A Network can be an online service that focuses on building and reflecting of business networks or social networks among people. Most network services are web based and provide means for users to interact over the internet, such as e-mail and instant messaging whether it is in business or social networking.
Business is a social economic activity which groups of business people act upon business opportunities. Business networking is also a type of social networking but with an exciting reason for business activities.
Growth of social networking
Research shows that “two thirds of Britons already use social networks more than face to face contact to keep in touch with friends and family” I got this information from the Global Futures and Foresight report on social networking. People are sharing more about their lives online than ever before.
