Social Networking

Hi guys,

There are different platforms of social networking through online communities. And for this course we are trying to try out a few of these platforms. I myself, have created so many different accounts, sometimes it really hard to keep up with all these profiles.

Also I would be concerned about giving out a lot of personal details online. It takes me big courage to publish photo’s in these profiles as well. As Herve had stated in his blog – about ID theft through public profile.

It is very important to be aware of such activities that happen through online social networking. I personally use a few – but keep limited information and photos. Social net working would seem not that safe due to some of these hackers.

It comes to each individual taking risk on putting their personal information online, and who has access to it.



  1. What advice would you give people about preservering their identity without restricting their online networking?

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Thats a very good question, what I think is is important is who is able to access your online information, for example having an open account that any one can view would not be sucha good idea. It should be only accessible to those whom you allow to be part of that network.

    So while choosing networking sites, its also good to see what features it has to protect individual information.
