Social Networking is the practice of expanding the number of one’s business and or social contacts by making connections through individuals, often through social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Goggle+.
Social Networking has grown tremendously in the last few years. From 2006 onwards the growth rate is unexpectedly very high. Specially Facebook and Twitter have grown much faster and captured millions of users in just a few years.
The way technology is growing, it is obvious that more and more people are going to grasp its benefits. On the other hand it has also affected the society in negative way. Just like anything which can be used for both good and bad, social networking has both positive and negative impact on people. It is all about the usage and getting things done positively by using the power of social networking. It is in the hand of the user to use to its advantage. But willingly it can still have negative impacts on the user.
