What is Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter? Do these sites protect my privacy? Why are some people so against them? Perfectly logical questions and here are the straight forward answers: Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter certainly aren't the only social sites on the web, but they are some of the most popular. Facebook even has over 400 million active users. Here is a quick rundown on their purposes: Social sites are used by people everywhere as a simple and effective way to keep in touch with family and friends. They are also used by many businesses as a source of advertisement.
Alright on to privacy. Yes most social sites do protect users pages if it is requested. When this is done only the users accepted friends can see their page. It has been said that people can hack into pages with web codes, however I tried a few on my own Facebook page to test this theory and found it to be ineffective.
Why are some people so against social sites. Well, one reason is that they can be very addictive (I know this first hand) they can even cause people to neglect work, the key: Set a time limit and don't go overboard!
That's all for now! Until later,
