Social networking sites nowadays are used for stalking, committing cyber crimes and other frauds.

I would like to thank you first of all for starting this debate because there is much controversy with social networking sites. In my argument I as (Con) will tell you how social networking is good and beneficial.

You stated that "Social networking sites nowadays are used for stalking, committing cyber crimes and other frauds"
Now sites such as Facebook, twitter and instagram have privacy settings. This is where you can choose what information about yourself can be publicized. Some people choose to give out there personal info, this is there fault, not the social networking's fault.

How is it beneficial?
People use allot of social networking sites to connect with people.

I will be giving you some examples.

*Social networking sites spread information faster than any other media.

*Law enforcement uses social networking sites to catch and prosecute criminals

*Social networking sites help students do better at school

*Social media sites help employers find employees and job-seekers find work
These are just a few beneficial examples.
