isn't great for getting homework done.
