Everyone has heard of social networking web sites. Social networks such as MySpace and FaceBook. Most people who are on line all around the world have at least one account with one of these many, many social networks. They permit members to find long-lost friends, stay in touch with family and create new contacts in places or even countries that they have never visited
When you sign up to one of these social networking sites, you will get asked to fill in account details. These details have nothing to do with a bank account. Rather they are what most members call their ‘profile’.
This profile can ask quite detailed questions on the pretext that the more information you give, the easier it will be for your friends to find you, should they become searching.
Typical questions are name, age, sex, address, schools attended, location of work, musical interests, hobbies, likes, dislikes, Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail address book passwords and user names. They also want a photo.
