Nowadays, lots of people love using social network websites. Even those who aren't very good with computers can use these websites to stay in touch with what's popular. A social network is like a special website where people can make friends who like the same things they do, do the same activities, or even go to the same events in real life. The one that most people like is called Facebook, and it's growing really fast. But before Facebook, there was another one called 'Hi5' that lots of people used. Facebook became more popular than Hi5 because more people started using it.
Besides Facebook, there are other websites like Twitter, Google Plus, and Instagram that people also enjoy. These websites let people make accounts for free, and then they can connect with people from all over the world. There are special settings that help people keep their information private and stay safe from people who might bother them. Regular people can use these websites for free, but if someone wants to use them for business, they might have to pay a fee to the people who own the websites.
Using these social network websites makes it easy to talk to each other. Even if someone is far away, they can still talk to their friends and family. You can share pictures and videos, so you can see what your friends and family are up to. Some websites, like Facebook, let you chat and even talk on a video call, which is like talking face-to-face but on the computer.
As long as people are careful and don't use these websites too much, they can be really helpful and fun. They help us stay close to the people we care about, no matter where they are.
