Many people especially the teenagers enjoy going on social networking websites to chat with friends online in the virtual world. What many people do not know is that making friends in the online world has both its negative and positive effects.
One of the positive effects that why people want to make friends online is so that people can still keep in contact with their long lost friends who stay far away from them. Some make friends online so that they can share their pictures and videos with each other.
Following on, people vent their feelings to their online friends as they feel that it is less embarrassing.
Negative effects are that when people post their personal information online, many do not know that some users will use their personal information to do illegal activities. Teenagers make friends online so that they can chat with random strangers online to waste their time away. From my knowledge, most people want to make friends online with people from different countries so that they can learn the different cultures of different countries and have a broader knowledge of the culture of different parts of the world.
Well, it is true that sometimes making friends online is good but there are times when making friends have its negative effects. When making friends online, we do not know what the real person looks like and sometimes we may be in danger of getting scammed by these online users to give them money for “emergency” purposes. Thus making friends in the virtual world may not be exactly a good thing as you never know that you may be in a risk of being in danger.
Think before you intend to make friends online in the virtual and make a wise decision. Engaging with friends in the online world has both its negative and positive effects.
