Social Networks - Social Media


A Social Network is a social structure made up of a set of social actors (such as individuals or organizations), sets of dyadic ties, and other social interactions between actors. The social network perspective provides a set of methods for analyzing the structure of whole social entities as well as a variety of theories explaining the patterns observed in these structures. The study of these structures uses social network analysis to identify local and global patterns, locate influential entities, and examine network dynamics.

Not everyone uses Social Networks the same way or thinks about social networks the same way. Some use it for different reasons then others, and also think about it differently then others. There's not a standard operating procedure for social networking, it is an experiment that is in the early stages, and some experiments produce positive results and some don't. People understand the importance of communicating, but not everyone understands how to use language effectively or efficiently. We know that language helps us transfer knowledge and information to ourselves and to others, but we don't fully understand the process, or use language accurately in order to maximize the benefits that should come from every conversation, and come from every act of communication. Language is the most powerful tool that we have, but we are literally just starting to talk. We are like 5 year olds with a long way to go, but we are growing up faster and learning faster then any other time in human history.

Schools need to teach a class on Social Media, which would be a combination of communication skills, relationships, human phycology and media literacy, to name a few. People are getting too stressed out from using social media. A lot of people are using social media incorrectly, they're comparing themselves to a platform that is not a verification, judgment or measurement of a persons worth or value. It is simply an advanced communication tool. And a person using advanced tools needs advanced understanding of these tools, which means they have to learn a lot of knowledge and skills in order to use advanced technology effectively and efficiently. There really is no replacement for learning, it is a responsibility that everyone on this planet shares.

We know that there is a lot of time being wasted on the Internet. But we cannot ignore the enormous amount of time that is being saved by the Internet or the enormous amount knowledge that is being gained every second over the Internet. Abuse of technology is not unique to the Internet, because all technologies are abused. It’s great that everyone can have a voice on the Internet. Millions of people want to communicate and want to be heard. But not everyone is communicating for any particular benefit or purpose. Some people just want to be famous, some people just want to make money, some people just want to entertain themselves, and some people just want to say hello to friends. This causes a lot of distractions on the Internet with some areas being over saturated, unorganized and misused. But because of the Internet, people will continue to get wiser and start realizing the potential that the Internet offers. Individuals on the Internet will eventually form communities and turn into groups that can focus on particular subjects, particular causes, particular problems and particular solutions, as they do today. 

How could we become so connected and yet be so disconnected at the same time?

Internet Addiction

Besides showing us how many people there are who love to waste time, one of the most astounding things that
Social Networks reveal is that there are millions of people who have enough computer skills to communicate with each other on a massive scale. And those millions of people can literally change the world, that's if everyone worked together as a team, and at the same time doesn't get infiltrated and manipulated by the selfish and paranoid powers that be.

Social Network Analysis is the process of investigating social structures through the use of network and graph theories. It characterizes networked structures in terms of nodes (individual actors, people, or things within the network) and the ties, edges, or links (relationships or interactions) that connect them.

Dunbar's Number is a suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. These are relationships in which an individual knows who each person is and how each person relates to every other person.

Social Netwoks Enterprise Social Software comprises social software as used in "enterprise" (business/commercial) contexts. It includes social and networked modifications to corporate intranets and other classic software platforms used by large companies to organize their communication. In contrast to traditional enterprise software, which imposes structure prior to use, enterprise social software tends to encourage use prior to providing structure.
Social Networking Service is an online platform that is used by people to build social networks or social relations with other people who share similar personal or career interests, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections.
List of Social Networking Websites
Social Media are computer-mediated technologies that allow individuals, companies, NGOs, governments, and other organizations to view, create and share information, ideas, career interests, and other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks.
New Media most commonly refers to content available on-demand through the Internet, accessible on any digital device, usually containing interactive user feedback and creative participation. Common examples of new media include websites such as online newspapers, blogs, wikis, video games and social media. A defining characteristic of new media is dialogue. New Media transmit content through connection and conversation. It enables people around the world to share, comment on, and discuss a wide variety of topics. Unlike any of past technologies, New Media is grounded on an interactive community.
Social Network Aggregation is the process of collecting content from multiple social network services, such as Instagram, Tumblr, Flickr, LinkedIn, Twitch, YouTube, etc. into one unified presentation.

Near Field Communication is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication by bringing them within about 4 cm (2 in) of each other.
Internet Relay Chat is an application layer protocol that facilitates communication in the form of text. The chat process works on a client/server networking model. IRC clients are computer programs that a user can install on their system. These clients communicate with chat servers to transfer messages to other clients. IRC is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels, but also allows one-on-one communication via private messages as well as chat and data transfer, including file sharing.

