According to me Social networking site has two faces! In which we have to choose the correct one. People are now a days using SMS, Facebook etc as daily routine. It may be good up to some extent but sharing the personal information and confidential matters, creates the depression for the people.

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.

I would stand with an opinion that USE THE SOCIAL MEDIA WISELY AND CAREFULLY.

Social Media has its own advantages and disadvantages depending on how do we deal with it. It has got many merits in terms of getting to know with different people and day to day updates about current affairs. What is not discussed in Facebook nowadays irrespective of good or bad.

However spending too much time in all these is bad idea it will have bad influence on people those who cannot handle it properly especially children.

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!

In my opinion, Social media having a vital role in day today life of every people. Try to take benefit from it instead of using in bad ways. Now a days Social media are mainly using for relationship so there were happening many issue and problems due to these type of incidents. So try to use it in good way and enjoy the life. Don't exceed the limit because it may cause problems afterwards.

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,

IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES:

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.

Thanks.

I would like to make a point that, many people are saying that these SNS have become good tool for communicating with friends and relative. But in reality, people don't even care of friends and relatives when are beside them while chatting with fb friends and fake fellows. I have seen many of my friends come to meet me and inspite of talking to me, just they do only one thing i.e., texting in fb and all. Isn't it funny, this is how SNS have become great media for communication.

Social networking, as name suggest is a networking of connecting people with each other. People from different societies and culture interact with each other through these sites. In this way it is helpful for people to know about the culture of each other.

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.

At last I want to conclude it is a bane or boon it all depends upon the user how they use it for good or bad things.

Every new technology coming in the market in today's world has got its good side as well as bad side. Using them in proper way is the best way to get the best out of them. Similar is the thing with the Social Networking Sites.

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.

They gradually get addicted to them, wasting more time in it than required, interacting with unknown people which can be dangerous to them.

So social networking sites can be considered as both boon and a bane.

Each and every thing has advantages and disadvantages similarly for SNS. When we use at a certain limit it would be in +ve it helps to improve knowledge and out of limit leads to misuse of SNS. Through this we can know about new technologies, politics etc. ,

Chatting, video calling and exchanging information are main cause to use this site. Some examples are Facebook, Whatsapp, twitter, hike, line etc.,

Social networking sites have made the world a global village. One can connect with his friend, relative from any corner of the world. Social networking sites are fastest and powerful way of communication and sharing information.

Students can create their study group on Facebook, and post their study material, questions. Image of question also can be uploaded. They can discuss solution of various sums. In same manner business / social organisations / NGO. Students can also create their page, groups and can make drastic revolutions.

With the help of Twitter, one can remain updated with daily affairs of their favorite celebrities, which was not exist earlier. Linkedin is a great platform for employers and job seekers.

I really appreciate to thought of everyone but I have an another view about it that.

I agree that we can interact to all our friends and relatives apart from this youngsters are using this social networking sites for making fake relationship and so many things they inherit and cheat to unknown one.

This kind of activity increasing day by day thats result is crime rate rapidly high throughout the year.

Also unwanted activity is going on there that is hacking someones ID and leak the photograph and video etc. So this is not safe for all, if you are unaware.

Social networking sites have become vogue among youths. If a teenager is unaware of sns then he is said to be living a life of solitude. Every idea has two aspects, one a positive and other a negative aspect. It varies from person to person which aspect influences them. Sns is a boon for youths as it provides them with the base to make new friends, interact with old friends, remain in touch with relatives near and far. It creates a virtual platform to meet with near & dear ones through video conferencing, skype, video chatting and various other modes. Low price advertisement, current affairs, presenting ideas on social and political events. Updates of various people fills them up with knowledge of day to day life.

In my views social networking sites are not as bad as people think. Some parents think that social networking sites will exploit their children but this is not always true. I agree that sometimes youngsters use social networking sites for the bad use. But in all these cases there is no fault of social networking sites. 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.

Social networks and it's impact on the new generation.

Social networking is the grouping of individual into specific groups, it could be a group of college student, teenagers, a religious or political groups. Coming together to exchange information and discussing to some interesting debate of their interest mostly online.

"social network is a dangerous place. Simply learn how to use this tools".

Using social networking site has many advantages and disadvantages. Some of the advantages of using social networking are it is like the virtual meeting places where people can just meet and discuss different issue of common interest.

Disadvantages are so many people are thinking wrong way that way social media affected bad way.

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.

Hi friend social networking site become more common among the people. It is a medium which provides a platform through which we can connect different part of the world.

