Now a days social media plays a pivotal role in our real life. Simply if my brother lives in London and me in India but me and my brothers communicate through live chat its possible through social media. Social media is a platform in which you can put your thoughts and someone give feedback on other side bad use of social media is very irritating.

Social Networking is one of the best way to connect to people virtually. In Contraction it is also one of the best way to lead away from personal development of people. People can learn new thing from the social network, meet new people, develop, but the reality his how much you go advanced virtually.

If you can't personally make your development with the people when you really meet them and when you need to speak in public. Then all the work and learning virtually online goes in vain. So social networks an add-on to your development, don't make it your complete path of your future.

Social networking has positive and negative impacts in youth. You can be updated with what is happening around the world, stay connected and interact with one another, strengthens your relationship with one another, update one another and create groups and pages based on your common discipline which ends up in building connection and opportunities for your respective career by updating various topics to discuss.

However, social networking can create social isolation, encourage poor spelling and grammar, expose underage to online predators, allow spread of information that is perceived as a fact, decrease your productivity, provide a perfect platform for cyber bullying and provide details that increase risks of identity theft.

Hi I'm Bhoomesh,

Social network is one of the best feature in the world. It can contains positives and negatives based on which way we are using. Now a days all are addicting to social networks but, some people using in proper way and other people using wrong way. In proper way we are saving our time on online shopping and connecting with friends and relatives. To disclose the an incident of any place and anywhere in the world. We can chat or video calling using apps like skype and viber etc.

Another way to the people are using to time consuming every day they are waste of time and chatting with fake friends. In these days number of sites are launching some are useful but not all. The key role to addict youth on social network is smart phones. So we conclude that using social network is depending on us to select way.

Social network is one of the best communicating system in this evergreen world. For example through Facebook, twitter, linked in etc, a business person can promote ones business, an actor or producer can promote his film and many more. In earlier days it was difficult to connect with friends, relatives and the other people who lived in far place like abroad.

But now a days we can contact, talk, live video conferencing, share in a second through Facebook, twitter and Skype. So this are some pros and benefits related to social network. However, there are also some cons to this sites like now a days majority of children and youth people are keeping them busy with this social sites which could lead to addiction and waste of their valuable time.

From my point of view one should take this to learn new things, to know recent news, to know what is going on around the world etc, one should not used for chatting only, its a bad habit.

Hello friends,

Social Media is surely a boon. Its an platform to build a network of a like-minded people, expression of new ideas, analysis of present need and surely is one of the sources of bringing new inventions.

When it comes to influence, let social media influence you in a Right way, else it would be like a SWEET KNIFE, which means we might be victim of some fraud company providing a bumper prize of some lacs of Rupees and happily provide them whatever they want.

Surely Online selling portals quote us the best price and we are are always a winner without 'Bargaining', this term might sound cheap to some but friends bargaining is a Right of a Consumer and each youth of our time has learnt this ART in Mumbai's Fashion Street or Linking street or any such markets, but upcoming net savvy youth would never learn this Art.

To conclude Social media is a platform to share your views which can influence many and at the same time be smart enough to let the Right views of others to influence you.

Thank you.

Hi friends,

In my point of view social network is a basic tool in our society. But we can use most of the purposes for creating fake account and embarrassing the others and cause trouble for someone's. But social networking is useful for both bad and good things. And my suggestion is social networking should be used for good purposes only not for bad things.

Hi friends,

In my point of view Social networking Site, the name itself describe its meaning, that connection all over world. It has good and bad site, which site we will improve, this depend on us.

Basically it is a platform for connecting people with different cultures, societies and different types of people living all over the world. Now a days in busy life it become impossible to spend time with close friend, relatives and with those who lives far away from us, SMS help us to communicate with them in a minute.

Using SMS we solve our doubts, Problems in a second and also we share our feeling with all. So I think SMS make our life so easy. But it has also bad site. So We should be very careful while handling the social networks.

As know friends there are many good's & bad's on internet, we all are aware of that I know still youth is only using bad's of internet. To prevent or keep away all our friends and future children we should make change in present.

For making change in them we should introduce them to our roots, i.e. a inspirational stories of Guru Nanak and father of nation Mahatma Gandhi. We should question them they all great personalities were aware of all bad's in society before 100s years back and we say we are more civilised, matured than them even including father and mother so why not we are changing still doing bad use of internet?

I think social networking sites are playing vital role in society. People use this source to communicate with each other. And can share there feelings with everyone. In the sense of pictures and status. We can find latest job alerts and daily walking from sites. Which is very helpful for students.

Some peoples can use this site for spending time. And some wants to stay connected with their friends and family. That's why I think social networking sites are very important.

