Nowadays, there are many of the list of social networking that existed and sometimes it follows the trends and the needs. let start from the first social networking that have been used in my life until now. i'm jus a "kampong boy' that did not anything about the internet until one of my friends introduce me to friendster before. At that moment, i'm in form 4 when all the social networking came out and i did not anything about it until he exposed me to them. After that, i become insane with that and all of my friends do same things to at that moment.
Later on after i finished my SPM, i went to college but i still further with this sort of things and at college mysapce and facebook become popular and friendster become the last in the top position.
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, financial exchange, dislike or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige.
Social network analysis views social relationships in terms on network theory about nodes and ties. Nodes are the individual actors within the networks, and ties are the relationships between the actors. The resulting graph-based structures are often very complex. There can be many kinds of ties between the nodes. Research in a number of academic fields has shown that social networks operate on many levels, from families up to the level of nations, and play a critical role in determining the way problems are solved, organizations are run, and the degree to which individuals succeed in achieving their goals.
