“Wise As Serpents and Harmless As Doves”
Sharing pictures and ideas, socializing with other people in and out of the country, catching up with present friends and making new friendships, even keeping the extended family in touch – these sum up the important role of social networking.
social networking like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Multiply represents a remarkable facility and also a fast means of communication. Distance between different countries is no longer a barrier here; you can communicate fast and easy with the people dear to your heart from the comfort of your home without any other effort. If you want to open a new project you can send it to all of your friends in a moment and see their reply without having to spend hours on phone calls. This is great, isn’t it? The possibilities are countless.
On the other hand in being a part of a social networking site, there are of course dangers; that occurs as a consequence of the truth that you can’t always be sure about the intentions of a new friend. Murders even have been reported as an effect of the information the murderers gathered from these social networking sites, they had everything at hand there regarding the location of the victim, the lifestyle and daily schedule, etc. This is indeed a serious threat in what seems to be so harmless as chatting with friends and family.
Life is more rewarding with friendship. Every day is a chance to meet someone new. It does not matter if you " re at school, work, or just out running around, people are everywhere. Whether you get along with them or not is your choice. In my experiences, I have found there are three different types of friends that help your life run more smoothly. Many of us meet a good number of friends though ...
Billions of people knows how to use these social networking sites- students, teachers, workers, even a six years old child – as long as there is an internet connection. However, it is also a major distraction of every student in studying. Instead of doing their assignments and projects, they stay in the front of computer to chat, upload and update their status.
As for the future of such sites, with all good and bad, I think on the whole it has the possible to develop to a level where the benefits of it will equal the negative aspects. Remember that anything here on Earth has its limitations. I’d say that yes, we enjoy these sites, but again, the more you share, the more you expose yourself thus opening a door that you might not be able to shut when you’ll want to. Just think for yourself, it is not always good to “go with the flow”. *Like the old but very contemporary advice from Christ says:” wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”