I think social network is the great boon of us. This media easily connect people with others. We shows our ideas or thoughts in front of the world. We gain many knowledge and up-to-date information about anything that we like. This media helps us to spend joys and sorrows of our life for Eg: If we are either happy or sad, we upload a photo or status something.

Many people share sorrows and joys of using this method. This is the main credits of media. Now a days many people spend lots of time in social media. People have a limit to use social media. Social media may lead to good and bad aspect. We have use that in proper way. Its all in our hand.

Good afternoon,

As I think social networking is just a tool which depends on how we people use it. If we use it in limited and effective way then it is simply the best gift we get in this modern era. It's advantage are unlimited we can get in touch with friend, family and even the unknown one for completely free. Sharing picture and feeling to many people in just a single click, it is also time effective as one can simply post the message on his/her wall and it spread to every one.

However some people also use it spread irrelevant thing on the social networking site which are unsocial and hurting other religion or cast. Evil are also spread through SNS.

In our busy life social networking sites is one of our common way to communicate with our family and friends. It gives us a platform to share our photos, videos and information to all at one time.

Some sites provide virtual platform not only to meet dear ones, but also interviews and business meeting are conducting through videoconferencing. Also a platform for marketing like new companies can promote their product, new writers promote their books.

We can get updates every second what is happening around the world. If any natural disaster take place at afar of our place then through these sites we can help them by donating money and providing clothes, food, medicine.

Youth lose their valuable time by addicting to this, fake accounts increases the cyber crimes, some terrorist groups motivate the youth towards them and also traps the officers gets imp information.

So there are some positive and negatives in this but one should note that lack of ignorance's only makes them a victim and depends on thee user attitude and character.

According to me every things has its advantages and disadvantages. Like social networking sites plays very important role in our lives, that is we are using it to communicate with our friends, relatives etc, and we are getting regular updates that actually what is happening from all the corner of the world.

But today we people make social networking sites as our basic living things like our food, water, etc and we get addicted due to this. In this way, we are just wasting our valuable time on that social networking sites. And disadvantages are like that bad peoples are using it to spread unwanted messages into the people to hurt the socialism.

Otherwise social networking sites keep the world's people connecting with each other. According to me this is the actual globalization.

Hi, I am Kiran.

I would like to take the neutral position in this discussion because the social networking has both positive & negative effects on our life. Looking at the positive site it is the tool if used to its maximum potential can connect us with the world. We can share our thoughts, feelings etc, on social network sites such as Facebook, WhatsApp, twitter etc, we can get the news from all sectors like economy, politics, banking, society, national, international.

We can get connected with our old friends, make new friends, increase our contacts. The message can be sent within few seconds to friends & others. We come to know what is happening around the world on these social net working sites. Apart from these positive effects there are many negative impacts of social networking. The youth today is wasting alot of its precious time on social networking sites. Even if the social network is expanded community life is coming to an end.

It is like addiction to many of users & they can't live away from it either. The fake accounts is also a problem in which the girls are get trapped easily & the consequences are very dangerous. Today the terror outfits are also using the social networking sites to trap & pull the youth towards terror activities.

Social networking in our lives.

Hi friends.

SNS as the name itself suggests that it is a basic platform for connecting people with different cultures, societies and different types of people living all over the world. In this modern era everybody are preoccupied by their works and it became difficult to meet each other personally, in this type of situation SNS played a vital role in providing virtual platform like Skype, video chatting connecting dear and far relatives and friends. Every idea will have two aspects in the same way SNS have positive and negative impacts.

Positive :

1. We can share the information within seconds.

2. It is very useful for start-up companies to promote their products at low cost.

3. It is useful for a student to share assignments. It helps a lot for education where students can refer data from e-books, articles, presentations etc.

4. For a normal person it will use to acquire the knowledge about current affair. Keep in track with latest technology.

5. It creates a virtual platform to meet with near & dear ones through video conferencing, Skype, video chatting and various other modes.

6. The people who use it badly are faulty. If you are given stones then you can make bridge out of these and you can also make a wall out of these. It entirely depend on individuals how he use it.

7. Social networking sites are used for various purposes like in politics, business, technology etc.

E-commerce (online shopping) is the best example. As we can purchase anything online. Various sites available are flip-kart, snap-deal etc.

8. The first recognizable social networking site is Six-degrees which was launched in 1997.

Till now, there are more than 200 social networking sites are in the internet.

Facebook, launched in 2004, has become the largest social networking site in the world.

9. It is becoming most advance form of job search portals. Job seeker can easily search job from a single platform. Now a days it becomes a part of social campaign for corruption, politic, national movements.

