Social networking using Open source

What is Social Networking?

Basically, a social network is a structure made up of individuals, groups, or organizations interacting with one another. Social networks are linked by one or more particular types of interdependency, like likes, dislikes, interests, hobbies, values, ideas, friendships, romantic relationships, sexual relationships, visions, kinship, conflict, financial exchange, business and much more.

Social networks run on many levels: from the basic units of families, up to the level of nations. They are critically involved in the process of determining solutions to problems, the way businesses and associations are managed, the extent to which individuals become successful in accomplishing their objectives and much more.

The majority of social networks are web-based and provide users various ways to interact. These ways come in the form of instant messaging, email, audio or video conferencing, chat services, and more. Information exchange and communication have greatly improved as a result of social networking particularly for businesses. Businesses and companies have found that the use of social networks like Twitter and Facebook is an excellent way to build their brand’s image.
