Social Networking (mySpace, FaceBook, Linked In, Twitter, etc.)

Networking with Friends

Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups. Although social networking is possible in person, it is most popular online. The internet is filled with millions of individuals who are looking to meet other internet users to develop friendships and business relationships, too.


When it comes to online social networking, web sites are commonly used. These web sites are known as social sites. Social networking web sites function like an online community of internet users. Depending on the web site in question, many of these online community members share a common interest such as hobbies, religion, or politics. Once you are granted access to a social networking web site, you can begin to socialize. This socialization may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.
