Problem Solving

1.       My next steps would be to record it and then if I perceived it as a threat I would call the police, if I didnít think it was a threat I would block the sender.

2.       Unsolicited friend requests happen all the time on Facebook. I would just ignore the friend request. If it kept happening I would block them.

Internet Research

1.       The first social media site I researched was Facebook. It required full name, date of birth, an email, and personal security questions to make the account more secure. The second was Twitter and it was the same personal questions. I had no issues with giving up any of the personal information but I am not really a private person so I donít think it matters. The content was more or less the same. People telling anyone who likes or follows them about what they do or think. They both are easily accessible to casual users. They feature a sleek and simple GUI system which allow a pick up and use type of webpage while the massive audience that use these two sites is perfect advertising for businesses. Both websites allow for posting media. There seems to be no limit to what can be posted or how many things can be posted. The instructions are very straightforward and allow for quick and simple uploads.