Negative :

1. For teenagers too much addiction to sns leads to decrease in the concentration of his/her studies.

2. If you use more than limits than it is a time killer.

3. Making unnecessary relationships with opposite gender.

4. Students share the subject files during examination which is malpractice.

5. Now days we are seeing some terrorist groups are using these sites to motivate the youth towards the terrorist activities.

6. Now a days so many cyber crimes are through social media.

7. I read one news that Pakistani terrorists are contact the one of their army person through the SNS and made him to help them by providing what he wants.

8. Children at young age should never be allowed to use these sites because at such young age they would be exposed as at their age they are not in a position to decide whether it is right or wrong to be friends with strangers and also exposing them to social networks will erode their innocence. All things should be done at right time and social networking is not a right thing for very young kids.

At-last I would say if a big stone and a hammer is given to you, you can make statue or you can break the stone with hammer, in the same way it depends upon the attitude and character of a user who use it for good or bad.

So my suggestion is to use social networking sites in good manner! every invention is useful to human life until we notice its importance. So make a notice. Use carefully.

But as most of the friends says that every coin has two sides but I think this is totally depend upon the users nature and usability. Yes I agree with that the excess use of social media will affect the human mentality as well as it will make human dull and inactive.

I think we live in 21st century and we must keep ourselves up-to-date with the worldwide affairs. Social media is a good thing for the information of the whole world. But the young generation is misusing the advantage of social media and they spend their precious time in making friends and chatting nonsense gossips. They are also being far from their family, parents and relations are being ignored due to the addiction of social media.

It is good if used limited otherwise it can make you alone if given much more importance than your family and parents. Also if you waste your precious time with social media you will lose the most opportunities of life.

It is a good when we connect our friends and share any information or discuss in group and like those page which page gives us a more updates and information to us.

But it is bad when we waste our precious time on social networking site and some peoples are distance with their family.

Hi friends.

There are two point here social network has both positive and negative effects on youth. First I would describe positive effects. By the social networking I can give example like face book where people can connect with each other and they can shear their idea. People can make group and here they can shear about various things one could find his old-meats and he get to know about him also we can regulate any social issue you can put your status what are you doing and where are you right now.

So these are positive effects of social network and now I come to on its negative effects. Highly negative effect is people specially youth are expanding their more time on these sites and their virtual interaction with people and social knowledge being phased out and their interaction with their parents being less and are going far from their social value and becoming social addict the are knowing about what is happening in other life but they don't known about our country satisfactions too bad. This is my point of view. Guys what you think.

Good evening friends. We are here to discuss importance of social networking in our lives. I think that everyone among us must be having an account on either Facebook twitter or whats app. These sites help us to connect with our old friends as well as give us the opportunity to make new friends with whom we can share our pictures, videos or thoughts.

It helps a person to be updated. Many people say that using these sites are a waste of time. But I think it depends upon us how we use these sites. We can make a Facebook page an examination where aspirants can join and have group discussions, solve their problems even we have website like twitter where we can trade a topic and make it popular.

At the end I would like too say that everything have its advantages and disadvantages its on us what we choose.

Demerits of social networking sites:

Nowadays, the social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are open for anyone who wants to participate. On social networking sites users express very powerful concerns about privacy of their personal information, but do not care about safeguarding it. Although a lot of the information individuals supply on social-networking sites is elective, users are progressively more comfortable with displaying a great deal of personal information online. Therefore, one of the main concerns for users who register in these sites is privacy. So, the privacy is one of the obstacles that have faced the use of social networking in education.

Through social networking, person has a lot of friend but the quality and integrity of these friendships is not always true. On the other hand, data on these social-networking sites for a person is not always 100% honest and reliable, and they do not verify personal details (age, location, etc.) of their members. While sites provide an opportunity for individuals to present a positive and accurate self-image, there is an equal potential to abuse this openness. So, having many friends through social networking sites is likely to be more harmful than good.

The amount of time spent by individuals with each other online has risen to greater extent. This has effect on health of individuals, because spending a lot of time browsing these social networks can affect the way the genes operate within the human body, and weakens the immune and hormone levels. In addition, it is also has an impact on mental health. Moreover, the use of social networking in the education can cause lack of motivation towards learning and can be boring sitting in front of computer for a long time.

Yes there are few advantages of social networking sites like it keep connected us with our friends and relatives, we can share and debate on our views and current happenings, get jobs notifications and so on. But these needs can be also fulfilled other media and sites (other than sns).

There are many demerits which overshadow these benefits. One of which is its not secured and your account may be hacked by someone. The developer of facebook Mr. Zukarburg accounts is also not safe from being hacked. His a/c had been hacked and his personal information and photographs had leaked. Then how can we will be relied on these sites.

