These sites allow us to stay in touch and interact greatly with our friends, relatives and near and dear ones. These sites allow us to share photos, videos and message each other and stay connected in a variety of other ways. However, there is a flip side to all these advantages. This comes in the form of online social networking dangers or what is commonly known as Social networking online dangers. These dangers maybe varied and may stem from a variety or reasons. The primary reason for these dangers to be present is the freely accessible profile and the related personal fats about the person that are put up on his profile. Due to these facts, a person is often vulnerable to outside stalkers and online hackers who use this information to their advantage.

The online social networking sites are giving rise to a new breed of people called online junkies. As the name suggested, these people can always be found online, at any hour of the day. Unless urgent steps are taken by the parents or well wishers, the person loses all interest in the outside world and just spends his life online, doing nothing but online networking.

Some social networking sites also have a feature called people search. This feature helps you to search foe people who have a web presence. You have to enter the name of the person who you intend to find and the search engine will deliver the names and addresses of the people who closely resemble this name and address given by you. This particular feature has been a recent invention and not many social networking dite contains this feature. However this feature has been the most dangerous of all features because of the fact that this feature allows you to search any person on the net and gather information about him. This feature hence has been, and has the potential to become a very big threat to online security. This feature has become more dangerous by the invention of the photo search feature in the social networking sites. People photo search allows you to search for a person online through his photograph and hence gather information about him. In most of the cases, the photograph is clicked on the sly and then used to gather information. In this way the persons privacy and online security is greatly hampered.

Social networking sites allow you to visit other peoples’ profiles. These profiles are so created as to attract a maximum number of people. These profiles often contain pictures of users.

Things are not as simple as choosing a school or a college as a choice of choosing a job from the many available to us is one of great importance. You will not only earn your livelihood, but can also spend the better portion of your life in such jobs. It is hence very important to get some outside help in selecting a job fit for you.

We often turn to friends and family to help us in choosing the job best for us. We trust them and hope that they will be able to guide us. There are however limitations to their knowledge and hence we may end up making less informed decisions. The one thing that can help us in such situations is hence, the social networking job recruitment sites.
