actually social networking is a superb thing. it keeps us in touch with our relatives in foreign and also helps to interact with our friends. it also allows us to share pics of our life and to share the joy!!!!!!!

Yes it allows us to interact with people but also exposes our personal information. For example, the con side just mentioned that we can share our photos with each other but those photos are seen by other people also and some of those people are criminals or you can just can say bad guys who can use to that photo for a bad purpose. Social networking reveals our personal information.

I respect ur comment my friend and thank you for giving me such a tough competition.
I think that u dont use facebook. there is an option called privacy settings from which we can allow only our friends to see our profile and pics.

The con just said that i dont use facebook. So there can be many other people who dont use facebook but can be their on other social sites which do not provide such facilities and also there are many people who have friends whom they dont even know. Such friends can be a problem. Even people waste a lot of time on social sites by simply chatting with unknown people on useless matters. Dont you thing this can be harmful.

Are social networks dangerous? Yes.
Are social networks helpful? Yes.

They are dangerous because people can post hateful things on them, hack accounts, cyber-bully, post embarrassing photos, etc. They are also bad because they distract people from their responsibilities (mainly adolescents). For example, a teenager can be doing their homework, when all of a sudden someone comments on their profile and they start having a conversation with them that lasts for two hours. Social networks can be addicting or hurtful, and therefore they are dangerous.

On the other hand, they are helpful because they allow people to communicate if they live far from each other and allow people to keep in touch with their friends. Also, they help communicate with friends or families in foreign countries.

This debate is a little tough, because it can go either way.
