Definition of Social Networking Sites
Social networking or social network is a social structure made up of
the nodes (generally individuals or organizations) that are tied by one or more
values, visions, ideas, friends, descendants, and so forth. This network shows
the way in which they are related because of the similarity of sociality, ranging
from those that are known from daily life to the family.
Various Kinds of Social Networking Sites
Facebook is a social networking website where users can join in communities such as city,
workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with others. People can also add their
friends, send messages, and update your personal profile for others to see about him. Facebook
was started by Mark Zuckerberg, 23, while he was a student at Harvard in 2004. The general
concept was to digitize the legendary freshman-year “facebook,” and allow students not only to
gawk at one another’s photos but also to flirt, network, interact. The site’s instant popularity
prompted Zuckerberg, showing a restraint beyond his years, to roll out the site to other colleges
rather than opening it up to everyone first elite schools, then more broadly. The mode of
expansion was itself ingenious because it forswore willy-nilly growth in favor of building
meaningful communities whose interlocking loyalties tied them more closely to Facebook.
Eventually, the site moved beyond college to high-school networks, then company networks, then
everyone. At the same time, it began adding features, most notably one last year that allows you
to track what your friends are doing on Facebook.
At the moment, Facebook is the site that, in my experience, comes closest to fulfilling the promise
of social media. In so doing, it raises some bigger questions about how we’re going to be using
the Web in the future and whether some of the received wisdom about the Internet that we’re
headed inexorably toward a digital universe of chaotic, endlessly shifting interactivity is true.
Various Kinds of Other Social Networking
