Social Networks: A Worldwide Unification

Social Networks have grown massively the past ten years and continue to evolve everyday.

Where would we be today without social networks? Social networks and all that comes with it have completely engulfed our society as if a large bear consumed a salmon. The difference? This indulgence has made the world more connected than it has ever been before. People now can simply connect with the click of a mouse, regardless of how far away the distance may say, and the world is slowly growing closer with every stroke of a key.

Twitter and Facebook. These two international networking giants have become the thread for all of the world's people. Twitter and Facebook not only allow people to come in contact with each other but also complete work that otherwise, ten years ago, would have only been possible through face to face contact. These networks have allowed organizations to spread their word in seconds and slowly draw the world full circle to the goals of which they hope to complete. These networks can help raise awareness for the problems of which the world faces and also can report news from all across the globe with in seconds. These social networks have slowly become a mainstay in almost every individual's life and have slowly spread to nearly every square mile of not only America but the world. It has now even spread to the youth.

People as young as age 12 now have profiles or accounts on these networking giants. Parents may consider these networks damaging to the minds of our youth but at a glimpse, social networks have now grown to be essential to the futures of all. Everywhere you look, these sites have been used in many fields. Medical to business to sports to science, nearly any possible career field has begun to use these sites. So now ask yourself ... are these social networks truly harmful? For me and many I know people have varied opinions at first, but when truly thinking about it, they agree that social networks are one of the most beneficial opportunities for anybody. The earlier the youth are exposed to these divine pieces of excellence and masterful connections, the better suited they will be when they grow to become adults. To reach your full potential nowadays, you will almost certainly have to use social networks at some point in life. Twitter and Facebook draw the world together as one, regardless of age, sex, race, or marital status. 

Families all across the world now are only a click away and for that, unity is much more realistic then ever before. We live in a world where globalization is occuring at a rapid pace and in order for globalization to be positive we must accept social networks for what they are, what they can achieve, and the impact they have on our lives every single day.