Like many things, there are positives and negatives to social media that could be listed for days on end (such as cyber-bullying, publicity, communication, etc). Regardless, the fact is that social media has had a significant impact on our society. So much that almost everything in existence contains the phrase Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, subscribe to my YouTube Channel, and so many other notable phrases. The more time you spend with something or someone, the more it influences you.

Because of contact time, users of social media, so virtually everyone needs to be educated on how to appropriately use social media so that the influences of the more popular media sites like Facebook and Twitter don't have negative effects on native users. It doesn't have to be long or official by any means so long as what to do and what not to do is addressed.

In short, know what you are getting into and be careful. In addition, if someone you know is joining social media for the first time, let them know what they are getting into.

Hello friends, In my opinion the question "whether social networking is good or bad?"is very analogous to whether "gun is good or bad?" A soldier uses gun in different manner and a terrorist in different way. In my view the advantages of social networking are so much to overshadow its negative impact. In 21st century it provided a perfect platform to everyone to connect with others, friend and relatives, communicate with them, share our ideas. In today's busy life its hard for us to meet our close one regularly, but with help of Facebook, WhatsApp etc. We can get the very similar feel.

The websites like twitter provide a platform for sharing our views, organizing online debates and consensus among common peoples. With the help of social media its very easy today to get opinion polls and views of citizens which has great importance in Indian democracy. So overall social networking is good.

Social networking is one of the best our life but it have several bad goods. Why I am saying in day to day life every one should use the social sites. Its true. Sites are SMS, Facebook, whatsapp, newspaper etc.

Take your life in every morning we have to reading newspaper to gain our knowledge, to collect some information. Its the useful of social site in Facebook we have find stranger person or friends and then communicate the information well.

But its the just part of the life. So don't waste your valuable time. Do something most of the people are addicted in social sites, especially adult children.

So finally social sites like coins there are two sites heads and tails something social sites are several advantages and disadvantages are there. If your using good manner to gain grow up your knowledge.

But, If you went wrongly, lose your life. So use carefully. And then how its use the social sites? Are give up your hands positive or negative choice is yours. Select your life.

Yes it is a great thing that we youngsters have much more media for our future entertainment & betterment. That doesn't meant we people have to use these sites for our criminal wishes & to fulfill our mentality. We use these sites only for our time pass but in this type of time pass we always forgetting a big thing is that our parents.

We all know that our parents things to spend much more time with us they always trying to interact with us but we just forget them we become to live in a imaginary world which never can't be the real one. We all know that we are loosing our time through the social networking sites but we are not able to avoid these cause is that we don't have much thinking power.

If once in a day we will think that what much of time in the day I had lost then it is sure that we will get the whole day. The answer is just this "the whole day". Means we just make the whole day means 24 hours means 1440 minutes means 86400 seconds only as worthless. Do you people think its only but I think this is not.

Day is just enough but the use of social sites in the mid night affect our thinking power, we fall in less thinking. We will make to just avoid the real chase cause we are not able to think deep. Use of these for our need is just enough that's all.

I admit that man is a social animal and he loves to maintain healthy relations with others. But considering social networking sites, I feel that they have really degraded everyone-especially the youth.

One loves to upload recent pics, post coolest comments, converse with his friends, but in the course of this process, he loses the courage to face others. In other words, he becomes "a lion behind the stage, but a giraffe in front of public".

The aim of the social networking sites, when they mere made, was to enhance geniality in relations, and such sites are really useful for people working in companies or running organisations, where they need to discuss topics of importance. But what sort of happiness they give to youngsters has not been understood by me yet!

One makes hundreds of friends just to shower his superiority over his friends, but later he himself is unable to handle all of them. Talking with someone does not mean friendship. Friendship has a deeper meaning. And the thing is worsened by the fact that he befriends even those who he does not know!and if unluckily, one of them turns out to be cheater, then?He will be the worst sufferer.

One feels unsafe when his social conversation friend receives more likes on his uploaded photos. He wishes how to compete with him. It seems ridiculous that one wants to compete on such matters!Compete on studies, compete on your good qualities!such airy pleasures are nothing. They may make you happy one moment, but you will surely cry the other moment.

Such sites can never exchange your emotions with others. If you want to talk to your friends, GO MEET THEM, TALK TO THEM!. Really these moments will make you HAPPIER !

One spends all day waiting for comments but cannot tolerate studying attentively for even an hour or sitting next to his parents. We have really forgotten those sweet moments when we used to sit with our relatives and talk with them, laugh with them.

Today the situation is so worse that if one's relative is unwell, he simply posts a short comment on his profile"GET WELL SOON". Are these short words more effective than a warm meet?

