1. Introduction

The Internet is visited by millions of people everyday and up until quite recently they visited websites, chat rooms and instant messaging to share and communicate with their friends.

Then came another sort of site - 'social networking'. For example Facebook, Bebo, MySpace, Twitter

Facebook started off at an University campus where a couple of students wanted to let their friends know where the parties and events were. It was extremenly popular at the Uni and it soon spread across the country and then the world. The 'social network' was born.
