Effects of Social Networking Sites To The Youth of Brgy. Poblacion, Balete, Batangas A Research Presented to the Faculty of University of Batangas Lipa City
In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements in Social Science I Alexandra B. Manzanillo
Social networking is the process of finding friends and managing friendships through the Internet. Those who wish to meet others online put up their most compelling and attractive presentations through their profile pages. They join various groups that meet their interest and communicate by commenting topics therein or by simply introducing new topics related hoping to encourage discussion. According to Danah M. Boyd and Nicole B Ellison (boyd, d., & Ellison, N. (2007))“social networks are web-based services that allow individuals to construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded
system, articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection and view and traverse their list of connection and those made by others within the system.” This can be seen on the various social networks available on the Internet, such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and many others. In this paper, I will explain the history of social networks, the advantages and disadvantages of such sites and where I stand as a social networking person, although I favor social networking sites.
I dedicate this research paper to my professor Dr. Minerva Apita as Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements in Social ScienceI, and to my parents who taught me that the best kind of knowledge to have is that which is learned for its own sake, and taught me that even the largest task can be accomplished if it is done one step at a time.

Background of the Study
The first hint of social networking websites was witnessed in the year 1997 through formation of a certain company called Sixdegrees.com. This company was the first of its kind; it allowed user to list their profiles, provide a list of friends and then contact them. However, the Company did not do very well as it eventually closed three years later. The reason for this was that many people using the internet at that time had not formed many social networks hence there was
little room for maneuver. It should be noted that there were also other elements that hinted at Social network websites. For instance, dating sites required users to give their profiles but they could not share other people's websites. Additionally, there were some websites that would link former school mates but the lists could not be shared with others. (Cassidy,...
