Social Networking, well this is networking with a slight twist. It’s “virtual. It’s the way the 21st century communicates today. Want to know what it really means? Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision, if you will. Although social networking is possible in person, especially in the workplace, universities, and high schools, it is most popular online. This is because unlike most high schools, colleges, or workplaces, the internet is filled with millions of individuals who are looking to meet other people, to gather and share first-hand information and experiences about cooking, golfing, gardening, developing friendships or professional alliances, finding jobs, and biz-to-biz marketing. Topics could be as diverse as the universe to infinity and beyond!
When it comes to online social networking, websites are commonly used. These are what we know now as “social sites.” Yes, there are still some out there who are clueless as to what social sites much less networking means.
The friends that you can make are just one of the many benefits to social networking online. Another one of those benefits includes diversity because the Internet gives individuals from all around the world access to social networking sites. This means that although you are in the United States, you could develop an online friendship with someone in Denmark or India. Not only will you make new friends, but also you also just might learn a thing or two about new cultures or new languages and learning is always a good thing. And it becomes more lucrative.
