Social networking is an innovation that has exploded in usage in a very short time span. You can now enjoy constant correspondence with friends from all parts of the world without ever having to leave your seat. In many ways, social networking is much better than all other forms of communication put together because of the wealth of information that can be exchanged in a very short time For instance, you can keep in touch with a friend who is travelling around the world; you can use smartphones to chat and the occasional video stream when said friend comes across something whose beauty cannot be aptly put into words e.g. a sunset, a colorful festival etc. This will allow you to experience a part of the world you never knew existed without ever having to heave your house.
