Transcript of Social Networking

By: Rebecca G. + Lori K.
Social media are Internet sites where people interact freely, sharing and discussing information about each other and their lives, using a multimedia mix of personal words, pictures, videos and audio.

CompuServe was the first major commercial Internet service provider for the public in the United States. Using a technology known then as dial-up, it dominated the field through the 1980s and remained a major player until the mid-1990s.
The first email was delivered.



Out of town...
If you're leaving on vacation don't forget to lock the doors, shut the windows and ask a neighbor to pick up the mail and newspapers – then log off Facebook and Twitter.
Many police departments offer residents a "to-do list" when leaving their home for an extended time, suggestions that could reduce the chance of them becoming the victims of a Holiday burglary.
1) Minimal Effort Catch-Up

The format of Facebook allows users to catch up with friends and family with, let's face it, minimal effort. Posts are usually quite short (both to make and to read). One quick status update that goes out to all your friends, a short comment on a picture, or a quick "like" and you are done. Relationships that previously would have naturally died can be kept alive (sometimes on life support) on Facebook.

2) Lets Us Share Information With Many People Effortlessly

Related to the above point, Facebook allows users to share personal information with others more efficiently and with potentially better "net etiquette" than other forms of online communication. For example, rather than spam the email inbox of everyone you know with vacation pictures, the same photos can be posted on Facebook for friends to view if they choose to.

3) Appeals To The Info Junkie In All Of Us

As humans, we have an inborn and insatiable desire for knowledge and information - an infinite curiosity about the world around us. From the day we are born until the day we die, we are constantly looking for and acquiring new information. Facebook Addiction is partially driven by this never-ending desire for more information.

How to find a job on facebook
According to Alison Doyle, more people are using Facebook for professional networking and job searching than ever before. Here's how to find Facebook apps, like Branchout, that can help you tap your Facebook friends to help you job search and apps that will bring job listings direct to your Facebook page.
Uses of Facebook
According to Terra B. Jacobson Facebook has come to dominate the social networking site arena, more libraries have created their own library pages on Facebook to create library awareness and to function as a marketing tool. This paper examines reported versus actual use of Facebook in libraries to identify discrepancies between intended goals and actual use. The results of a 2009 study about the use of Facebook in libraries are used as a guide to gauge the perceived and actual uses for Facebook in this study. Results of the test reveal that the two ranks are not statistically different, but that there is a noticeable difference when looking at the perceived and actual rankings qualitatively.
Is Facebook addictive?
What makes facebook so popular?
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says the popular social network was not created to be a company. "Simply put: we don't build services to make money," the CEO writes in Facebook's SEC filing. "We make money to build better services."
YouTube topped one billion monthly users with 4 billion views per day, and launched paid channels to provide content creators with a means of earning revenue.

Facebook user total climbed to 1.11 billion.

Twitter had 500 million registered users, with more than 200 million active.

Yahoo purchased Tumblr blogging-social media network, with 170 million users and 100 million blogs.

Flickr had 87 million users and stored 8 billion photos,

Instagram had 100 million users storing 4 billion photos.

LinkedIn had 225 million users,

MySpace had 25 million users.

Pinterest had 48.7 million users,

Google+ had 343 million users.

What not to post
Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Friendster, Urban Chat and Black Planet are just a few of more than 100 Web sites connecting folks around the world who are eager to share their thoughts and feelings. But just like in real life, there's such a thing as sharing too much information (TMI). It's easy to get caught up in the social aspects of sites like Facebook, but what you choose to share is there for all to see if you don't limit who can view your information. The same study by Pew Research found that 40% of users have open access to their profiles, allowing anyone to view their information. The other 60% restrict access to friends, family and colleagues. Sharing personal information with strangers can be dangerous business, and there are some things you should definitely put on your "do not share" list.
It’s no secret that our social profiles can house the truth of who we really are. It’s also no secret pinochio lying that many people will lie, not only about who they are, but what they’re knowledgeable about, and what they do in their everyday lives from their profiles online. I can’t count how many social profiles I’ve viewed on Google+, but one thing many of them shared in common was that a lot of them were complete fakes! Today, the concept of pretending to be a professional on social media is an everyday trend, and the situation is likely to escalate as networks like Google Plus continue to extend their reach across the global web. Also, employers are now looking ever closer at social profiles, not just for job applicants either, but for those who they already employ.

