Abstract

Web applications have dominated the concerns of most people because they take a lot of their time. Among the most prominent of these concerns is the social networking that is available through social network applications on the internet. Social websites have impacted heavily on social and national identity as well as on the social bonding within the community. Why does the social network matter? Human nature is generally social and people like to live in a community rather than in isolation. Social networks play this role electronically by connecting people as a community regardless of the distance. Evidence shows that these applications are attractive and have a strong influence in various areas.
The deductive approach has been used in this chapter which analysed texts relevant to the subject of the study. Descriptive documentary in the collection of information from sources and references associated with the subject of the study described and employed an approach to describe the phenomenon as list of the diagnosis and detection aspects to determine the relationship between elements with a prospect for the future and predict scientific outcomes.
