I have been wondering what the benefits and pitfalls of social networking are.
Is it a good thing - sharing your network of friends and associates? I guess it can be...6 degrees of separation and all that.
But I also wonder if it cannot be used a a tool for revenge...retribution and 'getting even'?
I mean, if you can be nice, then obviously you can be not nice.
And in these networks of contacts the viral spreading of tales, tittle-tattle and scurrilous rumour-mongering must be as proliferate as the spreading of words of joy, hope and "come buy my product/service".