Even the ISIS uses such instruments to terrify others by uploading slaughter videos and threatening words. It really hurts when people use such sites as instruments to harass, defame others. Owing to all these reasons, I feel that social networking sites are eating up our emotions and feelings and making us DUMB, HEARTLESS MACHINES!

For me, social networking is a good and also a bad thing.

We can can make it only good. But some are not trying for that social networking is now an important part of our life. Specially for teenagers and children it is their world. If we use it in a limit it can be good. If we use it overtime, then it's surely bad for you.

As for me social networking sites like FB whatsapp etc are drugs. But I can or I am able to control it. Not only for me, I think most people are like this. I am very addicted to this things but I can manage my time too.

You also should be like that. So don't waste your time by sitting in front of these.

It is being used in many forms by many different platform for many reasons. The transmissions device is anything that carries a message, including sound waves, light waves, pieces of paper, mobile phone and telephone signals and an endless number additional carriers.

I'm interested in the role of communication because I use some form every day and notice that it is becoming a rising trend.

Using social networks like Facebook and whats-app, we can able to communicate with the people from any part of the world. This has both advantage and disadvantage. These are left with individuals using social network.

Considering the ADVANTAGE:

We can have a good interaction, we can update our knowledge, we can get lots of friends and we can interact with different levels of people. On uploading works (e.g. Pics or any useful information) and if we get many likes or someone shares it then there incurs inexpressive happiness. We can get many notifications eg. If we forget our friends birthday it shows notification through which we can remember and thus a good relationship is maintained.


The students used to sit before the FB and chat with the friends due to this there occurs a break in family and interaction of students with parents has been decreasing. Also fake id threatens the youngsters a lot. The students get highly addicted towards it and results in away that there cannot be a day without social network for them.


One can use social networks and it is not restricted. But if our usage is limited then it would be great advantage. Definitely it is left with individual. We can allow any sort of trends to follow with us but not too much.

Thank you.

I'm a girl studying at a Community College in Barnstaple and I wanted to share my view on social media. Today, I sat through a 20 minute long assembly about the effects of social media on teenagers and I heard a couple of terrible occasions of bullying through sites such as Facebook.

But it made me think more widely about the subject and why everyone acts so negatively about it. Grown ups continuously nag at how dangerous and scary it can be. And I completely understand that horrific events have occurred online on sites such as Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, but what I don't understand is why no one thinks about the positive sides of social media. How we can contact people all around the world for free?

Share pictures or posts in an instant. Yes, Facebook can be dangerous, but what if we use it sensibly like the majority of young people do. I believe social media is a huge improvement for our world today and I want to know why people feel the need to teach us that it's so wrong, When you refer to us as the experts of today's technology?

I personally think we should be more grateful for the wonderful technology we have been gifted with and stop worrying about. Let's move on!

Social media is a platform which encourage youngsters to exchange their opinions.

Since many people post and share the controversial current affairs, they can be kept informing of the current happening, make comments and share it with friends.

Therefore, information is spread in a very fast way compared with traditional media. This is the power of social media. Not only could youngster obtain information quicker and easier, they could take of the discussion. It is no longer a single direction media.

In sum, I think social media definitely bring benefits to the youth.

With help of Facebook we can contact with over all world wide friends. We can chat, we can do video call with them. This all are free cost also using of Facebook we can see all wonders and we can find helpful information relating to education like job openings, interview questions etc. But some people are using this in bad way.

If it went wrong! recently a Pakistani women had a conversation with Indian army person and squeezed information about the higher position persons. After knowing the truth about the personal, the officers were dismissed of his criminal offence. Therefore the person applies his career.

So my suggestion is to use social networking sites in good manner! every invention is useful to human life until we notice its importance. So make a notice. Use carefully.

Social media sites are the one where we can make relationship with many others all over the world.

In my view the social media have the following disadvantages.

1. Even though they are creating the world as small as possible, it create the huge gap between the people surrounding like friends and relatives. Like take an example now a days we see that our friend in hostel if we go to their room he always uses sns like Facebook and Chatting with their far friends neglecting us.

2. Now a days so many cyber crimes are through social media.

3. It causes that so much of the waste of time to students who are using them even though in classrooms. Without listening in class room they download material from these sites and it lessens their creativity.

4. Now days we are seeing some terrorist groups are using these sites to motivate the youth towards the terrorist activities.

5. We are thinking we can share information, that is right. What about our personal information. I read one news that pakistani terrorists are contact the one of their army person through the sns and made him to help them by providing what he wants.

6. Recently, we are seeing that Hollywood actress images are spread all over the world because of social media. It disturbs their relationships. Hurt their feelings.

