Social networking , the world at your fingertips you may say. Internet has been one invention or technology whichever you may call it , that made the world a much smaller place than it used to be. Through it you get to access anything you want , from anywhere in the world .
Social networking is just an advanced type of socializing , making friends from around the globe. The concept was such a hit that there are innumerable number of social networking sites on the internet right now. It all started with ideas like searching for people in other parts of the world with the help of the search engines available , of course Google being the number one in the business.
People of all sorts of age groups can be found on the various sites , usually the popular ones . MySpace used to be the number one site a while ago , now its been outdone by the likes of Orkut and Facebook , and even the micro blogging site twitter which is a huge hit. The teens use them to spend time with their friends , to make new friends from different parts of the world and for their own pleasure. Then some people use these sites to promote their products and companies and so on .And the older people use it just to spend some time relaxing playing on some applications or games with their unknown and known friends.
In a way , social networking is good , as it helps people keep in touch no matter how far apart they are , yet at times it tend to get addictive to the teens who enjoy spending time on the net for hours and hours.
