Using Internet

Using internet to research for information is easy as it is rather user-friendly for basic uses such as writing blogs, messages on forums and emailing friends etc, on social media for sharing photos etc. The worries have always been on being flamed on internet for reasons sometimes that can be rather unclear, or untrue rumors spreading on the web among netizens if one becomes more well-known on the internet such as the group, bloggers or internet models. The worst can be when one's opinions get questioned by authorities ( not debating on whether right or wrong as this is dependent upon each perceptions ).

As I get more and more active on the internet by updating my status on social media like facebook and twitter, there are many times, strangers from faraway countries who would add me in as contacts on the internet or follow me or write to me directly, I often have this concern if they have ulterior motive, which is illegal or for frauds to gain financial advantages at the expense of others, other than these, if it is purely for the motive of befriending, I really welcome this as it is also a learning experience to have overseas internet "pen-pals".
