Pros and cons on dating
Before Facebook, it was difficult to follow what your friends were doing.
You could write emails, and before that letters, but the sense of proximity that people get by reading comments and things friends share and seing their pictures on the social media is something never achieved before.
Although these platforms make communication easier and more flexible with those far away, they can have the opposite impact on our relationships with the people we live with.
Likewise some social networks specialized in dating help people meeting others and often establish long term relationships.
Finally, social platforms, such as netivist, help to promote public participation and civic engagement.
People have new means to express their views and defend causes they find worth fighting for.
Now through social networking sites we often engage in discussions and can establish friendships with people very different from us.
Some social media even facilitate people meeting face-to-face.
Social networks allow us to keep in touch with people that we meet at different points in our lives and reconnect with old friends that we may have not seen in years for various reasons.
