Welcome to Social-Networking.org.uk.

This website contains information regarding the uses and abuses of social networking sites. It was developed as a product for a final year major report at the University of Huddersfield.

Social Networking Sites (SNS) have gained a huge amount of popularity over the last decade. As of 2010 there were more than 10 billion social networking accounts online world wide with nearly 4.5 billion of these active. With almost all of the educated youth using at least one of these sites they have played a vital role in bridging boundaries set by our environment and creating a means of communication on a common platform.

This website contains information about the uses and abuses of social networking sites and displays the material in a single location. The purpose of this is to make the everyday social networking user more aware of what they are involved with, to allow them to see the potential behind social networking and more importantly to protect them against the risks involved.

Using the navigation bar on the left hand side you can read up on the different uses and abuses of social networking and also post your own views and experiences using the ‘Spread the Word’ blog.

Thank you for visiting.
