I have to create a short documentary on why social networking is an effective tool and how there are many good sides to it, this short interview will help me a lot to get my point across and has given my some very good ideas for arguments. Too many people are too close minded to see that there really is a very good side to it and just listen to the media instead.
Thank you!

At last i have found a video that says social networking has a positive benefit. The effects of social media would depend on how an individual uses it. Too much of something can be harmful.

This was kinda common sense when social networks began on the internet….

rayofminneapolis says:

say 10 years behind the early adapter/ enthusiast curve?

rayofminneapolis says:

Remember in 1995 when chatting on AOL and emailing with hotmail was thought of as anti-social by the socialites? But Internet natives just thought, well whatever, they don’t know what they’re talking about, and are really missing out.
Looks like digital communication is socially acceptable and even educational now that everyone over 40 has discovered Facebook.
Still I’d say, for high schoolers, the risks of Myspace outweigh the benefits. Lets be discerning here.

jollyfellow25 says:

nice talking girl however the content isn’t really new.

NeoTifasRevenge says:

This totally looks like an 80s video, but what’s funny is that it’s from 1998 LOL :)

GAKtion64 says:

@jejeroy well as you can see at 1:08 there is a copy of half life so this is more like the socket 7/slot 1 age.

vbpeepee says:

@panzerkampfwagen123 HAHAHA if everyone uses the same crowbar, then they can save money! 🙂

coldironhands1 says:

vbpeepee says:

LOL companies using multi-user licenses for saving costs on Half-life! 😉

TravvyG says:

Damnyounoob says:

Adobe Premiere 4.2…hmm… this movie was probably shot in 1995-97

maxsuperdudeisawesom says:

coldironhands1 says:

I showed this video to my students, i think it’s the most informational video out there for any person trying to become a CCIE

jejeroy says:

whahahahahahahaha its was like in the time of the 486 with a 10mpbs network

djphonehome says:

OLD

aminex says:

seems like an old video, switches are replacing hubs now

deuspraiser says:

there still widely used.

jamesadsett91 says:

The only thing having 10GBPS netowrk is you would probably need solid state hard drives, I mean, not even internally can a HD write at 10GBPS!!

fahmid123 says:

those who doesn’t want to get there wireless network hacked…now u are thinking that i could install some security software or a firewall which will keep my network safe from hackers, this may be the case but it will not keep out a well determined hacker, not wireless networks are safe, all of them can be hacked and i mean all of them..and yes i use a
hub for my home network 😉

emenentia says:

Who still uses hubs… seriously….

Smashed1 says:

Fucking Half Life was on there. Haha. That’s awesome.

monerjanala says:

good for basics

megaboy84 says:

okay, but the basics are still the same,
i need to find something on wirless routing though

supadupakoopa says:

lol, the pc game half-life is on the shelf when hes talking about network software

boz76 says:

this frustrates me.

megaboy84 says:

If only the wifi connection speed would be as quick as the lan connection speed.
but the way things are put together are relativeley the same.

Rhimmer says:

Yeah that is true the only thing that has improved is the speed from 10Mbps to 100Mbps to 1Gbps and soon 10Gbps.

megaboy84 says:

the computers they use are generic, but the way things connect really hasnt changed all that much
