One of the many gifts the twenty-first century has brought to the world is the use of social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. With the touch of a button, and a few seconds of our time, we can connect instantly with our friends, family, and communities. The use of social media sites has changed the way we communicate with the world as well as how we project our feelings onto others. Information is flowing faster than ever before because of these sites, and if you're not careful, you can unintentionally harm yourself, friends, or loved ones.<br></br>On the surface, social websites are fun, beneficial, and productive. But when you go deep into the pages of tweets, pictures, and comments, social media sites can be a frightening tool used against the user. I can write about the stalkers, pedophiles, bullies, and others who abuse these sites for their own selfish gain, but instead of just stating my opinion on how dangerous these websites can be, I would rather show specific examples of how average social media users can set up their own demise without even knowing it.
