network? Wikipedia definition-A social network is a social structure made of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes," which are tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as friendship, kinship, financial exchange, dislike or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision, if you will.

Social Networks Not a new concept, (6 degrees of separation) Ramsey theorem-At any party with at least six people, there are three people who are all either mutual acquaintances or mutual strangers People typically maintain 10-20 close relationships among thousands of acquaintances Metcalfs Law value of a network increases n2 to # of participants Not exactly, but in theory. Dependent upon interaction model

Online social networking Social sites commonly used. Online community of internet users Common interests in hobbies, religion, or politics. Socialize on sites by reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.

Origin of social sites Social network sites (SNSs) such as such as Friendster, CyWorld, and MySpace allow individuals to present themselves, articulate their social networks, and establish or maintain connections with others. These sites can be oriented towards work-related contexts (e.g., LinkedIn.com), romantic relationship initiation (the original goal of Friendster.com), connecting those with shared interests such as music or politics (e.g., MySpace.com), or the college student

population (the original incarnation of Facebook.com). Popular social networking sites

We measure Social Network in terms of: 1. Degree Centrality: The number of direct connections a node has. What really matters is where those connections lead to and how they connect the otherwise unconnected. 2. Betweenness Centrality: A node with high betweenness has great influence over what flows in the network indicating important links and single point of failure. 3. Closeness CentralityThe degree an individual is near all other individuals in a network (directly or indirectly).

It reflects the ability to access information through the network . Why internet is popular mean for social networking The Internet is powerful because it bridges distance at a low cost When people first meet online they tend to like each other more Less stressful than face-to-face meeting

Types of social networkers Alpha Socialisers (a minority) people who used sites in intense short bursts to flirt,meet new people, and be entertained. Attention Seekers (some) people who craved attention and comments from others,often by posting photos and customising their profiles. Followers (many) people who joined sites to keep up with what their peers were doing.

Functionals (a minority) people who tended to be single-minded in using sites for a particular purpose. Source: Ofcom Social Networking Sites research, September-October 2007

Privacy concerns Social networking sites provide privacy options but users are generally unaware or tend to ignore such concerns Stalkers, terrorists, ill-doers, con-artists could benefit from such issues Recent scandals-England :MI-6s directors wife puts up photos of family on facebook.
