Latent danger on social networks
We all like the Internet, or at least we have used it at some point, especially now in this period, but we rarely sit down to think if there is someone who is on the other side of the screen, or perhaps we could do some of The following questions Can anyone know what Internet use?, Will my connection be sure? Unfortunately this very difficult to know this safely, but we could take some precautions.
Many of us on more than one occasion have tightened an advertisement that we do not know very well what it is, whether accidentally or intentionally, to see what would happen what that announcement says is real, or also for when an article appears in Internet, be it news or a report from a site where we do not accustom to circulating, sometimes in the end there are very striking news that could even be said that they are false by just reading the title they have.
Unfortunately, most of those are false and there was someone who wrote that with the pure intention of misinforming someone who fell into that and changing their way of thinking or even putting their health at risk, depending on the subject that it was, since There are many articles are miraculous diets, which are not highly recommended by specialists in the subject. Unfortunately this is not alone on the Internet, but also on social networks.
We want or not all, or the vast majority of people, we use social networks, now it is practically impossible To look for work; But very few know the danger that may exist in them.
We usually use social networks to make video calls, chat with family or friends, but there is the case of networks that are used to search for employment such as LinkedIn, which is a network where one as a user can upload their work experiences, and if you are lucky. I find that this is great, since in this case the network I know that using with a good purpose, to give work to someone who may have been unemployed at that time.
Social networks can also be used for more leisure issues and not so much labor issues as it is in case of mentioned; Some years ago a social network called Amino began to popularize, which at least does not catch my attention, but I understand that many people do, this network is based on groups of fans and communities of people who interest them various topics; be series, artists, artists, music groups, etc.; where they can communicate here with people who have the same tastes or attraction as they. In this other case I find that this network is very good, since people help find more users with common interests.
Here I realize a problem with the networks, and it is of the privacy that exists in them, although we can choose who can see our profiles, and it depends on us this configuration, in most cases young people have it in private, But there is a large number where it is more difficult to control who can see the information; as is in the case of partially private,
But for Marañón, he sees that there is another danger within social networks, and he describes it as: the high technological training of our young people allows them, both to go to the university with their laptop to follow the teacher’s explanations, and connect to a social network from anywhere or when you get home, obviating, on many occasions, communication with your parents.
This sends us to reflect that there could be another problem when using the networks, and this is when we do not know how or when to stop, I mean that if we always pass by publishing what we do, we eat, where we are, etc. This is going to become a bad practice, added to the fact that we do not know who could see the publications; Little by little unconsciously we will start moving away from the people around us. In the end thanks to social networks we can approach people who may be physically far from us, but on the other hand at the same time they are moving away from those that are close to us.
There are also people who use them with bad intentions such as: spying on the Facebook account, or the platform they use, someone you know, but very few know that thanks to this practice you can go to jail, whatever anyone Your intention.
For this we can do some to avoid certain situations things such as, for example: be careful that we publish and when we do, this can be carried out with sharing the location, this depending on who sees the publication if it is someone with bad intentions can Entering our home while we are not, since because of the publication already knows that we are not in it, or also that the moment of uploading a photo of some food in a restaurant that goes up instantly can be interpreted as boasting from The possibility we have at that time or incite someone with bad intentions to assault us at the exit of the premises. Perhaps when saying this can be seen as something exaggerated, but this can happen.
Basically, with how broad the Internet and for the large number of users on social networks, the dangers that exist in them are avoidable, depending mainly on us. In the case of news or information that is reached, in most cases we can verify the veracity of the information we receive and we must also be careful since sources we obtain such information.
We must also not forget that it is the most important thing although thank you social networks we can keep in touch with people who may be very far away, we must not forget those around us, who are close to us physically. In addition to being careful what information we consume, we must also have caution with those who communicate through the networks, because although there may be many people with good intentions, also people with other intentions, with this I mean that in the end everything This depends directly on us.
