During the past few years, there has been an extremely huge outbreak of social networks. Everyone with a smartphone or computer has one. No matter what age you are, anyone can make an account. There are many ways of looking at social networking, both good and bad. There are studies that say that students who use social networks have better grades. This is probably because students share school information online, such as assignments and projects. Another good use for social networking is monitoring potential criminal activity. If someone posts about doing something illegal, police can see this and take action. The biggest pro about social networking is pretty much in its name. It allows people to be social and work on their social skills with friends and others. Although there is a lot of positive uses for social networking, it also has its bad side. Social networks spread news fast and sometimes it can be false information. Social network accounts are also very easy to be hacked and hard to keep private. There is also a lot of mean and rude people on social networks and everyone can be messed with or cyberbullied. Social networking can be good and bad for you. Its up to the users to decide what kind of social networker they want to be.
