« Before the invention of social networks, peoples communicated in writing through various media such as letters and mainly face to face or using more traditional means of communication such as radio, television, fax, telephones… Nowaday, communication is more in the social network.

Social networks have opened up new communication possibilities, but also many dangers. First, let’s see what a social network is and why we use them, then the different social networks and finally, their goals and their risks. A social network is a website that brings people together to talk, share ideas and interests, or make new friends. Social networks help people stay in touch with friends and family and are an easy way to find out what everyone is doing every day in your social circle.

They can also be used to find fun and interesting things on the Internet, as your friends and family often share the same interests as you. The first social network was created in 1995 by Mr Randy Conrads. Social networks can be classified according to different typologies.

First the pro social networks, which allow you to do business, and personally, which allow you to highlight more personal things.

Personal social networks include Facebook, Snapchat and TikTok.

Instagram and Pinterest are also part of it, although they are sometimes used for business purposes.

We can also distinguish the classic social networks from instant messaging, like Messenger or Whatsapp. Finally, we can prioritize social networks by format (written, photo, video, audio...) even if, here again, borders are blurred.

15 to 25% of young people on social networks are victims of cyber-harassment.

Challenges are also offered and are very dangerous and dangerous like the Labello Challenge, the scarf game and the Momo Challenge. They also create a real addiction, mainly among young people. On social networks, it is common for a user to impersonate another person by stealing their name, their photos, their content.

This is called identity theft. Many scams, false information and hacks are also present. In conclusion, social networks offer many advantages for communication but dangers are very present.

When we use them, we have to be careful and protect ourselves from them.

New things must be discussed to protect themselves.
