Social networking: the ninth multiple intelligence

Introducción

SOCIAL NETWORKING

Currently, social networking has become an important part of our daily life, providing us with groups of different websites and applications which allow us to create and share content, connect, communicate, and interact with other people, or even we can use them with a business purpose. That is why, it has become another multiple intelligence, since a lot of people have access to it and manage different applications for multiple objectives. However, although social networking has several advantages, it has also presented some disadvantages to take into consideration when we are going to use them. For this reason, it is essential to use these websites appropriately overcoming the challenges that it presents and taking the most of the opportunities that it give us.
