My Experience With Social Networking Sites

 

I was introduced to the World Wide Web in 1999. However, I did not begin using internet until 2003.



I knew about social networking sites but I was not a member until my school time friend went to Australia. He sent me a request on Hi5. Since internet was the cheapest medium, I joined the site. However, I discontinued using Hi5 because I did not have internet in my home, and it was frustrating to spend time in the internet cafe. This was during 2006.

A year later, another school friend, who was in the US, invited me to join Facebook. I created an account, spent few months trying to socialize, and then deactivated my account.

I tried my hands in online writing in 2010. As I began spending time on niche content sites, I decided to activate my facebook. I searched my friends who were already on facebook and was connected with them. I also became friends with strangers.

My writing gurus told me social media membership was very necessary to excel as an online writing. I created account on twitter. As time went on, I found other social networking sites such as Google Plus, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Pintrest and became members on these sites.

Social networking is very important for a modern day man and woman. These days I regularly use facebook, google plus, twitter, and Pintrest.

      We all begin somewhere. I was getting invitations to join FB. I hesitated for a long time and finally accepted their invitation. I am there now but with limited friends. I do not accept all friends. My relatives do not belong there as I expect them to be in my real world (lol) And as for writing sites I first joined Rediff Q&A which was a question answer site and was there for 3 years. From there I jumped on to many writing sites that pay and here I am now enjoying this place.

      I have been on almost all the social media sites. Many of my close friends are the ones I met online. I use my social media accounts not only to promote my blogs but also to promote the vision of my spiritual master.

        Some of the greatest problems with working online is content stealing, privacy theft, hate war etc. However, I have survived all of these.
