Online dating people internet social
Sites like Twitter and Facebook are part of an internet phenomenon known as ‘social networking’.
They can be great fun to use and are an important part of many people’s social lives. Like any internet tool though, social networking can be used for harmful or criminal purposes. Social networking sites create a feeling of community.
This can be positive or negative depending on the nature of the community created.
Since users access these sites from their own homes, they can sometimes forget that the internet is really a public space.

Being complacent can be risky and parents and carers should make a point of setting ground rules ensuring young people can enjoy using social media safely and responsibly.Ensure accounts are set to Private, encourage children not to post photos containing anything which identifies the area where they live, such as school uniforms/badges or road signs. This includes posting anything that promotes crime, violence or drug misuse.To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.By the time of this interview, she had already given up and moved on, finally discovering her future husband while visiting old friends at her alma mater.

I got some commenting on my picture telling me how “hot” I was…how “good” I looked.
