The Impacts of Social Network Sites: A Critical Overview
MetadataShow full item record
Connectivity is considered as one of the most desired preconditions of development in a world of technologies developed so far. Communicating using technology is important here. Social Network Sites (SNSs) enhance communication widely as they allow people to stay connected altogether. SNSs are something that create networks and bind societies together by bringing parts of a society together and bridging them. That is what these networks are supposedly doing. As ‘human cannot not communicate’ and ‘man cannot live alone’, this is why these sites are attracting people, and getting more and more popular day by day. Studies conducted worldwide indicate that people not ‘plugged into’ a social network feel ‘out of the loop’. But there are incidents out there that question the ‘all good’ ideas about these sites. Are social networks really making people ‘more social’? Are these sites all good? – These are the questions now experts are raising and examining throughout the world. There arises the question: what measures should be taken to settle that problem most effectively? – These are the concerns of this essay.
