Researching the Connections

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.

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".
