Social Networking sites are a great way to meet new people, rekindle old friendships, and share interests with others. Social networks are easy and convenient to use. They are used over the internet, such as emails, and you can download the apps on your smart phone.
Facebook is an extremely popular social networking site. First started off only for college students and then expanded throughout every age group. As of 2012 Facebook has one billion active users. People from different countries can become socially acquainted through Facebook. Facebook has other great aspects such as games, private chat, post pictures, videos and blogs so your friends can see.
Myspace, in my opinion was the old Facebook. After Facebook came out Myspace crumbled to the floor. Although it did have its time to shine. With Myspace they had different kinds of backgrounds for each individual and their personalities. You could design your own page and make it as unique as you wanted it. It was like your own personal page of fun. You can post whatever pictures, song or whatever you wanted. What I love about this website was that every page was different unlike Facebook. My favorite part about this website was that there was a song that you chose to be your ”theme song” if you will on your page.
Friendster is a social network that I did not even know existed. It’s an animated looking site, that contains animated games. This social network is not something that I would be interested in socializing in. It’s very child-like and kind of creepy to me. I don’t know if as an adult I would put myself on this site and converse with people. It’s obviously not as popular as the other websites but it probably is for young teens.
Linkedin is another social network that I’ve just recently discovered and really enjoy. This social network is usually used for business and work purposes. In this network posts of resumes are on their profile page. Unlike Facebook, Linkedin doesn’t have friends, they have connections where recruiters or human resource managers can scan through your profile and send you a message for employment.
