The study focused primarily on investigating the benefits and falls-down of social networking services-SNS and trying to illuminate the ways in which the „online‟ and „offline‟ worlds are mutually constituted, potential opportunities to extend and improve. Maximizing the benefits of social networking and promoting internet and media literacy may help protect young people from many of the risks of online interaction, such as cyber-bullying, privacy breaches and predation.
