Social networks are a great way to meet new people, learn the latest news and have a nice time for a new game.
Their diversity is sometimes frightening, and many do not see the difference between the most popular social services ...
What to choose a person who decided to start his socialization on the Internet?
Social networks: the amount does not talk about diversity
Today, the number of different social servicesFor the exchange of information and media content, it simply goes off scale: it is almost impossible to meet a person who is not a user of at least one social application or did not have a questionnaire in at least one of the popular social networks.
The vast majority of social networks haveThe same structure and serve the same purposes: people exchange messages, photos, video, and actively use the system of "likes" (like - positive feedback) and dislikes (dislike - negative feedback).
In fact, rarely this or that new social network has some kind of difference from its ancestors and offers its users something radically unique.
In addition to classic networks for the people, todayThere are about three dozen popular sites for people connected by common interests. So, special social networks for programmers or artists are popular.
Why do some people prefer facebook, andOthers - vkontakte? Why does someone use only "skype" (skype - a multifunctional program-service for making calls over the Internet), and someone prefers the good old ICQ-manager?
The thing is that a specific social networkCan meet the needs and preferences of a particular individual. By "preferences" in this context, most often mean design, interface and other features that can be called "not explicit."
For example, several automated studies have shown that the contingent of users of facebook and "classmates.ru" is on average 7 years older than the contingent of the site vkontakte.ru.
Social networks and the need to use them
With the development of the Internet and the means of information exchange, private data of many people become, rather, the common property of the whole world, rather than remain that "personal business" of everyone.
An interesting fact: as the number of users of social networks grows, the number of people who decide to give up any social services or publish personal data on the network also grows.
Some people events related to questions(Data published by Edward Snowden on the fact that the CIA spies on its citizens or the numerous materials of the WikiLeaks website) are also pushing to choose only one specific online tool that meets the goals and requirements of the user: Skype, icq managers, e-mail and Another highly specialized "software", the use of which is possible without the publication of its authentic data.
