We have discussed the advantages of Weibo and social networking, however it is like a coin with two sides. These addictive social networking websites come with their highs and lows. Below we will discuss the disadvantages of Social networking websites.
One of the biggest drawbacks of social networking websites is to know the genuine and authentic information. These websites are full of information, these websites have unlimited amount of information on all of the products, however it is difficult to figure about the authentic sources. As discussed above it is very easy to connect with other people however to know that a profile is genuine or not is tough. In Weibo there have been cases of fraudulent pages. Some people create fake profiles of others and then they also interact with these profiles. Sometimes it is just impossible to differentiate between original and duplicate profile. If the other person is their friend then it is easy, people can contact them over the phone, however if the other person is not their friend then it is really difficult to identify the fake profile.
