The term social network was originally coined to distinguish between networks that were used for business purposes and those that were used for socializing. The term has been extended to include interactive websites with message boards, chat rooms or the ability to leave comments and have a discussion with other people. Examples of websites that are primarily used for socializing include Facebook and MySpace. Many companies have their own Facebook pages and use them to promote products.  Consumers get the feeling they are actually interacting with these companies, which is of course an illusion. The websites are supposed to be fun; that was the original purpose. But many concerns have arisen as they have become more popular. There are also privacy concerns. Your information can be viewed not only by your friends, but also by companies, spammers, thieves and perhaps your potential boss. There are ways to reduce your risks and still use the social networking sites but you have to be careful.    The good news is that there are hundreds of social networking and informational sites created for the softer side of humanity.  Networking sites where peace and love are promoted; helping the jobless find work, activism in food industry, alchemy, ascension, and metaphysics. What you'll most likely learn is that you're not alone - and that's what social networking is all about, right?

Social networks and the analysis of them is an inherently interdisciplinary academic field which emerged from social psychology, sociology, statistics, and graph theory. Georg Simmel authored early structural theories in sociology emphasizing the dynamics of triads and "web of group affiliations." Jacob Moreno is credited with developing the first sociograms in the 1930s to study interpersonal relationships. These approaches were mathematically formalized in the 1950s and theories and methods of social networks became pervasive in the social and behavioral sciences by the 1980s. Social network analysis is now one of the major paradigms in contemporary sociology, and is also employed in a number of other social and formal sciences. Together with other complex networks, it forms part of the nascent...
