La invasión de las redes sociales en México

Por: Tomas Abarca 

Utilizar redes sociales no sólo es la última tendencia que ha brincado desde internet a la sociedad. El tema es de gran relevancia pues de acuerdo al último estudio de la Asociación Mexicana de Internet (AMIPCI) publicado en Noviembre de 2009, existen en México mas de 30 millones de usuarios de internet, de los cuales 18 millones cuentan con un perfil en redes sociales; eso equivale a 18 veces la población actual de la capital de Sonora, Hermosillo.
En cifras reales, el cibernauta mexicano utiliza dos redes sociales como media eligiendo como favoritas Facebook y My Space, seguidas muy de cerca por Twitter la cual ha tenido una gran expansión durante los primeros meses del 2010.
Por otra parte, los adultos entre los 25 y 40 años son los más activos y representan el rango de edad que tiene mayor crecimiento como segmento participante en este tipo de páginas. Se calcula que cada usuario de internet en nuestro país emplea un total de cuatro horas al día para mejorar su perfil en redes sociales.
Asimismo, el tiempo que le toma a un sitio de este tipo para ganar popularidad en nuestro país y penetrar en su mercado es de tres años
¿Cuáles son las ventajas de utilizar redes sociales?
– Fomentan una comunicación rápida, eficaz y económica.
– Permiten mantener contacto con amigos y familiares que viven en otros lugares del mundo, además de brindarte la oportunidad de conocer gente con gustos similares a los tuyos.
– Ofrecen la posibilidad de compartir archivos que van desde música, vídeos, hasta direcciones web e imágenes, de una manera rápida y sencilla.
– Borran las fronteras geográficas otorgando la posibilidad de establecer contacto con personas en cualquier parte del mundo.
– Ayudan a hacer conexiones dentro del mundo profesional, con colegas y expertos en las más variadas disciplinas.
– Posibilitan el acceso a información actualizada acerca de temas de interés, además te permite participar en foros de discusión, tener presencia en actos virtuales y conferencias especializadas sobre algún tema determinado.
– Permiten el trabajo en equipo cooperativo entre personas ubicadas en distintas ciudades.
Algunos Inconvenientes:
– Pérdida de privacidad: al publicar información personal en los formularios de registro que se llenan al inscribirse en este tipo de sitios.
– El medio de comunicación tiende a ser impersonal, es un humano interactuando con una máquina que a su vez interactúa con otro individuo.
– Suplantación de identidad: un usuario sin escrúpulos puede crearse fácilmente una identidad diferente a la propia.
– Creación de altos niveles de dependencia, según la personalidad del usuario.
– Plagio de contenidos desarrollados por otros usuarios de internet.
– Los perfiles pueden ser utilizados por criminales para recabar información sobre sus futuras víctimas en delitos como: secuestro, acoso, abuso sexual, tráfico de personas y trata de blancas.
– Falta de control sobre el uso que se le da a la información publicada en estos perfiles de carácter público.
– Son en algunos casos canales de difusión de materia violento, racista, sexista y xenófobos.
Redes sociales en el mundo
Por otra parte existen, a Septiembre de 2009 según datos de Google, 1.73 billones de usuarios de internet en todo el mundo. Un informe elaborado por la consultora InSites devela que actualmente hay en promedio 940 millones de personas registradas en servicios de redes sociales por Internet.
Las más populares según el número de visitantes mensuales son:
– Facebook, fundada en el año 2005, con 260 billones de visitas.
– My space, inaugurada en 2003, con tráfico de 24 billones de usuarios.
– Twitter, que inició operaciones en 2006, actualmente tiene 4.4 billones de “tuiteros”
La más famosa, según su cantidad de afiliados es Facebook , con un estimado de 500 millones de cuentas alrededor del mundo.