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.

At the same time every thing have some positive as well as negative aspect but that depend upon the mentality of the people.

Social media is a way of connecting people or a medium for sharing ones ideas.

It's technologies takes different forms like internet, blogs, forums, social networks etc.

The qualities social media possess are reach, accessibility, immediacy, permanence.

Today's younger generation depend on social media completely as they prefer to be connected with the world through social networks like facebook, twitter etc.

If we look up the statistics 93% of youth are active users of internet and 73% own a cellphone.

They find it as a place where they can share their ideas globally and the increasing fascination for the gadgets like ipod, tab are due to the impact of social media.

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 my point of view social media is a great boon given to younger generation as it upgrades us in all ventures.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

And.

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.

I feel social networking sites have started affecting the facets of an individual's personality. The person sitting right next to you wouldn't bother speaking to you, much. But when it comes to social networking or chatting, they are the boss. They can go on for hours together and enjoy learning about you. This is not a good thing that people have started to prefer that "behind the desktop" interaction is better than face to face conversation. It is not healthy. Yes, people ho can't afford to meet is a different, matter altogether, but getting less talkative and getting more "typative" is not at all a positive aspect of an individual. But yes, social networking is a merit rather than a demerit as long as we build it on a positive approach.

Friends, I accept all your opinions. Facebook is one of the main reason for the addict of the students. They spend 65% daily in facebook and this make them not to study well and wasting the money of parents. Easy to communicate and connect with others at low price. Low cost advertising, we can advertise the products at low price in this websites.

Spread the important information and also discuss about the present events and current afire. It also advantages.

But disadvantages of social networking.

I) 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.

II) People loose their security by providing self information in this sites. Teenagers and adults show more interest to chat with strangers.

III) Lot of time waste.

IV) Addicted to this websites.

Youth generally uses social media to communicate with their friends, upload photos and to know what is going on around. Using it has a lot of advantages as it can connect us from people which are miles away from us. However, there are also some disadvantages of it if we use it for long hours as it kills our time and there are also chances of cyber bullying.

This platform is very useful to find job opening etc. Business organization can use social networking for advertising new product and promoting their services.

There is no need to say about social networking sites (SNS) to the present generation. Everyone is much aware about Facebook, Orkut etc which are the examples of social networking sites.

Social networking was started on the internet in the form of generalized online communities to group the people having same interests and to share their ideas.

The first recognizable social networking site is SixDegrees which was launched in 1997.

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

In 2011, based on research, the global average of who access daily the social networking sites accounts is 46%.

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

We can keep in touch with friends in today's busy world.

We can improve ourselves by sharing our ideas, information and knowledge and by discussing with the people, who have same interests, even if they are so many miles away from us.

Teachers and professors are making groups to extend classroom discussion to posting assignments, tests and quizzes, to assisting with homework outside of the classroom setting.

Many companies are developing interactive communities that connect individuals to share business needs & experiences.

Students are making a network with professionals for job opportunities and internships.

We can find our friends easily, if we lost contact.

Generally social networking sites have a positive atmosphere. For example, Facebook sends notification, if they are on the top their friend's lists, but it don't send notification, if they were removed as a friend by another person. So there is a least chance for the person to know that.

Hi friends!

In my opinion no doubt social networking becomes the most powerful and fast form of media for communication today. Social networking like Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, whatsapp, and many more uses among more than billion of people today. According to the survey report 2013 youth spend more than 2 hr on social networking sites. As in the digital age social networking is used for meeting new friends, old friends, connecting with family members globally, sharing ideas, photos. Businessman or woman can use social networking for advertising new product and promoting their services. It is very useful for musician to interact their fans. Apart from these benefits these social networking are 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.

Apart from above advantages, definitely every technology has a bright side as well as well dark side too. So, yes it has negative impact on society too. If we use it in excessive than definitely it becomes a time killer for children. It creates account hacking easily for hackers.

So its up to us how we use the technology. !

For example a person having a facebook account, its just like a platform for expressing his/her thoughts, views about society, sports, political, etc. Who can Questioning him/her?

Everyone likes the Social network. But people who belongs to it, they utilize in a right way. Otherwise it go to the wrong way. Especially most of the youths are having social network account. People are saying that, they are wasted their time on Facebook, gmail, twitter, etc. But it is really true fact. Because youths are not create awareness about social issues.

