Social networking websites

We have produced a series of factsheets on adoption support and services. Our Social Networking and Adoption factsheet is particulary popular.

Social networking is having a huge impact on adoption as increasing numbers of adopted teenagers turn to the internet to trace and contact members of their birth families.

‘Social’ use of the internet means using it to find people, make links, communicate and share personal information, photographs and so on. Examples of social networking websites include Facebook and Twitter.
