Social networks are increasingly becoming important due to many aspects of everyday life supported and being facilitated through on-line activity. Billions of individuals are enjoying the use of social networks today and, therefore, they are becoming an important innovation in the modern world. However, due to disputes and concerns that are associated with such activities, the social networking world has yet to reach its full potential. When disputes occur in the on-line world, measures need be taken to settle those disputes in the same way that they were created. Through solving these disputes, the social networking world will be assisted in reaching full potential. One way of settling user disputes in the social networking world is the use of online arbitration. There are a number of advantages to using online arbitration as the parties involved will only communicate through the Internet and do not need to travel throughout the process. This helps in lowering the litigation costs to all parties involved. Considering the advantages online, arbitration has and the power that the social networking world bares, it is possible for users' disputes to be resolved and encourage communication between masses of users to build their confidence. With confidence that their disputes can be resolved easily, more users will be willing to publicise their profile for other users to view.
