Another reason is to locate long lost friends and family members. So, if you are looking to keep in contact with friends and family or looking for a long lost friend or family member, social networking is a great way to do that.

Are Social Networking Websites Safe?
The answer to that question is yes and no. It is all according to how you use the social networking website. You should use caution when using the sites and not put anything personal on them. I would highly recommend you keep your profile private. Not keeping your profile private will allow any and everyone to see your profile. That is not safe. You should not add people to your friend’s list that you do not know. Change your password often because there are people out there everyday hacking into social networking sites.
