Why Social Networking Isn't Really Social

            From children to adults, we are all using social network more and more as the evolution of smart technology is rapidly swelling. People saw convenience and enthusiasm in social networking that connects with friends, family and even strangers through Facebook or Twitter, and watch videos from YouTube that were posted 100,000miles away by clicking the mouse of desktop computers or even with a touch of the screen of a smartphone. Social networking and smart technologies so closely connected with each other that it could be impossible to live without them. Mark Zuckerburg, the founder of Facebook quoted, "Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They're keeping up with their friends and family, but they're also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They're connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It's almost a disadvantage if you're not on it now." I personally agree with Zuckerburg that social networking brought these self-identities to people and interaction through social networking to connect people. But, he is defining only the positive outcome of his company.
             There are plenty of social networking services in America and throughout the world however, it was Facebook that started to dominate all over the world. Later on, more SNS (Social Networking Service) were introduced, such as Twitter, YouTube and Instagram to compete in different strategies. So how do dictionaries define social networking? According to the Oxford Dictionary, social networking is defined as, "The use of dedicated websites and applications to interact with other users, or to find people with similar interests to one's own." Yes. This is the random definition to everyone that hears this vocabulary, however we are missing the concealing meaning of social networking, which is "social".
             Human beings are the most socialized animals in our planet.
