Social Networking is a phenomenon that has officially grown out of control. It means that literally. It has grown to the point where neither the users nor the social networking companies themselves can control these monsters that have been created. It reminds of the movie Jurassic Park where a wealthy older man, wanted to build something no one else had ever done: a fun theme park combined with a zoo of cloned dinosaurs. It built what it thought would be adequate security, but in reality, it didn't understand nearly enough about the environment it was trying to control. People naturally trusted that proper security was in place and that they would of course be safe.
