Online Social Networks-Privacy Issues

Online Social Networking sites have become one of the greatest social technological advancement in 21st century. But, most users are unaware of many of the privacy issues that come while having a profile over a social networking site. By placing information on WWW users make themselves vulnerable to hackers, selling their information to third parties and in some cases, websites owning everything an individual places on their profile page or friend's page including photos. The problem is intensified because of the fact that communicating online via social networking sites has become not only popular but also a fashion statement for youngsters, necessary to maintain their social status among friends.
