What is this "Social Networking" thing?

Many questions arise when the words "Social Networking" is mentioned in conversation. Most people don't understand or have no clue how to go about setting up a social network account. 

Here is a brief explanation from of what social networking is and how it can work for you and your business. 

Social networking services” refers here to a wide-range of rapidly developing services tools and practices. 

Social networking services can be broadly defined as Internet- or mobile-device-based social spaces designed to facilitate communication, collaboration and content sharing across networks of contacts.

Social networking services allow users to manage, build and represent their social networks online. Services usually (but not always) include other individuals; they might also include the profiles of events, companies, even political parties. They may let you add anyone in the network as your friend or contact, or they might ask both parties to agree all connections.

Social networking services typically support the public display of networks, although they may offer privacy restrictions or facilitate closed communities. Permissions are a very important feature of most social networking services. They allow members and groups to control who can access their profiles, information, connections and spaces, as well as determining degrees of access.