Everything has two sides like coin has head and trails but the if we use the sns for the knowledge and good purpose then it will be useful.

Exposure to social media has its own benefits but we need to be careful in revealing our personal details to such an extent that someone might keep a record and may create easier ways to serious crimes.

The people who are online have a false sense of security as they are physically sitting in front of their computer either in office or at home and are vulnerable to expose their personal details.

Hi friends,

The topic on which we all are talking about is a very important one and is snatching concern of everyone today. I think that social networks are not practically harmful, but its we who are making it so.

Connecting with strangers, making friendship with the persons who are far away from us is not at all a bad idea, rather, I appreciate this but the point is that everyone must use it by knowing the limitations.

No teenagers or young people must be stopped from using social networks but surely they must have the realization that a slight mistake on web might spoil their life. Today social media has got connected with our life in such a way that anything on web catches our whole attention and also affects our daily life.

I am myself a social networking user and I am fighting against a group of fraud people on Facebook and I am not alone because I have a group who supports me a lot.

So it is a request of mine to all of you to please raise your voice against any mischief on social networking sites and always remember that your ignorance might make you a victim on those sites and then no one would be able to save you from being webbed!

Hi friends.

SNS as the name itself suggests that it is a basic platform for connecting people with different cultures, societies and different types of people living all over the world. In this modern era everybody are preoccupied by their works and it became difficult to meet each other personally, in this type of situation sns played a vital role in providing virtual platform like skype, video chatting connecting dear and far relatives and friends. Every idea will have two aspects in the same way sns have positive and negative impacts.

Positive :

1. We can share the information within seconds.

2. It is very useful for startup companies to promote their products at low cost.

3. It is useful for a student to share assignments.

4. For a normal person it will use to acquire the knowledge about current affair.

Negative :

1. For teenagers too much addiction to sns leads to decrease in the concentration of his/her studies.

2. If you use more than limits than it is a time killer.

3. Making unnecessary relationships with opposite gender.

4. Students share the subject files during examination which is malpractice.

Atlast I would say if a big stone and a hammer is given to you, you can make statue or you can break the stone with hammer, in the same way it depends upon the attitude and character of a user who use it for good or bad.

A warm good evening to one and all,


Social networking has become one of the most important parts of our daily life as it enables us to communicate with a lot of people. Social networking sites are created to assist in online networking. These sites are generally communities created to support a common theme.

Since the creation of social networking sites such as MySpace, LinkedIn, and Facebook, individuals are given opportunities to meet new people and friends in their own and also in the other diverse communities across the world.

By doing so, individuals can become friends or fans of the profile, and will be updated on current events, specials, and other essential information that the masses would like to share.

In earlier days people cannot think about social networking because, in those days science was not so advanced, but due to advancement of technology over the period of time people has become very much accustomed to this particular method of socializing. It is also is a platform where our creations and thoughts are presented to a huge lot of masses.

Social networking is very informative, entertaining and it also aware us about various situations or events which are going on in the society or in the world at large. Social networking facilitates us to also enhance our viewpoints as it enables us certain interactive learning activities also.

Thus, to summarize social networking sites are the most important and uninstructed parts of human lives in the modern times.

Other positive effects are that we can share things very easily. As a student it is helpful for us in a way that we share our assignment questions with each other. But it has bad effect if we share the answer of our assignments. Other negative effects like wastage of time, addiction etc.

They are basically developed to facilitate communication among the people staying far or near. They can be used to interact with new people, share views, get new ideas, and concepts.

Those who know the limit of the usage of these sites they utilize them efficiently. Maximum percentage of them who use these sites are the youths and they are the one who get effected more compared to other sensible or matured users.

They find them interesting, something that help them psychologically to divert from the real world and get a temporary happiness which when goes out of limit causes a negative impact on them.

Social Networking it generally means a medium or we can say a platform through which we can interact with our friends or relative anyone. There are many social networking sites that are available today like facebook, whatsapp, hike, twitter. I think its a boon if we use it in a limit but when one goes out of limits then it become bane for him/her.

Social networking sites are used for various purposes like in politics, business, technology etc.

E-commerce(online shopping) is the best example. As we can purchase anything online. Various sites available are flipkart, snapdeal etc.

Youngsters can do chat with their friends through fb and whatsapp. These make the whole world a global family. We all feel connected with the whole world. As todays life is so busy that we can't meet our relatives and friends.

Using these sites we get aware of all the strategies or future plans of politicians.

But many youngsters spend most of their time in doing chatting and sending unnecessary videos. So I want to say that every new technology is for our betterment. But if we goes out of limit then its a bane for all of us.

