Social Networking what is this?

We have so many different ways to communicate with each other these days and social networking is one of them.  Have you heard of Twitter, Facebook?  These are just two of the means of social networking.

 

“… technology has not only mediated communication in countless ways, but … the very ways we communicate—and even the ways we talk and think about communication—are changing as a result.”1  

Social networking services can be broadly defined as internet- or mobile-based social spaces designed to facilitate communication, collaboration, and content sharing across networks of contacts.

People use social networking services for countless activities. Among the most common uses, however, would be to connect with existing friends, family and networks as well as making and developing new friends and business contacts. 

There is certainly a lot more to share on this topic, so will keep you posted.
