– it’s a popular way of using the internet that makes the web simpler,
2 00:00:09:12 00:00:12:02 and more about you and your friends.
3 00:00:12:02 00:00:18:23 The great thing about social networking is that it lets you
see what your friends and family are up to, 4 00:00:18:24 00:00:22:12 even if they’re
not that good at keeping in touch! 5 00:00:22:13 00:00:27:16 Instead of them
having to write you a postcard, or even remembering to email,
6 00:00:27:17 00:00:34:06 they post photos, messages and updates onto a website page where
everyone can see them. 7 00:00:34:07 00:00:38:01 You can respond,
or put up pictures and messages of your own.
8 00:00:38:02 00:00:43:00 To get connected with social networking, you don’t
need a powerful computer – 9 00:00:43:01 00:00:49:03 just a device that
connects to the internet via a web browser, and an email address.
10 00:00:49:04 00:00:54:20 You can use a smartphone, a computer or
even some newer televisions, 11 00:00:54:21 00:01:00:17 but tablets like
the iPad are an especially great way to use social networking.
12 00:01:00:18 00:01:08:00 The most popular social network right now is Facebook – it
lets you share your photos and videos, 13 00:01:08:01 00:01:13:09 comment on things
other people have shared, and even send private messages.
14 00:01:13:10 00:01:19:23 And because Facebook has millions of members, it’s really good
at helping you find 15 00:01:19:24 00:01:23:03 long-lost friends,
or connect with your extended family. 16 00:01:23:04 00:01:28:10 Other social networks
include Twitter – which is all about sharing quick, short thoughts
17 00:01:28:10 00:01:30:13 and notes with a group of followers.
18 00:01:30:13 00:01:36:05 And then there’s YouTube, which specialises in video – it’s
where you can watch clips, 19 00:01:36:05 00:01:38:18 and upload your
own for all to see. 20 00:01:38:18 00:01:42:24 All these social
networks can be accessed through websites.
21 00:01:43:00 00:01:46:07 You visit them like any part of the internet,
22 00:01:46:08 00:01:51:02 but the difference is, once you get on,
you may never want to leave. 23 00:01:51:03 00:01:55:12 And the best thing
is that they’re all free to join. �
