Social Networking Good Or Bad- Which One is It?

What do you think? Is social networking good or bad? Honestly, social networking is what you make it. Most of us make it as a fun way to communicate with friends and family, but what about using it to make money for our business? Does that sound like a good idea? I think so.

A lof of people are under the impression that social networking is bad and I understand why. I see a lot of them putting their business on blast:

1.Sexual preference

2. Spouce cheating

3. Making nasty comments on other people's walls creating drama

4. He say, she say

The list goes on for days. The ones that do these type things on social networking sites are the ones that make it a bad thing. Sad thing is, these people are nowhere the same type of person in real life. Everyone wants to a gangster, and the best way to go about it is on social networking sites. Why? I don't know. I guess because it's easier to express your true self when nobody is physically looking at you. Of course that's the wrong approach, the 20th century has changed in a most highly communicative way and people are not taking advantage of the opportunity.

What opportunity, Saytue? I'm talking about opportunity of doing something constructive, like make money.

There are two sides of every story, right? Here comes the good part about social networking sites. Once again, it is how you make it. Social networking is a beautiful thing when you're using it the right way. It's not for drama or blasting your entire life in the open. Originally, social networking was for communicating with friends and family, now it's a total business module. Use it properly, and you can make a whole lot of money on it.

There is no problem with having fun, but can having fun 100% make you money? I don't think it's possible on Facebook or Twitter. You can have fun on a movie set or even at the circus, but you still need to be serious about your job in order to make money. You can't expect to keep your acting career when you're sloppy and always messing up. That's not going to fly. So, what make you think social networking is just for fun?

What do you suggest your next move with social networking? For your business, the right approach will be to learn how to use social networking to your best advantage, so that you can build a solid business. It is possible, don't let others tell you different. Only reason why they tell you social networking is bad, is because they use it for a bad purpose or simply don't know how to use it for business.
