(Discuss) Proposed since August 2012. | A social networking service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on facilitating the building of social networks or social relations among people who, for example, share interests, activities, backgrounds, or real-life connections. A social network service consists of a representation of each user (often a profile), his/her social links, and a variety of additional services. Most social network services are web-based and provide means for users to interact over the Internet, such as e-mail and instant messaging. Online community services are sometimes considered as a social network service, though in a broader sense, social network service usually means an individual-centered service whereas online community services are group-centered. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, activities, events, and interests within their individual networks.

...influence of social networking sites on high school students' social and academic development Dissertation Author: June Ahn Abstract: This dissertation examines the effects of social network sites on youth social and academic development. First, I provide a critical analysis of the extant research literature surrounding social network sites and youth. I merge scholarly thought in the areas of Internet studies, digital divides, social capital theory, psychological well-being, identity development, academic engagement, and educational technology to understand how researchers might examine new social technologies and youth. Second, I examine the question of digital divide, or whether particular teenage populations do not have access to online social networks. Using a nationally representative dataset from the Pew Internet & American Life study, I explore whether there are disparities in teenage access to social network sites. Third, I report a cluster-randomized trial that was designed to explore whether social network sites have a beneficial impact when used in high school classrooms. A total of 50 classrooms, and nearly 1,400 students were randomly assigned to use an experimental social network site. The results highlight the challenges and potential of this technology when applied to school contexts.

...spheres of personal, social and professional human life. Wikipedia.org, 2012 cited that with the rapid growth of people who use or have access to the Internet, millions of people can stay connected together using the web provision called Social Networking Sites (SNSs). According to Chelly and Mataillet, 2012 that social networking sites are interactive web links that give people an opportunity to create, share and publish information, build communities and communicate around the world. Specifically, social networking is a common online activity that allows people to communicate with those they would not usually have contact with and this communication includes information, news, ideas, pictures, technology, cultural practices, and anything else that people can say to each other in face to face interactions (wikia.com, 2012). Moreover, SNSs provide place for other online activities like searching information, gaming, shopping, viewing videos, listening music, uploading and viewing pictures, reading posts, blogging, and online banking; and, those activities are positively the reason why many students are interested in checking out these sites (Asilo et al, 2010). Indeed, a study in the USA revealed that teenagers are keen users of the internet; 87% of teens aged between twelve and seventeen years use the internet, increasing to 94% for Year 11 and Year 12 students, (virtualmedicalcentre.com, 2011).

...As the world moves into the second decade of the 21 st century, one of the major markers of this era is the rise and use of online communities. In particular, a paradigm called Web 2.0 describes recent technologies that focus on networking mass numbers of individuals into distinct communities over the Internet (O’Reilly, 2007). Social networking sites (SNS) are online communities designed to connect individuals to wider networks of relationships, and are one major example of Web 2.0 applications. Sites such as Facebook have exploded in membership. In a short period of 2007 – 2010, Facebook estimates that its membership has grown from 50 million to over 400 million users (Facebook, n.d.). Online social networks are now an integrated part of daily life and compel questions of how these media platforms affect human development, relationships, and interaction. Teenagers are among the most avid users of technology in general and social network sites in particular (Lenhart, Madden, Macgill, & Smith, 2007b). Recent reports find that youth spend nearly 10 hours per day using some form of technology, with socially networked media playing a large role in their daily lives (Rideout, Foehr, & Roberts, 2010). New technologies are deeply intertwined with adult perceptions about teenage life. Mimi Ito and colleagues observe that, “Although today’s questions about ‘kids these days’ have a familiar ring to them, the contemporary version is somewhat unusual in how strongly it equates......

Effect of Social Networking on Academic Performance

...Chapter 1 The Problem and its Background Introduction Social networks are a popular trend today, especially among college students. This is where people can interact freely, sharing and discussing about their lives. Individuals and groups begin to engage in person-to-person conversation at these websites. They appear in many forms like blogs, microblogs, forums and many others. Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr are one of the many social networks that are well-known. The potential for computer networking to facilitate newly improved forms of computer-mediated social interaction was suggested early on. Efforts to support social networks via computer-mediated communication were made in many early online services, including Usenet, ARPANET, LISTSERV, and bulletin board services (BBS). Many prototypical features of social networking sites were also present in online services such as America Online, Prodigy, CompuServe, ChatNet, and The WELL. Early social networking on the World Wide Web began in the form of generalized online communities such as Theglobe.com (1995), Geocities (1994) and Tripod.com (1995). Many of these early communities focused on bringing people together to interact with each other through chat rooms, and encouraged users to share personal information and ideas via personal webpages by providing easy-to-use publishing tools and free or inexpensive webspace. Some communities - such as Classmates.com - took a different approach by simply having people link to each......

The Effects of Social Networking on Human Interaction

...The Effects of Social Networking on Human Interaction
 What is social networking? According to dictionary.com, social networking is defined as “the use ofwebsites or other online technologies to communicate with people and share information, resources, etc.” Social networking has become a must for many aspects of life. Human interaction often involves the discussion of something that appeared on a social networking website or the exchange of usernames for one to be found on a website. Many schools are incorporating the use of sites such as Facebook to keep students updated on events and homework, just in case the instructor had forgotten to mention something during class that day. A group of friends can make plans together over a group conversation since the number of callers in a multi-way call is limited. Clubs or organizations who need to spread the word of an upcoming event merely have to make a website or post a notice online and have people share it. There is less of a need for paid printed advertisements. Institutions and companies now give the option of applying online. But what has social networking done to the way people interact with each other? The way social networking changes how one interacts with others is no different from the way actual interactions change a person’s ability to socialize. Some, through social networking, have been able to create deeper and stronger relationships with other people, whether that relationship previously existed in some form......

Negative Effects of Social Networking

...Negative Effects of Social Networking Shelly Miner Western Governors University WGU Student #000246417 Negative Effects of Social Networking Social Networking or Social Media Websites (Social Networking) allow users to quickly share information and create online connections with other users. Despite the benefits, social networking can negatively effect us socially and can lead to undeveloped social skills and social alienation. Our intimate relationships can be negatively effected because social networking users can quickly find and communicate discreetly with others which can potentially lead to infidelity. Information posted on social networking sites can also have negative effects on current or potential employment opportunities. Social networks are intended to share information with everyone; this lack of protection can increase security risks such as identity theft, cyberbullying and computer viruses. Although each of these social networking sites offers attractive incentives and overwhelming popularity, research indicates that social networking can actually be detrimental because it has negative effects on social skills, relationships, employment, and security. Since their creation, social networking are rapidly changing the way we communicate, discover and share information and has become a crucial part of not only our personal lives but our professional lives. Social networking can be seen almost everywhere we go from retail......
