Is Social Networking really as dangerous as its projected to be?

Given a choice, I would prefer sitting in front of a computer logged in to one of the popular social networking sites. I love reading what other people have to say about their parenting, culinary skills, some event in their life, what are they upto at the moment, etc.,

Of course, there is a possibility, we may be revealing a bit too much for someone's comfort or our discomfort. But is it such a huge risk that it could jeopardize our lives or cause huge mnetary losses from which we could never recover?

Your experiences/thoughts on this matter will be very helpful.
