The advantages of them off course is able to connect with a long lost friend. Make Communication more easy and also playing apps and game could be quite fun. Finding new friend also an advatage of using social networking site. The downside of using social networking site is you share all you data with the world. Even if the social networking site have a privacy setting, but it not guarantee 100 % that your private data would be safe. Also, your status, photo upload and other could give you trouble like picture right issue, bos whose c your stat complaining about him, and it is to cut your communication with other when you want too. Ok thats it from me.

So far I have not seen any downside with it yet. I use it to communicate with my loved ones. Share photos and videos. You can also make use of it to earn referral from earning sites that you have joined.

There really are a lot of them out there. Even the forum sections of some of my survey sites start to become a place of social gathering sometimes. Seems like everyone jumps on the band wagon. A disadvantage that I had on myspace was too many strangers asking me to be a friend so they could reach a goal on some goofy app there like gardens or adopt a virtual pet or something. I accepted a lot of them and even downloaded some of the apps for awhile but it started to get way out of hand so I deleted most of them. The advantage of being able to keep in touch easily with out of state family and friends still remains though.

The advantages of social networking sites like facebook and myspace are that they make it easy to stay in touch with family and friends, and to hook up with old friends and classmates. I like getting updated regularly on what everyone is doing and updating them about what we're up to, too. As far as the disadvantages, sometimes you run across someone who you would rather not be in communication with.

To me it like having a conversation with someone in passing without the face2face. I'm sure that's coming soon in the social site area. While it already is in "Skye". Some sites like Tagged, HelloHello, Ning, Apsense and Twitter I enjoy because they're more user friendly. I still have some difficulties trying to understand Facebook pages. The advantages for me is that I can use them as a business network which is mainly why I join. Also, you do meet some great people on the sites. Disadvantage, is there are too many restrictions on some of them and I understand its only because of the design purpose like Twitter characters limits, or Tagged doesn't allow links in the conversation. Some sites allow any and everything.

i think one of the best advantages in social networking site like facebook etc is make us easily to contact to our friends,our family, or found again our old friends. sometimes several people use social networking site to promote their business , or blogs. another person sometimes use facebook to looking at their candidate wife or husband. one of disadvantages of social networking make their member become inefficent when they are working in office

I´m only now getting into it, I spent the last three years building downlines in the major traffic exchanges. And I must say I like it. The funny thing is I'm now eager to meet new friends, respond to posts, and have my posts responded to - I NEED the contact after all the social dehydration. I'm like somebody who spend a long time in the desert, and now finds himself at the banks of a beautiful river. Besides. the way trends go, it appears the most effective way of promoting your business - no, I haven't forgotten my online business! But priorities seem to shift, I constantly check my mail whether there has been any 'action' as far as my posts are concerned, friend requests, etc. Good luck to you.

There are lot of advantages and disadvantages in joining with social networks like facebook. I know we can meet our friends frequently we can share our moments and everything, that's the good thing but now a days lot of students waste their valuable time by vising and chatting unnecessarily. We all know that now a days lot of social problems have been arise because of these social networks
