1-WHY DO PEOPLE USE SOCIAL NETWORKS
In my opinion:
1. It saves time. In our busy lives, making time to schedule face to face meetings doesn't fit into our schedules. We can "catch up with one another" as time permits. 2. Meeting others with similar interests is easier.
3. As emails, addresses and cell phone numbers change throughout your life, you always have a constant place to reach someone.
*Using a social networking site brings like minded people together for chat, conversation, exchanging ideas, and even meeting in real life. Social networking has become an extension of "sitting around the camp fire" and discussing life events.
