In the past, when we wanted
to meet our friends we had get together spots like beach, café, our respective
homes, theatres, bars, malls, etc ., Now all these places have lost their
popularity. Instead the present generation especially teens prefer to hang out
in virtual reality, “catching up” in the form of scraps and messages. One such
service which has gained the most popularity is Social Networking.
What is a Social Network?
Social Network is an
interconnection of individuals or organizations in a social setting.
Mostly they are used to keep
in contact with old friends and make new ones. There are various ways for the
users to interact. They can scrap and message each other, share pictures and
videos, join communities about subjects they are interested about and share
their views and opinions.
Few of the most popular sites
There has been 48% increase in
traffic to these sites in the past 5 years. And it is predicted that the social
networking sites will have even more important use associated with them and
will perform new roles.
Even now the facelift of the
service has begun with Facebook adding a blood group application which keeps
track of blood donors with specific blood types.
Few of the new sites like Qype,
Brownbook and Trustedplaces act in the capacity of local and national
directories where the review of a business can be added or edited for free.
