Social Networks

When we think of a social network – we tend to think about Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.  But social networks have existed for centuries.  Your family is a social network.  Your church is a social network.  Your classmates are a part of your social network.

The social networks online and offline can have a strong influence on shaping your identity.  Both shape identity.  A social network online can have just as much of an impact as real world, offline social networks.

When the new movie The Social Network comes out tomorrow, you will probably go and see it with someone from your social network.

Just saying.
