Social Networks: Tuenti, ¿Entertainment or Addiction?

Tuenti is the preferred social network of Spanish teenager.
You can only join if they send you an invitation. Once your account is created you can choose the privacy of your own. You can write on your wall much like those of your friends. Look for friends by gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo and invite them if they are not Tuenti. You can upload photos Tuenti and add a title, add a group, tag your friends and write comments on them.
You can also see pictures of your friends and comment if they have been uploaded by one of your friends. To add them you need to send a message along with the friend request.
Look people in the search of people, as part of putting the name you specify a range of age, province, or is friends with your friends. You can also add your user videos uploaded to youtube and you can share with friends.
You can send private messages to your friends, but one by one,
and you can create events and pages, and invite your friends to them. You can also play various games.
By connecting reminds you of upcoming birthdays of your friends. And on the home page reminds you of upcoming birthdays and events.
When someone ask you for the friendship, you can accept or ignore it, and if you ignore it also gives you the option to block them will never ask for your friendship.
Although most users are teenagers, there are people of all ages.
Tuenti, increases in record time users, therefore, users spend 100 minutes Average online per day.What time is right for Tuenti not become addicted?
Also the connection is becoming more frequent as the blackberry or iphone are created with the function of the use of social networks.
What do you prefer, use Tuenti in a laptop or in a smartphone?
But the Tuenti also leads to obsession. This obsession is going too far for some boys, Tuenti has become a new form of entertainment and a new vice uncontrollable, but do we ever considered the possible consequences of being a member of Tuenti? Serious problems of identity, as well as numerous failures, poor little privacy and security, among others, are characteristic elements of Tuenti, but especially a serious problem: addiction. Upon arriving home from school, college or university, thousands of young people who are connected to check your comments or events. Tuenti social network has become, inadvertently, an essential tool for many young Spanish and can not be disconnected at any time.
If the Internet is essential in our lives, including study and work, why do you think that when we use Tuenti, old people say it is bad for us?

  25. Well, I suppose I'm one of the "old people" you talk about in your post. I must say that I don't use any social networks but I don't consider them to be harmful. In fact, millions of people of all ages, young and old, use Facebook every day. If I don't use them, it's simply because I don't have time to do it, and that's precisely what you should be very careful with, the time you spend on Tuenti. If you spend too much time, you neglect other important things, such as homework, studies, family, hobbies,... and once you are addicted to it, it's really hard to get rid of that addiction!

  26. Without a precedent, I agree with you Rafa, but I think you forget that when you were our age, think like us, you can not ask us now think like you, with the age that you have.
    So congratulation Vanessa, it is a good use of Tuenti;)

  27. I have a tuenti profile and I'm not so much addicted you know.
    And I also have a facebook profile. And a google plus profile....
