WEEK 8.1 UPDATE

WEEK 08 UPDATE

April 25,

Hi all,

This week, I was in a hurry to complete the Annotated Bibliography. Because it was essential to read the articles and take the necessary information out of them. Even, while writing the literature review I paid more attention to plagiarism as we were supposed to take details from the research articles. Meanwhile. Now I can provide a conclusion for the bibliography. Overall, it is essential to follow the facilitated security settings in the websites by all the social network users. Nowadays, the social network website developers are putting an immense effort to provide high-quality security for the user’s sensitive information. They provide the security and privacy settings to the user to maintain it as they want. Yet, the poor knowledge regarding the settings or information technology some users are unable to use the given security facilities. The user awareness is highly expected in social networks to avoid the security issues. In addition, adults are advised to help the children or any user who got affected due to the bullying issue. Be that as it may, there are certain count measures to use the social network as solutions for the security issues. The behavior of the user, maturity of the children and technological consideration, user awareness are required to know before step into the social networks.

Regards,

Anushka

WEEK 6.2 UPDATE

WEEK 06 UPDATE

 

Hi all,

In this week, I had been identifying 14 research articles appropriate for the Annotated Bibliography. I found information regarding social networks issues with data analysing such as, the number of social networks uses, the age limits of the users and political usage in social networks websites. Further, with the immense popularity over the last years the users of the Social Networking websites gain an effortless opportunity to mingle with known and unknown people through internet. This has become an addiction to some of the youth users to maintain an account in social networks to sharing their personal stuffs with others and to find out about others’ lives. But, the way of writing the literature review is still not confirmed.

Hi all,
This week I was in a little bit hurry to complete several assignments. In simultaneously, I followed some journal articles within the busy schedules. Still I didn’t finalize the research articles to be used for the annotated bibliography. Hence, I followed several articles related to the topic. Then, I realized that the security issues in the social networks getting more exciting with novel research issues identified from the articles. At the beginning, there were four research issues as security issues, privacy issues, bullying issues and ethical issues. The followings are the new research issues and the scholar articles.
• Trust issues
• Political issues
• Identity theft
• Concluding thoughts of the youth
