Over the past few years a dramatic increase in the use of Social networking websites, to the point in which it is considered unusually to not be part of one (or more) of them. Rather than attempt to explore a very specific section of social networking websites, I chose to look at some of the issues which have received some review over the past few years, and highlight some of the communication issues that result from the increased use of these websites. For this study, MySpace, Facebook and Friendster have been considered. Importance has been given to areas such as impression management, user profile, disclosure of personal information and role of these sites during the time of crisis. The paper suggests future areas of research.