It is a platform where we can share our ideas and felling. The major area which is influence by it include education, shopping, treatment, marriage and other.

Usually we are connected with our friends, teacher and other people to whom we can share our problem and get the solution. Also we can join tutorial class, download ebooks, pdf and video lecture. One of the most common use of social networking site for shopping. Now a day people are more busy in their work and find it very difficult to find out time for shopping, in that case they have to just place an order on site like flipkart, snapdeal, Ebay and other.

Also now a day we can find our life partner with the help of matrimonials site. In that case we have enough time to know the like, dislike and feeling of our partner.

In this way we always take care of his/her feeling and emotion.

It facilitates to have open communication leading to enhanced discovery and delivery.

For students social media gives a lot of exposure and help them to have updated knowledge about various technologies. It serves to kindle their ideas in their interested subjects. One can even start a blog and discuss his views with everyone.

It helps a lot for education where students can refer data from ebooks, articles, presentations etc.

And also they can browse about various job opportunities around the world through websites like naukri, linkedin. They can upload their resume and can view the company's profile their technologies and can update their knowledge based on the current trends.

Today online shopping is engrossing among youth rapidly since everything is available in a single place and also a wide variety of choices. The payment it can be done either by credit cards or debit cards or even cash on delivery is available.

There are social media threats like cyberbullying, phishing etc and there are certain ways to prevent them:

Install theft protection software, avoid giving personal information, privacy settings, do not save your passwords in public PC's.

The major factor of social media is communication of data and that data can be an appropriate or inappropriate. So it depends on a person who uses this boon in a right way.

From the ages of phones to mobile phones, computers to laptops, sms to whatsapp, postcards to face books, all these are live example of increase arena of social networking in our lives from past to present.

With change on time, social networking among people also changes resulting in contacting more people, pals, peers, friends in lesser time. We can chat our friends in a single click, no matter where they are. We can cherish memorable moment of each other's live via networking site and even compliment each other without much hassles and at a very nominal cost. Social networking sites make our life so easier as we do not have to contact each friend in individual as we can chat with them in a group. Same increase our contactability with all our friends without costing much money, time & effort. These sites keep us updated about all the recent events, news, affairs, fashions, latest trends of markets etc on daily basis. There are special blogs of expertise views available for all types of users to resolve their queries and all just free or at a very nominal cost in just a click.

However, same have some disadvantages too as we start living in virtual world only. If said social networking sites are not used carefully, can result in identity theft. Person become so under confident that they fear the physical interaction in this real world and prefer living in this virtual world only. Parents have to keep a tab on their kids especially teens that they use these sites for good purpose only and do not get misguided by the same.

Hence we can conclude that if this social networking is used correctly can be a boon for our lives and viceversa.

Social media and SNSs are such kind of crystal balls that can be used to see the live image of the society what's going on, how it happened from politics to playground it can show you every aspect from many dimensions of sources.

There are many points which shows that how disastrous and misleading these social sites could be, many cases from forgery to death have nexus around social networks.

A dialog in ROBOCOP hit me that. "it's not the gun, but is about who handles it" same is for the SNSs.

Use of own common sense is much desired because its your life and time which you are killing by sitting before desktops for hours living in a virtual world.

Hi friends.

I would like to say that social networking has turned up to be the best and even the worst part of someones life. From sharing important articles to documents that are among our need we also waste time just my scrolling down pages and doing nothing productive.

I won't feel it a good thing if anyone mentions that its refreshes our mind sitting in front of a glaring screen. When it comes to work keeping up relations with distant and closed ones social networking is just a big boon for the man from the IT technologies running up in this world otherwise its just just a way to keep ourselves off the reality outside.

Actually, the issue of social media and its influence can not be overemphasized.

Remember this godly saying (proverb) ; the holiness or purity of everything lies in the hands of the beholder. The way one patronizes the social networks will determine the the degree of influence in ones life.

For now, what I will say to my fellow God fearing youth is this, before you make good use of every opportunity in life make sure you seek God approval, even before embarking into social networks manipulations. Note that social networks is God's hand works and one has to be careful even when making good use of it so that you won't be a victim of be coming the EVE of our generation. Don't be deceived to use the social networks foolishly. God bless you even as you use the social networks you seek to know the will of God for your Life.

By reading all the above matters, I have noticed that everything has its own advantages and disadvantages it depends on their use that is how we are using it, we cannot say that it is harmful or it has bad impact on today's youngster, as it has many advantages also lyk we are using facebook to connect with our friends as today each and everyone is so much busy in day to day life, we don't have that much time to talk to our friends that are not in our contact but due to facebook. Whatsapp. Twitter. We are in contact with them. When we are free than for passing our time.

