A social network is a social structure containing people who are part of the same group, just like a community or a neighborhood. Social networks work just as well in the offline environment. They are formed by people who meet each other frequently, such as in school or at their work place. However, these networks have few members, while the Internet is used by millions of people and a large part of them are interested to meet and bond online. This is why social networks use sites, as most of its members have at least one thing in common, such as the same hobbies, the same religion or political views. Once you start accessing these sites, you socialize (this includes looking at people’s profiles or even contacting them).

Are you among those who innocuously press the thumps up button on Facebook when you like a post? Well! It is time to give it a second thought. A recent research of the Cambridge University suggests that the Facebook likes can reveal a lot of traits about the individual like his political views, IQ level and sexual orientation.
The Famous Facebook Likes
Facebook first introduced the like option way back in April 2010 and since then it has gone viral, accounting to almost 3 billion likes each day. It is a parameter against which online campaigners measure the success of their promotions and it plays a vital role in the graph search application. We see every blog post almost screaming to the viewer to like it on Facebook. Log on to YouTube and you are sure to encounter requests such as – would you be so kind to like this on Facebook. Such is its reach and influence on the cyber space. It is almost habitual for us to like a post which captured our attention without any second thought. Well! Not anymore.
I don’t think anyone can deny the effect social media has had on the world. Not only does it monopolize the vast majority of our time on the internet, it has a habit of sneaking into our thoughts when we are away from our technology. When out of the country, or even when swimming or driving, we wonder what’s happening on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest; the prospect of not being able to access our favourite sites is a bitter one indeed. Even MySpace still has fans, even if they are few and far between.
More social media sites crop up each year, and while some are pretty successful (Facebook), others crash and burn. What is it about social networks and other media, that makes us sit up and pay attention? I mean they get bad press on occasion, and yet we still make time to tag photos, comment on peoples statuses, and blog about our inner thoughts.
