Your Network is What You Make It

socialwebIf you’re like me then you’ve seen lots of comments on blogs about why one one social networking site  is better than another, but most of the time the arguments given aren’t about the sites them selves but about other users of the site, I’ve even seen arguments against sites which are a direct result of the users own actions. The following statements may seem like common sense but they are rebuttals to arguments I’ve heard on more than one occasion.

Please don’t complain about a sites network  being too public or less intimate if you’re the one adding hundreds of friends/followers whom you don’t know.

Every major social media site has privacy settings, its up to you to learn how to uses them. On that note, don’t post anything on the world wide web that you couldn’t stand to have made public.

Celebrities wont ruin your favorite network, the way they use it doesn’t have to change the way you use it, unless you feel compelled for some reason to do as they do.

Every network has its share annoying users, including your favorite one.

People are entitled to thir preferences, and many have legit and logical reasons for perfering one network over another, but if somone is going to make a case aginst a networking site then it should be against the site, not aginst some of its users, or the way others use it, or even the way they themselves use it.