We can use it. Inspite of this many people are thinking that it is harmful for today's youngster, I agree with those people but I want to say it is because of those people who are using it not for good work for doing some bad job on it that makes bad. Hence, we can that it depends on people to people how they are using it for bad work or for bad. Many people are using these social sites for getting moneys.

This is very useful for them for earning money. They can remove their requirement of money with the help of these sites but in many cases such sites are trying to cheat the people by knowing their bank account password. After trapping in circle of these sites many people lost their money and due to which they become so much poor that they have to choose death track.

As their are two face for a coin same way there are merits and demerits for social networking. It depends on individual personality that how one use it.

If focus on positive sides we are able to interact with friends and keep in track with latest technology. It also helps in expanding your business because there are millions of people who are on these sites.

If look at demerits of it is time killer. We sit hours together in social sites like facebook, twitter. Etc gaining little information inspite we get addicted to it. Their are undesirable sites which expose things beyond the limits.

Its negative impact has created insecurity among them.

Conclusion; think before any act. Its in our hand to make something boon or curse.

Social networking sites have become part of our daily life. Its upto us how we use it then it will be proved good or bad for us. According to me social networking is much more advantageous in many ways.

There are many social networking sites by which we can go through in contact with our friends, relatives in this busy life. Also sites like google can be used for developing our knowledge. The social networking sites gives us the recent updates of everything happening in the world about new research everything.

Many things have became easy only because of social networking sites. Specially for job seekers it has become easy for them to search jobs from any corner of the world. Then with the help of Skype we can even talk and see to person sitting in other countries. Nowadays most of the meetings are done on Skype.

So according to me although it have disadvantage but it has many advantages.

Good evening one and all.

I want to drag your attention to the use of social networking sites by political parties, some major political parties does have cyber team which is 24*7 online and analyzing the posts. The Leaders also give their views on twitter, fb and lots OF pranky post and low level comments are made on them.

Now this leaders are using twitter as medium to communicate rather than saying it in media.

Social Networking Sites is a boon in today's world and it totally depends upon us that how we use them, weather to improve ourselves, to know about latest technology, information or to degrade.

Children and teenagers must be guided by their parents and their well wishers as they don't know what is good and what is bad.

Anyone who is using SNS must be aware about security of their personal information.

Life will be great if we spend less time on SNS and more time in real world.

Hai friends.

A social networking service is a platform to build social networks or social relations among people who, for example, share interests, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections. A social network service consists of a representation of each user (often a profile) , his social links, and a variety of additional services.

Social networking is web-based services that allow individuals to create a public profile, to create a list of users with whom to share connection, and view and cross the connections within the system. Most social network services are web-based and provide means for users to interact over the Internet, such as e-mail and instant messaging. Social network sites are varied and they incorporate new information and communication tools such as, mobile connectivity, photo/video/sharing and blogging.

Online community services are sometimes considered as a social network service, though in a broader sense, social network service usually means an individual-centered service whereas online community services are group-centered. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, pictures, posts, activities, events, and interests with people in their network.

In my point of view, social networks playing vital role in our lives. Whether good or bad depends on us if you are using proper way we can learn a lot of skills from them.

"good is good for good people. If we are good, everything will good for us".

So many people are thinking wrong way. That's way social media effected bad way,

Just change your way of thinking that time everything will be ok. Try it.

According to my opinion as coin has 2 sides social network has both merits and demerits. In its positive side, social networks are 'knowledge developers' as the update of status by a new information help us to update our knowledge. And in its negative side it is time killers. Since many of the people are addicted to it and spending most of their free hours with social network's. Actually the usage of person depends when something is wrong or right. If that person uses it for good things. It is good. If it is for bad things. Social network sites are bad. So it depends on use of person.

Hi to one and all.

I also want to give my mind on this topic.

We are having many social networking sites like fb, twitter, linkedIn etc.

And we all are connected to the world by these sites.

It hardly matters to us whether we know them or not. We just want to spend our time with them, as in the present age we hardly have true friends, relatives.

So we find an alternative to share our views, that is social network.


Even if some of us is having them, than we just neglect them becoz of our daily routine work.

We hardly get time to spend with them. And the result is we have to live with the FAKE RELATIONS, FAKE PEOPLE WITH THEIR FAKE IDENTITY.

And somewhere or the other our attitude does matters, what we accept or not. These social activities lure us and at the end we just becomes so much addicted to it and have no means to live our life in a better way.

Frustration, depression becomes our partners.

Because we are just missing the real essence of life. And that comes by spending time with your KNOWN NEAR DEAR ONES.

And I am not denying the fact that it is having a lots of advantages, but they come with a cost we pay for disadvantages.

Thank you.