Examples of Cyberbullying
How to get in trouble on facebook
According to a 2009 study by Internet security firm Proofpoint, 8 percent of companies with more than 1,000 employees have fired someone for social media actions -- a figure that is double what was reported in 2008.
Yet it probably comes as no surprise that Facebook firings are on the rise. Cases of employers firing employees for social media slip-ups have been consistent in the news over the past few years.
Rude text messages
Mean emails
Embarrasing pictures, videos, websites, or profiles
1. Feb. 26, 2009: A U.K. teenager was fired for calling her job "boring." According to The Daily Mail, Kimberley Swann posted comments such as, "First day at work. Omg (oh my god)!! So dull!!" and "All I do is shred holepunch and scan paper!!!" . Swann was fired after her boss discovered the comments.
2. May 17, 2010: North Carolina waitress Ashley Johnson was fired from her job at a Brixx pizzeria after posting a negative comment about two of her customers. Johnson called the customers -- who left her a $5 tip after sitting at their table for three hours -- "cheap." Though she did not mention the names of the customers, Johnson did include the name of the pizzeria in her post. A few days later, management called her to tell her she was fired for violating the restaurant's social media policy.

Twitter Jail
Twitter Jail is no tweeting if you've reached the limit of 100 tweets per hour/1000 per day.
You can access your page, you may not post publicly for a specific period of time. Anything from half an hour to a few hours.
Sometimes people refer to TwitterJail is someone get their account suspended. This can happen for various reasons.
Use of the LIKE button
It is a way for us to acknowledge something we agree with or find humorous when we really dont have anything to say about it.
Imagine a corkboard - the kind you might use to tack up inspirational quotes, magazine articles or photos of cool furniture for when you finally redo the living room. Now imagine your friends had boards too, and you could always see what each of you was tacking up on your walls. You could copy and memorialize whatever you found exciting, and your board never ran out of room. Plus, you could access it any time, anywhere.
Pinterest, an online platform that's been likened to popular microblogging site Twitter with images instead of words, allows users to curate all of the visually appealing things they find online. If you've ever bookmarked a cool-looking project or interesting recipe you stumbled upon during a Web-surfing session, only to forget what you named it or that you bookmarked it entirely, you'll appreciate Pinterest's highly visual design.
But Pinterest isn't just an Internet collage of cool stuff. Each image on the site links back to its place of origin, providing a simple and easily accessible channel for information as well as appropriate credit to the originators of the cool ideas that Pinterest users love.
Flickr is probably the most famous of all photo communities on the web.
It’s a place where photographers from all over the world come together, share their work and admire the work of others.
Flickr however, like any other social network, has its own economy and social conventions.
There are professionals, celebrities, enthusiasts, beginners, networkers, the list goes on.
LinkedIn provides an important outlet where work-at-home professionals can stay connected with the outside world, which is always a big challenge when you work from home.
Learning how to use LinkedIn is no more difficult than learning how to use any other social networking site – with a few caveats. Since LinkedIn is designed for professionals, a businesslike mentality is wise to keep in mind when working on a profile, adding updates, seeking introductions to new contacts and so on. Rather than offer cutesy games and tons of spam, those who learn how to use LinkedIn will find this particular site is geared specifically to professionals.

The site gains a new member almost every second around the clock and boasts members from just about every industry and country imaginable. Many Fortune 500 executives, in fact, are on LinkedIn. Many companies are too, and you can add your company profile to LinkedIn just like them, once you've set up your personal LinkedIn account and profile.
Google is no stranger to the social game. Back in January 2004, Google launched a social networking site called Orkut. At that time, the other name in the social networking space was Friendster. Myspace hadn't yet launched and Facebook was more than a year away from its first incarnation. But despite some success in countries like Brazil and India, Orkut never really caught on for the rest of the world.
That didn't stop Google from experimenting with social networking. In 2009, the company introduced an innovative platform called Google Wave. Wave allowed users to communicate in real time, sharing thoughts, links and files in a fluid, dynamic environment. Wave didn't really acquire an audience -- it was difficult to describe the service to someone unfamiliar with it and the limited beta program made it challenging to find people you knew who also had access to the service. Google eventually decided to stop supporting Wave as a standalone product.