As previously said, it is connected with people and sharing our thought which can not be expressed in personal but viewing and sharing the information of one who is using facebook, we can can't conclude his genuine character because of fake accounts and other cyber crime.

Ideally the medium of social networking has its advantage and disadvantages to the users who can use in a many different forms.

I think the main topic should focus to the children's who are engaging their life in social networking without knowing about its uses. Basically Parents knew about their children habits and in many cases it was found that children do acquire knowledge about friends and their profile status that they need to develop their status like their friends. This is the only way they get addicted and their personal life will be affected. This is the big issue of the government has think as the Information Act has not made any regulations to put it into the matter into consideration.

Social networking is good to those people who have paucity of time and they can stay connected online to have a good time.

These sites provide a huge platform form sharing our views and getting us connected to our friends sitting miles apart by just a click. Sites like linked inn provide us a way to be part of discussions of the big companies. But beside many constructive corners there are many destructive aspects also. People use this "social" platform in a very "antisocial way" by online bullying, fake accounts and breaching in someone's privacy.

We would mostly say that such sites are only doing harm, but, they can make any task easy or difficult for us; they can make our future bright or dull, but it is all up to us the way we want life to be for us.

And, a point to be noted, we are the ones who such site good or bad. These sites never taught us to hack accounts or make fake accounts; but people do it, for fun sake! I know it is ridiculous but we still do it. WE are the ones making them bad. They weren't bad. In fact, they were a source of true happiness when it came into our lives, but now, people want to get rid of it in any possible way.

Over the past decade, social media or the social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, etc have played a huge role in shaping the lives of youth. The past year has seen several notable revolutions taking place through social media as a platform. On the other hand, it may be argued that social media is a waste of time owing to the fact that the youth mostly use it as a medium to chat or communicate with friends and peers which does not yield any productive result.

Let us have a look at the probable arguments both for and against the topic.

For.

- Majority of youngsters use the social networking sites as a mode of pastime. It does not yield any positive or constructive results. There are around 65 billion users of Facebook from India itself.

- The addiction of the social networking sites takes a toll on their hobbies such as literature, music, gardening, scientific experiments, etc.

- The sudden jump in the popularity of the social networking sites has given rise to cyber crimes, as there is lack of privacy and users don't hesitate to post personal information or photographs in these mediums.

- With the advent of the social networking sites, the youth concentrate more on updating an event in their profile rather than actually enjoying the occasion.

Now let us see some of the points against the motion.

Against.

- Social networking sites keep the youth well informed and help them form an opinion on the current social, political or international issues.

- Social media websites are not just a tool for networking but also an important tool of social activism. A Times of India report dated December 26, 2012, quotes a student as saying, "After the recent gang rape in Delhi, I don't just Log on to Facebook for fun anymore. Instead, I'm using it as a tool to spread awareness among my friends," proves that it is not just a pastime anymore.

- Professional networking websites like LinkedIn help the youth connect with probable employers and vice versa.

There are both positive and negative e impacts of social networking websites among the youth. If utilized judiciously, these platforms can be used for something constructive which can be advantageous both personally as well as socially. On the other hand, the negative effects cannot be overlooked as well.

A recent study said that people spend more than five and a half hours on an average on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. They have become part and parcel of our daily lives.

The social networking sites are used to stay connected with friends, share pictures, exchange ideas and so on.

These sites work by sharing information with others: but how much information do we want to share? With how many people would you actually share information so personal? Most of the people have hundreds of friends, but do they actually know each other? Hardly they do.

Most of our friends on social networking sites are those whom we have met once or twice (in some cases complete strangers). But do we even think once while updating our status or while uploading pics or may be commenting on other's pics, that those strangers must be watching.

Would you tell a stranger where you were last night and with whom? Probably not, but when you use these social networking sites you could be doing just that unless you limit your post views to certain people.

Don't you think using social networking platforms we are letting people encroach our private space? Think on it. :).

Happy Reading!

Hello friends.

I think that social networking is essential for us. The reason is that with the help of these sites we can easily communicate with our friends with minimum cost as compare to mobile and we can make new friends. These sites help us to know that what is going in the world in instant of time.

But keeping in mind that social networking is a virtual world not real. Its awareness is very important for every human being those uses these sites. Remember excess of any is very harmful.

Enjoy the life with social networking.

I think the social networking is just a business for the mnc company they earn a lot but investing a little. Agree with the point that we are in touch with our friends relatives but one thing we have to think that can't we get in touch with them without social networking. Just think about guys. So boycott these sites.

