CommonCraft presents... Social Networking in Plain English Networks get things done. Whether it's sending a letter or lighting you home, networks make it happen. To get from Chicago to Santa Fe, we need to see the network of roads that will get us there. We see that Chicago is connected to St. Louis, which is connected to Dallas, which is connected to Santa Fe. Of course, people networks can help us with finding jobs, meeting new friends, and finding parnters. You know how it works: Bob is your friend, he knows Sally, and Sally's friend Joe has a job for you. This is a network of people, a social network. Yaaay!! The problem with social networks in the real world is that most of the connections between people are hidden. Your network might have huge potential, but it's only as valuable as the people in the connections that you can see. Boo!!!! This problem is being solved by types of websites called social networking sites. This websites help you see connections that are hidden in the real world. Here's how it works: You sign up for a free account and fill up your profile. Then you look for people you know. When you find someone, you click a button that says "add as friend". Once you do this, you and that person have a connection on the website that others can see. They are member of your network, and you are member of theirs. What's really cool is that you can see who your friends know, and who your friends' friends know. You're no longer a stranger, so you can contact them more easily. This solves a real world problem because your network has hidden opportunities. Social networking sites make this connections between people visible. Like a map for a highway, they show you the people network that can help you get to your next destination. Whether is a job, a new partner, or a grat place to live. Your network is suddenly more useful. You can get started at this sites: Linkedin, Facebook and MySpace.
