Facebook is not a threat but it’s the way you make yourself vulnerable,

With the growing popularity of social medias and social networking sites, the world is bombarded with sites like facebook, twitter, HI5, my space, google plus and many more. The trend has not only grasped from teenagers but has been seen as an addiction for adults. The platform of social network has grown so much that everything is possible from business to marketing and everything. Likewise, adapting technology, especially for a country like Nepal where there are more than 0.9 million facebook users, a serious question has been raised regarding the use and monitoring mechanism of web space. As the fraud cases and cyber bulling cases are increasing we are lacking behind with tolling number of cyber crime cases.
For instance anyone can log in and create a fake Id and harass anyone. Apart from that we lack technological awareness concept where we fail to recognize the concept and power of technology. I think a heightened program about awareness regarding facebook and its safety measures should be introduced under the computer subject or if possible some sort of interactive program be developed where student would be taught about the vulnerabilities and how to protect themselves.

Facebook is not a threat but it’s the way you make yourself vulnerable, because the next victim could be you.
