A socialnetwork service consists of a representation of each user (often a profile), his/her sociallinks, and a variety of additional services. Most social network services are web-basedand provide means for users to interact over the Internet, such as e-mail and instantmessaging.

  17. 17. CHM COLLEGE IMPORTANCE OF MOBILE & SOCIAL NETWORKINGWhat is Social Networking?Social Networking has become very popular during the past few years, but it can still bevery difficult to understand for someone new to social networking. The open-endednature of social networks add to this. Once signed onto a social network, havinganswered a few basic profile questions, it is easy to sit back and wonder what you aresupposed to do next.The easiest way to understand social networking is to think of it like high school. Youhad friends in school, and you knew quite a few people even if you werent friends withall of them, but its likely that you didnt know everyone.If you ever moved to a new school -- or if you can imagine moving to a new school --you start out with no friends. After attending classes, you start meeting people, and asyou meet them, you begin associating with those that have similar interests.Getting started with social networking is much the same as starting at a new school. Atfirst, you dont have any friends. But as you join groups, you begin to meet people, andyou build a friends list of those with similar interests. Page | 17
  18. 18. CHM COLLEGE IMPORTANCE OF MOBILE & SOCIAL NETWORKING Social Networking Architecture Social networking is based on a certain structure that allow people to both express their individuality and meet people with similar interests. This structure includes having profiles, friends, blog posts, widgets, and usually something unique to that particular social networking website -- such as the ability to poke people on Facebook or high-five someone on Hi5. Profile: This is where you tell the world about yourself. Profiles contain basic information, like where you live and how old you are, and personality questions, like whos your favorite actor and whats your favorite book. Social networks dedicated to a special theme like music or movies might ask questions related to that theme. Friends: Friends are trusted members of the site that are allowed to post comments on your profile or send you private messages. You can also keep tabs on how your friends are using social networking, such as when they post a new picture or update their profile. Friends are the heart and soul of social networking. It should be noted that not all social networks refer to them as friends -- LinkedIn refers to them as connections -- but all social networks have a way to designate members as trusted. Groups: Most social networks use groups to help you find people with similar interests or engage in discussions on certain topics. A group can be anything from "Johnson High Class of 98" to "People Who Like Books" to "Doors Fans". They are both a way to connect with like-minded people and a way to identify your interests. Sometimes, groups are called by other names, such as the networks on Facebook. Page | 18
  19. 19. CHM COLLEGE IMPORTANCE OF MOBILE & SOCIAL NETWORKING Discussions: A primary focus of groups is to create interaction between users in the form of discussions. Most social networking websites support discussion boards for the groups, and many also allow members of the group to post pictures, music, video clips, and other tidbits related to the group. Blogs: Another feature of some social networks is the ability to create your own blog entries. While not as feature-rich as blog hosts like Wordpress or Blogger, blogging through a social network is perfect for keeping people informed on what you are up to. Widgets: A popular way of letting your personality shine through is by gracing your social networking profile with web widgets. Many social networks allow a variety of widgets, and you can usually find interesting widgets located on widget galleries.Why Start Social Networking?Social Networking is a nice form of entertainment, great for meeting people with similarinterests, and can be a very effective business technique for entrepreneurs, writers,actors, musicians or artists.Most of us have hobbies, or things that we are keenly interested in such as books,television, video games or movies. Social networks allow us to reach out to others thathave the same interests.For example, if you like movies, Flixster can help you decide if you might like a newmovie just out at the theaters. If you like music, Last.FM can help you find new artiststhat are similar to your favorite bands.Social Networking: Its the way the 21st century communicates todaySocial networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communitiesor a neighborhood subdivision, if you will. Although social networking is possible in person,especially in the workplace, universities, and high schools, it is most popular online. Page | 19
  20. 20. CHM COLLEGE IMPORTANCE OF MOBILE & SOCIAL NETWORKINGThis is because unlike most high schools, colleges, or workplaces, the internet is filled withmillions of individuals who are looking to meet other people, to gather and share first-handinformation and experiences about cooking, golfing, gardening, developing friendshipsprofessional alliances, finding employment, business-to-business marketing and even groupssharing information about baking cookies to the Thrive Movement. The topics and interests areas varied and rich as the story of our universe.When it comes to online social networking, websites are commonly used. These websites areknown as social sites. Social networking websites function like an online community of internetusers. Depending on the website in question, many of these online community members sharecommon interests in hobbies, religion, politics and alternative lifestyles. Once you are grantedaccess to a social networking website you can begin to socialize. This socialization may includereading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.The friends that you can make are just one of the many benefits to social networkingonline. Another one of those benefits includes diversity because the internet givesindividuals from all around the world access to social networking sites. This means thatalthough you are in the United States, you could develop an online friendship withsomeone in Denmark or India. Not only will you make new friends, but you just mightlearn a thing or two about new cultures or new languages and learning is always a goodthing. Page | 20

This means that anyone can become a member, no matter whattheir hobbies, beliefs, or views are. However, once you are inside this onlinecommunity, you can begin to create your own network of friends and eliminate membersthat do not share common interests or goals.As Im sure youre aware, there are dangers associated with social networking includingdata theft and viruses, which are on the rise. The most prevalent danger though ofteninvolves online predators or individuals who claim to be someone that they are not.Although danger does exist with networking online, it also exists in the real world, too.Just like youre advised when meeting strangers at clubs and bars, school, or work --you are also advised to proceed with caution online.By being aware of your cyber-surroundings and who you are talking to, you should beable to safely enjoy social networking online. It will take many phone conversations toget to know someone, but you really wont be able to make a clear judgment until youcan meet each other in person. Just use common sense and listen to your inner voice;it will tell you when something doesnt feel right about the online conversations takingplace.Once you are well informed and comfortable with your findings, you can begin yoursearch from hundreds of networking communities to join. This can easily be done byperforming a standard internet search. Your search will likely return a number of results,including MySpace, FriendWise, FriendFinder, Yahoo, Facebook, Orkut, andClassmates.
