Abstract The study examines the potential security issues associated with social networking sites and the current awareness of students with these issues and threats. The study also describes the importance of introducing a model of best practice for students to ensure safe profiling. The literature review will be highlighting the different types of threats available and possible ways to reduce them from happening. Advantages will be discussed regarding the usefulness of social networks and how users can benefit from their use. The research methodology is a section that explains how the research was undertaken from conducting and preparing questionnaires that were completed by different aged students, ranging from secondary school students to university students. Semi structured interviews were also organised with different aged students. Using varied aged students meant that information and opinions could be gained on different topic areas with different perspectives. The study discovered that a large number of students were not aware of the potential threats and ways to prevent them.
