"The rising dominance of social media sites means that users' lives will be increasingly more transparent, with full information about one's activities available for everyone to see -- parents and bosses included -- according to Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg."
(Clemmitt, 2009, p.2)
Today, society has adjusted the way they receive and process information. This is due to improved communication efficiency through channels such as: Email, Twitter tweets and other Internet-based communications.
According to Maria Clemmitt in an article about Social Networking, a study by the UK-based anti-virus company Sophos "found that 46 percent of people accepted 'friend' request from strangers. Nearly 100 percent of respondents posted their e-mail addresses, and 50 percent posted the towns they lived in, while 89 percent of Facebook users in their 20s posted online their full birth dates."
On January 25, 2011 Protesters in Egypt coordinated through a Facebook page, that had 80,000 followers, where organizers said that they were taking a stand against torture, poverty, corruption and unemployment.
Twitter also played a key role, with supporters inside and outside of Egypt posting using the hashtag #jan25.

"What he was doing shouldn't have been possible , but we see a lot of that out there and then something clicks. He was clearly super-smart and very entrepreneurial, a person who saw the world and the status quo as malleable."

Obama, first social media president
In Februray 2007 a friend of Marc Andreessen, who was the founder of Netscape and a board member of Facebook, called and asked if he wanted to meet with a man who had what sounded like a preposterous idea.
The man (Illinois Senator Barack Obama ) wondered if social networking , with its tremendous communication capabilities and aggressive database development, might help him beat the overwhelming odds facing him.
"Social Media is a group of internet-based applications that build on the ideological foundations of Web 2.0, and allow the creation and exchange of User Generated Content."(Kaplan & Haenlein, 2009, p. 61)
When a "friend" experiences either a tragedy or great accomplishment. People used to send condolences or congratulations in a personal manner (i.e. Sending a card or calling by phone). Today, individuals will send a test message, Facebook "wall post" or a "tweet" on Twitter.

-Now, individuals are becoming more comfortable with this behavior.
Myspace came about in 2003, as a social networking site and peaked in 2006. Unfortunately for them Facebook was opened to the public in 2006, which lead to the downfall of Myspace.

"It will be clear by 2020 that everybody has...skeletons (or nude photos or infidelities) in the closet, and it will be seen as absurd to make morality judgments based on these (Clemmitt, 2009, p.4)."
"By 2020 it will become... clear that.. privacy is the refuge of criminals and politicians," whereas free sharing of one's information "will be widely seen as a defense against the sort of world that existed in the past," when only the rich or powerful could get hold of others' personal information and often used it in abusive ways.
(Clemmitt, 2009, p.4)
Dictionary.com defines cyber-bullying as "the act of harassing someone online by sending or posting mean messages, usually anonymously."
