Social networking

Postby philipdalton on December 1st, 2011, 2:49 pm

Does anyone use the Internet to keep in touch with their friends or family? Do you use Friends Reunited, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or any other social networking website? Does anyone have a special experience of using such websites they would like to share with the rest of us?

No. All social networking should be banned.

Thanks very much for expressing your opinion Toothy. If you don't mind me asking, is there any particular reason for your viewpoint?

I believe it does more harm than good - bullying being the main problem. I prefer to talk to my friends face to face or over the phone too. Gets you out of the house as well.

Ive only met two people I first knew online and it didnt work out as I had hoped, as far as being just friends goes.

PD,
I love the Internet. A world of information at my fingertips. And I have met a lot of people online. Some became good friends. I have met some face to face. They have been at my house or I have been at theirs. Some have married people they met online and are very happy.

Not that there couldn't be problems mind you. To just have to be careful and not share too much information. Don't be pressured into giving someone a picture or personal information. Leave those types alone as it could be dangerous.

I also keep in touch with family and friends online. It's a great way to convey information. For instance, one relative posted pictures of her new baby. That way we could see them faster then waiting for a picture to be sent by snail mail. It's also fun to be able to show someone online a new item you've just bought or made. Or to be able to see and talk to people in real time. I think it makes communication easier and that is a good thing. Of course meeting face to face is always the best but when you can't, the Internet is the next best thing. IMHO. ;)

Who knows what might become commonplace in years to come? Stephen Hawking believes it might become possible to travel forwards in time. The possibilities opened up by that could be endless. Anyone who could afford one could buy their own personal TARDIS in the shops or online, and if they couldn't find anyone suitable in the present they could always go on a trip to a forthcoming time and marry someone they'd met in the future.