Being a social animal we love to connect with our friend and family and this is the reason for the exponential rise in the number of users of social networking sites. At present we do not have any other better alternative to connected with friends as social sites.

Social sites has been created a virtual life for us in that we are connected to hundreds of friend virtually. Best part of social site is easy means for communication and awareness. Dark side is we waste our precious time in just doing gossip. Being a student I had seen that many meritorious student has decline in studying just because of fb.

Well hello, The most important aspect of networking is to get current information which helps you to learn current knowledge but youths nowadays takes this for granted. Although some student also use it for reading purpose and for chatting educational stuff and so on. Youths now take this for granted by watching blue films[porn], corrupted picture which some of them have not reach the age of watching the films and pictures.

I think social networks allow us (Viz youth) to connect with our old friends, and relatives with whom we may lose contact. Humans are social animals by our nature and social networks are just one other outlet for humans to interact. Social networks gave way for the innovation of "Social Gaming" and also allow new "social movements" to form (political, anti corruption movements etc. ,).

But it should be noted that whatever conversation we make on social networks can be seen by countless persons and also should be aware that every conversation will be recorded somewhere in this world. Recently (june 2013) whole family members committed suicide due to facebook (indirectly) , posting family's girl pictures on facebook and stating her as prostitute by her ex-friend.

Social networks are indeed boon for us as it is bringing people closer and letting us communicating with each other. But still one need to cautious of what level of personal information we are revealing on the social networks.

Yes, I too believe that social networking has a lot of positives relating to studies and it also helps us to be in touch with our childhood friends. But as my friend said. Too much of anything is harmful.

If we see, in earlier days when there were no social networking websites, we all used to engage ourselves in some or the other extra-curricular activities. It helped us avoid boredom and stay healthy too. But now a days you name any outdoor sport, it can be played on social networking websites and students get addicted to such games.

Another point I would like to add is that there are many crimes taking place in our country. Many movements are taking place. E.G the anti corruption movement which was led by anna hazare. Yes there are many people supporting this movement and people are angry over the government for the increase in crimes day by day. But one has to admit that 80% of the population in our country are participating in these movements by just liking or sharing the posts related to it. Therefore social networking should be used in a useful way instead of wasting one's life in it.

According to my view Social networks has both positive and negative affect in which way we are using this. So lets take a positive way these networking site are useful for connecting the people in different cities and they will share their thoughts, photographs and opinions with friends. Easy to communicate and connect with others. BY using these social networking sites recruiters post the present openings in their company so un-employees will get good opportunities for their qualification like Fresherslive and we can also know the government job openings. On the other hand it has negative affect in individual personal life, and insecurity.

Social networking these days is spread to each and every corner of the world. I think that social network in children is giving positive and negative in negative we can say that we are sitting in facebook with fake ID and it is wasting our time. In positive words we can says that we are chat with our friends and families, we can learn many things related our study, etc.

THE children are now not reading newspapers but they mostly spend 6 or 7 hours in social network and other webs. There are a lot of other issues that is going every day because of social network. As a student I had see that many bright students had destroyed their future due to social network.

Children are now a days playing games in the time of their studying time. So we should not waste by sitting on social network.

Social networking sites satisfy that basic human need to belong, as well as the ability to experience instant feedback and recognition from someone, somewhere, 24 hours a day.

At the same time, this constant reassurance is coupled with a distancing from the stress of face-to-face, real-life conversation.

Real-life chatting is, after all, far more perilous than in the cyber world as it occurs in real time, with no opportunity to think up clever responses, and it requires a sensitivity to voice tone, body language and even to physical chemicals such as pheromones.

None of these skills is required when chatting on a networking site. In fact, one user told me: 'You become less conscious of the individuals involved (including yourself) , less inhibited, less embarrassed and less concerned about how you will be evaluated. '.

In other words, Facebook does not require the subtleties of social skill we need in the real world. Not only will this impair individuals' ability to communicate - and build relationships - it could completely change how conversation happens.

Maybe real conversation will give way to sanitised screen dialogues, in much the same way as killing, skinning and butchering an animal to eat has been replaced by the convenience of packages of meat on the supermarket shelf.

To start with the influence of online social networks on our youth. Let me to be crystal clear that every invention brings with it some good and some bad effects. Its depends on us whether you make a good use of it or not.

In this modern sophisticated era, social networking plays a pivotal and crucial role in interconnecting people, playing a lead role in exchange of ideas, sharing of informations. Relatives and friends remain in close web of contacts.

