Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Are Social Networking Sites Good for Our Society?"
"In my book, The Future of Reputation (available online for free at http://futureofreputation.com) I spend a considerable amount of time talking about all the good attributes of social network sites. My position is that they can be used to cause harm even though they can also be used for many good things.
The question you ask [Is social networking for society?] is way too broad. It's kind of like asking: 'Is industry good for society?' and then listing all people who complain about pollution as cons.
So you could put my answer as 'Pro AND con' which would be much more precise."
Experts PhDs (and other Doctorates), MDs, and JDs who have conducted extensive research related to social networks, and national government officials with significant involvement in social networking issues. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
