Barbara, thanks. It's always better to have a defined limit for everything. There is no need to open our doors for strangers. Moreover, it's good to keep a different level of strong passwords for different sites based on, how the account is important.

Hi, Barbara 

I also think adding more social networks to all the already existing ones would be too much, and impossible to handle. 

A dozen passwords sounds too much. Are you using your favourite book as storage place? Why can't you use duplicate letters? I would also find it impossible to remember so many passwords if I would have to change them every 90 days. What about using a password generator? Some encrypt passwords, too.

@Jacob: agreed. I limit my fb logon to "fun" sites, such as forums on TV shows, movies etc. The truly "social" part of my life; professional is a different story (and passwords)

Barbara, you have to compromise in somewhere. I don’t want to provide or leave any FB credential to any unknown sites for login, so I use to create a new login with a password. But in most of the cases password for all such unknown/unwanted websites may be the same with some identification. So there won’t be any issue of forgetting password.

Waqas, you meant various filters. No negotiations will take place over any social media networks and final negotiation will happen around the desk (face to face).

Jacob Glad you asked. I mean that there are or are required such forums where buyers and sellers submit the specification of goods they need, prices they are looking for and the terms of agreement. Those forums/websites like other websites earn from advertisements but the main objective of the website is not to give their users reviews and promotions about products.

Greg: That's a great idea! I haven't even visited Google+ and in spite of all the buzz, I know few people that do. A business app is a great way to recap the investment (if Google isn't getting its ROI. I suspect it isn't, at least on this product).

Jacob: I like that feature too, but I have concerns about FB security and use of user data. as much as I hate passwords, they are advisable, especially in a business environment.

Barbara, now a days in most of the community of social networking sites, there won’t be any need to create a new login or to remember passwords, because they are using Facebook login modules for authentication and authorization. Am not sure how much it’s safe to leave our Facebook credentials with such unknown third party websites. So I would always prefer to create new login ID and password.

"But forums where actual negotiation takes place are rare and most wanted. "

Waqas, actual negotiations- am not getting what you meant by negotiation. Normally reviews and promotions are taking place through social medias.
