I think that God blessed the day the Internet was discovered and made known to man. Why? Because it has made our world feel more connected with all the comings and goings. It has afforded man the capability to inform and be informed in just one click. It has even brought long lost friends and family members back together again through the different social networking sites that have mushroomed. You just post your profile online, and you are able to search for your friends or they will find you themselves. It's like business card printing working electronically and automatically.
I have heard many stories of being able to find their relatives whom they haven't had contact with for more than 20 years and then were able to catch up on their lives through social networking. I have heard and read testimonies from my own friends who have benefited from social networking because they received moral support and were inspired by just even a simple status message.
Although social networking can also have its disadvantages because of other people abusing the information that they can access from these social networking sites, there is no denying the fact that it is generally good.
