Begriff – What is Social Network
„A social network is a grouping of personal relationships that each of us establishes. As opposed to other types of networks, the value of a social network is not in the nodes of the network, which in this case are people, but in the relationships themselves. Social networking, therefore, is the act of building one’s social network.“
