A Social Network, Part 2

by The H.E.A.T. Exchange

A social network is a community, or group, of different people interacting with one another.

Eliminate either people or interaction and you do not have a social network.

Particularly, a group of people without any interaction is a community, but not a “social” community. Interacting is a principle need of any social community.

No amount of photos, videos, blog posts and the like can make a network social without people interacting with each other, even if it is via such content.

For any social network to work, there must be emphasis on people interacting with people.
