What is a social network
It occasionally happens that, while talking to friends, I start using words specific to my job and our type of work. In my case, I often talk about communities and social networks, and we all know these are being used by more and more people everyday, and I am always need to be reminded that these terms do not mean the same thing to everyone. Especially if the people I am talking to come from different backgrounds with different web experiences.
Social networks and ruby on rails
Social network? What is it all about, what is the goal?
The simple answer would be: It’s about connecting people, creating a space where people can share the same interests. It can be everything like dating, dancing, studies and so on. Social network is the new reason for people to spend hours on internet everyday. The most famous social plate-form of the moment is for sure Facebook and this success inspire lots of companies to create their own social website, to build their own graph of users. It’s such a big potential for companies.
