Wikipedia definition - A social network is a social structure made of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes," which are tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as friendship, kinship, financial exchange, dislike or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige
Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision,
When your connections invite their connections, your Network starts to grow.
Your Network is your connections, their connections, and so on out from you at the center.
How do you classify users?
Your Network contains professionals out to “three degrees” — that is, friends-of-friends-of-friends. If each person had 10 connections (and some have many more) then your network would contain 10,000 professionals.