But as the saying goes excess of anything is not good. Too much addiction to social networking kills both your time and mind. Youth starts leaving more in virtual world they neglect play, and the close personal social interaction.

Sometime youth are engaged in cyber crimes.

So to sum of my view in one line -its upto us to extract the goodness of anything with applying our wisdom.

Social networking is a need of this present world. We live in a world of media where everything takes place through networking. Olden days we were living in a small world where we know about our village and the surrounding and our relationship is also with that small circle that is enough for those days but today's world is different. We need great amount of knowledge and skill and social relations thus social networking is the medium that we can learn and relate many things but caution to use it. The purpose makes perfect for what we use is it for gaining something good or for entertainment or something bad it depends upon that.

Social network have a huge effect in young people also in adult the problem is that if you use something extraordinary it may have effect that will lead to have a poor concentration in everything because of the way you are using it be careful guys we can try to solve it.

Thats a way forward.

Avoid to create many relationship that will need you to concentrate to.

Make sure that your best friends are not far from you.

Make sure that you see them every day because them more they are far from you its the more you would like to socialize with them because distance that separate you and your friend and that will force you even if metter did not allowed you to social.

Social network are good but use it in a right way so that they won't control you.

We know that every coin has 2 sides. In the same way innovation has its own advantages and disadvantages. Social networking sites has its advantage that through these sites we can talk to distant people without calling or messaging them, we can share what's on our mind, we can share each others opinion on group chat, we can make new friends and keep in touch with them. But as I said before there are disadvantages also that many people get addicted to social networking sites in a way that they forget about their personal, share personal information to unknown persons, misusing the information given to that site eg misusing the photos uploaded on social sites like facebook and orkut. Sharing views on these sites which can create a riot or hurt someone's feeling. There are many disadvantages in using social sites. It depends on the user how he uses it.

Social networking is a vast area where we can make our ideas and also connect ourselves to various fields which we are not much familiar about it. It lets a way to communicate with the world both in good way and also in bad way such that nowadays future generation get addicted to it. Nowadays students were in a project to make projects in CROSS LINKING OF VAN because of the attraction towards the networking. It is a river of both adverse effects and also a lack of knowledge so we must struggle to get rid of it from the adverse effect.

Social networking is a good, efficient and cheap method to remain in touch with our friends, relatives and colleagues. We can share our thoughts and views with people on social networking. It is the best way to broadcast our knowledge and views. We can get the whereabouts of our old friends and colleagues with whom we have not been in touch for long. And also it is the cheapest method to communicate with anyone. One does not have to recharge every time his/her cell phone to talk to his/her friend. So from economic point of view it is best suited. Social networking provides exposure to people by allowing them to share their thoughts, emotions and knowledge.

But we cannot neglect its negative side. Too much of social networking sites is making individuals dumb. They are having social boycott. They are capable of chatting online for hours but practically they are not able to communicate in real life. They hesitate to give their views. Because they are highly addicted to social networking sites and spend most of their time in the same. So they are keeping themselves away from social life. Also it is difficult sometime to find out the truth of the person we are talking to whether it is fake or real. The youths are its victims to a large extent. They are going away from their parents. Instead of sharing their problems and emotions to parents they prefer to share them with their friends on social network. So they are making distance with their parents.

Lastly some individuals misuse the social networking sites by posting or sharing some inadequate material which may cause embarrassment to someone which is a matter of great concern. And it might affect someones privacy.

Ya broadly speaking social networking sites are very much useful for not only to the youths but also to all generations. It provides all knowledge and facilities needed for the present academic and social situation. But if it is a double edged weapon. If it is not used in a proper way it can create problems. Mainly to the children. It is the duty of the parents to look after whether their child is using it for good or bad. They must have control over them.

Like a coin it has both sides advantages and disadvantages. The feature of using social networks we can develop our knowledge upto date, stay on friends, communicate any where, for example we will be member of IEEE and so connected with international people, and entertainment site, free of cost for chat, etc. But meantime some disadvantages are the vital one is hacking their personal information, in online money transaction, sending mails. We should be aware of it. We use social network for developing our skills and improving technology for nation.

According to my view, these social networking sites affect a lot in present day life both in positive and negative way.

It depends upon on the individual mindset to go with good or bad.

We can exchange lot of information like knowing about different places in the world, motivating quotes, pictures of ancient periods, etc. All these improve the individual general knowledge.

But most of the people specially children getting addicted to these sites. Parents should not allow their children to get addicted to these sites.
