[CHAT] Social Networking Sites

Being on social media sites can be a great way of catching up with friends, getting group assignments done and having a laugh!

And with more people joining social media sites, these great moments can be shared among more people in real time!

But social media isn’t always the great, fun and uplifting experience that it’s made out to be. The real time nature of social media means that bullies and other people wishing to cause harm can have easier access to their targets. It also means that it is very hard for someone to take back a post or delete something that might embarrass them later, as things can be saved, screenshots can be taken and people can be linked back to the post much later on.

Re: [CHAT] Social Networking Sites

Nice answer @scared01

I use a few different social media sites, here (Of course! Smiley Tongue ), Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram (I think that's about it)
I used them for different things so RO is pretty self-explanatory Smiley Tongue
Facebook keeping in contact with people and stuff, Facebook messenger is usually how I talk to a lot of people
Instagram is for my photography Smiley Happy
I would probably be using a form of social media everyday actually Smiley Surprised

Do you use social networking sites? How often? Which ones? 

I do, I use messenger/Facebook to talk to my friends but once every few days. I use tumblr and Pinterest every day and I occasionally use twitter.
