About someone else's term project

Dipen's presentation on the use of social networking in the work place was a very well thought out presentation. I learned a lot from it and i believe it was an important subject. There were a number of things he touched upon in his presentation. One of those subjects were why do businesses rely on Myspace. Like all other social networking websites, businesses use these sites because they are extremely popular. They can reach to a large number of people with little effort. In the beginning of social networking, businesses used Myspace but now, Facebook has taken over the throne. Twitter is also used by businesses for mostly promotional purposes. Companies are able to announce specials, sales and other promotions. It can also be used for survey reasons. Linkedin is a newer social networking site. It's more professional and companies use it to find possible employees.

There are many advantages with social networking in business. They can be used for promotion, contracts and to stay more connected.

The disadvantages would be that privacy an data leakage. Computers are easy to hack in and having valuable data can cause harm to the company. Also, workers can spend a lot of companies time and money using social networking sites.


  1. All new media has its advantages and disadvantages.

  2. Obviously, most of the all invented things have pros and cons.

  3. The question is does the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?

  4. Good and bad always come together, they are two inseparate components.
