IMPACT OF SOCIAL NETWORKING - BY LADY DEE
As we all know, Social Networking is the "IN" thing these days, and almost everyone is connected in some way or another to people by way of Social Networking, such as Email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and many others. But how are these means of communicating with others impacting our society, our country, our world!?
I personally am connected to a few, but Truth Be Told, I prefer the old fashioned method of communicating, by picking up the phone and saying "Hello, How are you?". I have to admit I am not much of a letter writer, but it is sometimes necessary, depending on where your person or persons are in the world. I will write a story, poem, song or article in a minute, but letters, Not my thing! LOL!
I think Social Networking is a great tool for people to connect and network, meet new people, secure business contacts, jobs, and lots of other great opportunities, but it can also cause many troubles. I'm sure we have heard the countless horror stories of young girls being stalked and/or murdered because of someone they have met ONLNE, or stories of Bullies, that have driven youth to commit suicide and so many other stories!
I think it's time for us to take a good look at how we utilize these Social Networking tools and ensure that our children are also being compliant with their parents for Safe Use of these Social Networking sites!
Let's stay informed, stay connected but most importantly, STAY SAFE on these sites!
