"Proponents of social networking sites say that the online communities promote increased interaction with friends and family; offer teachers, librarians, and students valuable access to educational support and materials; facilitate social and political change; and disseminate useful information rapidly.

Opponents of social networking say that the sites prevent face-to-face communication; waste time on frivolous activity; alter children’s brains and behavior making them more prone to ADHD; expose users to predators like pedophiles and burglars; and spread false and potentially dangerous information."

Whatever side of the fence you are on there is no doubt that social networks are rapidly becoming the norm as people realize that they can stay healthy without completely having to rely on the medical establishment.

The paradigm of healthcare is changing rapidly ..........thanks to the Internet.
