Thousands, if not millions of students immediately turn to social networking to be able to complete their homework (for them). For students today, they forget the need to filter the information they post.

No matter what we are doing, we will use it. A social networking site can be defined as an online service. Social networking sites include Faceable, Friends, Twitter. It allow us to have an account to meet new friends, entertainment and moreover. Although there are a lot of advantages, but in my opinion, it brings more harm than good.

More Good Than Harm First of all, let us understand what it is we are debating here.
We are debating social networking sites. Not Just one or two specific sites, like Faceable, or Namespace, but social websites as a whole. So let us put forth a strong definition to fit the topic. Social Networking Site: Any websites which facilitates communication between two or more individuals. – communication between human beings, online, rather than websites allow for human interaction over great distances. They allow people globally to connect with one another, share ideas, express desires, form bonds of friendship, and discuss similar interests.
We live in an age where if someone feels alone or isolated, quickly using a search engine like Google could bring you to a forum of people who share your same feelings, alleviating the pain of solitude. Social networking sites allow humans a place to retreat to after a hard days work, or a long day of school. Indeed, the only difference between a social networking site and a gathering of friends in a public space is that using the website makes it easier to connect! – To blame social networking sites for something that others do is misplaced blame.
The existence of these websites do not force companies and employers to do what they do, they do it of their own desire. And taking away social outworking sites will not prevent this from occurring, employers will simply look elsewhere, as they have done, for information on their potential employee. They’ll call relatives and references, and gain information about you that way. And in older times, when communities were smaller, they would ask around the town for information. So the actions of employers to seek out information on their candidates for hire is nothing new, and cannot be blamed on social networking sites.
All these websites do is give employers another potential source of information about you. Most social networking websites will not give rise to his kind of problem, because most websites allow for the creation of “Surnames”, or names specific to an online site. I am sure, for instance, my opponents name in real life is not “shack”, nor is mine “The Chaos Heart”. These are fake names, or online names, made for a specific online environment. Most social websites you encounter on the web will be structured in such a manner, allowing for someone to construct surnames for themselves rather than use their real names.
