…on the for the Weeks of 01/26/2009, 02/02/2009, 02/09/2009, 02/16/2009, & 02/23/2009 :
What do you think of social networking sites for teens (MySpace, Facebook, etc.)? Do you like them? Why or why not?
message:i don't mind social networking sites. however, it takes
up a lot of time, which could be spent actually hanging with
friends or actually completing school work.
It can also be a hassle, as you are expected to keep up to date
such as signing up to another social networking site because all
your friends have it, which means more unnecessary emails and
constant editting and updating of each of the sites. It also
means you might have to start transferring all you stuff from
your old Social networking account to your new one. wasting even
more of your time. also it's also another reason to procrastinate. something that a
majority of 21st century students do.
however, i only like social networking sites because i can send
comments to my friends and share pictures. Also, i can find
friends whom i haven't seen in years.
message:I think that it's not the next big thing because why
would you have all that and have to be stuck to the computer when
you could just go talk to people! Please people just
message:they are not bad but i don't use them
message:I think they're stupid. If you want to make new friends, go out and talk to them in real life, don't just go and flirt with some creepy guy you've never met.
message:I think that they are cool. It's a great way to keep in
touch with friends or family that don't live close. It is also
procrastination personified. It's cool, but definitely something
that I could live without.
message:Well, i think its a good way for friends to get a-hold
of each other and stay connected. Although i think people should
care waht they put on there profiles cause it say alot about
found my account, my dad thought it looked cool and didn't mind
too much, but my mother was livid. She demanded I delete the
account immediately. So, naturally, I deleted it a week later.
For a while I was sad. All my friends were becoming members of
these sites, and I was no longer allowed. After a while, though,
I realized I didn't want to be a member of social networking
sites. I don't want to read somebody's profile to learn about
them; I'd much rather get to know a person the old fashioned way:
message:I think that social networking sites can be either good
or bad depending on the amount of security that is provided for
the subscribers. I enjoy going to myspace and fan fiction sites,
however these are sites that have various security measures in
place and that I feel relatively safe on.
