Wikipedia says; The term 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, or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige. The resulting graph-based structures are often very complex. There can be many kinds of ties and research in a number of academic fields has shown that social networks operate on many levels, from families up to the level of nations, and play a critical role in determining the way problems are solved, organizations are run, and the degree to which individuals succeed in achieving their goals.Wikipedia® Foundation Inc.
