Introduction
The police of the Almaty region opened a criminal case against a 17year old teenager, who was surfing another’s Internet for a few months and expended 460 000 tenge. As it turned out, the child connected to the internet of Forestry Raiymbek district area which is 500 kilometers from Taldykorgan city. The police contacted with managers of Forest Company, whom Kazakhtelecom presented a bill for an internet for 460 000 tenge. They started to figure out during the investigation that the robber was a Taldykorgan schoolboy. According to a source, "the robber" was arrested in December last year. However, criminal handlings were instituted under the Article 175, Part 1 of the Criminal Code. Now the investigation continues. The amount of damage will be charged from boy's parents. The arrested boy explained that he didn’t have Internet at home, because his family is poor, and he wanted to be always on social networking sites, such as Mail.ru and Vkontakte.ru. Consequently, it is right to say that the boy had a great dependence on social networking sites, and could not pay for Internet at home and at an Internet café. In conclusion, it is necessary to note that in 2010 the police intercepted the activity of two groups of hackers. Ten Internet robbers were detained by  police, they caused major material damage to Talgar’s and Taldykorgan’s organizations. Police  did not rule out the fact that the 17 year old teenager could be with a group of hackers, from which he took over the experience (2010, Tengrinews). The dependence on social networking sites is the problem of teenagers, who cannot understand the real dangers from it. It is necessary to mark that there are positive sides to using social networking sites, such as rapid access to the communication with people, interesting pastime with different interlocutors, and of course the possibility to be in contact every time. These stories are found everywhere. The internet has become an integral part of society. With one keystroke I can buy any little thing at the other end of the planet or communicate with a school friend who lives in Australia. Society is becoming increasingly integrated, globalization is takingXitsXscourse, andXuniversal computerization and Internet communication will only grow. There are prerequisites to think so. And there will be benefits for humanity. But there will be downsides, because every coin has two sides. The problem of Internet addiction was revealed with the growth in popularity of the Internet. Some people got so carried away by a virtual space that they began to prefer the Internet and social networks to reality, spending 18 hours a day on the computer. The dramatic failure of the Internet makes such people anxious and emotionally aroused. The problem of social networks is expressed in the fact that some teenagers no longer realize that virtual communication is only a supplement to a full live communication. Popular social networking sites take the leading position in the rankings of attendance in kaznet. (2010, Kaznet Obzor)  In recent years, among the Internet-resources of Russia and Kazakhstan social networks such as Odnoklassniki.ru, My World and Vkontakte became popular . The problem of social networks leads to the fact that users of such resources lose their individuality (2010, Caravan). Some teenagers cease to realize that communicating online is not a real live communication. In addition, the ability to change reality and to appear rich and successful attracts many...