"If people Updated their Knowledge Base as much as they updated their Facebook Page we would have a lot less ignorance in the world."  Disgrace Book

Internet Sayings and Quotes

"As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends, and more important to have real ones."

"When you’re up, your friends know who you are.  When you’re down, you know who your friends are." 
Friendship

"Making a hundred friends is not a miracle. The miracle is to make a single friend who will stand by your side even when hundreds are against you."

My twitter account says I'm following 20 people, but I'm not following anyone, I don't have the time, only 33 are following me, but I'm sure they are not following me because I hardly ever post anything, so, should I just delete the account? I'm not using it.

"One thing that Facebook is good for is that you will hear about things that you normally wouldn't hear about, especially things about your friends that you have lost touch with. And whether that's good or bad, I guess it depends on the person. So Facebook is not a total waste of time, but it can be. So it's not so much about Facebook, it's more about how we use our technology tools then the tools themselves. And using tools effectively and efficiently is something everyone must learn to do, but sadly no school teaches that, except for BK101."


Disinhibition
We can't ignore some of the Psychological Effects of being on the internet. We need to improve education so that future generations are more intelligent, and also less vulnerable to the dangers. Addiction to Technology Tools

Online Disinhibition Effect is the loosening (or complete abandonment) of social restrictions and inhibitions that would
otherwise be present in normal face-to-face interaction during interactions with others on the Internet, including dissociative anonymity (or, more precisely, the appearance thereof), invisibility, asynchronicity, solipsistic introjection, dissociative imagination, and minimization of authority. 

Sexting

Disinhibition is a lack of restraint manifested in disregard for social conventions, impulsivity, and poor risk assessment. Disinhibition affects motor, instinctual, emotional, cognitive, and perceptual aspects with signs and symptoms similar to the diagnostic criteria for mania. Hypersexuality, hyperphagia, and aggressive outbursts are indicative of disinhibited instinctual drives.

Anonymity may reduce the accountability one perceives to have for their actions, and removes the impact these actions might otherwise have on their reputation.

Privacy - Anonymity

A study in 2000 for the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse found that people reported more drug use when questionnaires were administered by computer instead of in person. People disclose more personal information chatting online, as opposed to speaking face-to-face.

Self-Determination Theory is the motivation behind the choices that people make without any external influence and interference.

Some people think that society is becoming more isolated because of the Internet, which is partly true but also false. We should not confuse isolation with more in depth thinking or more in depth exploration of self and humanity. Socializing online is not the same as socializing face to face. Socializing face to face has its benefits and its hazards. Socializing online also has its benefits and its hazards. But the bottom line is that people are socializing and communicating. A person can be just as isolated in public as they can be at home by themselves. So the problem is not the Internet, the problem is Society itself. But guess what, because of the Internet’s incredible potential to communicate and collaborate with millions of people, society problems will soon be a thing of the past as long as everyone has knowledge of what it means to have Interpersonal intelligence.

The Internet will not be able to fix all of our problems. We still need to educate everyone. We have to learn how to utilize technologies efficiently, effectively, intelligently and honestly, and at the same time and just as important, we have to learn how to live without technologies so that we never lose touch of our human qualities and never lose touch with the life that God and Earth has given us.

Technology is Just a Tool

What is the difference between a Social Network and an Internet Relationship?

Noosphere

Facebook is a very unique environment. It's a complex way of socializing because everyone has a different understanding of how Facebook should be used. Everyone also has different expectations and perceives Facebook in their own way. So in a way Facebook creates a false sense of reality. So the user must be aware that Facebook has many risks involved. I believe Facebook and other social networks are a great way to keep in touch with friends, family, colleagues and is sometimes a nice way to meet new people. But Facebook is very limited in communicating sincerity, and it could never be as effective as talking to someone on the phone. Or could Facebook ever be as personal or honest as a real face-to-face conversation. So please, pick up the phone once in a while, because you will never be able to replace a human voice, because meaning sometimes needs more then just text and images, it needs a human. To avoid being Superficial, people must learn to be aware that there is always more then what appears to be on the surface. Knowing someone is not the same as keeping in touch with someone you think you know. 

Just because other people unknowingly choose to be ignorant doesn't mean you have to.

Our ability to share and gather information from each other is a great asset. It's just that our personal information and our best knowledge is being used and abused for money and not for the benefit of people. That is the poison that oozes from a capitalistic society. it's not just the fault of capitalism, it is the result of ignorant people. And people don't know how ignorant they are because we do not have an accurate way of Measuring their Ignorance. As soon as we design this extremely important test we can make people realize how ignorant they are so they can make the appropriate corrections in the way they manage their life and in the way they view the world. No one wants to be ignorant.

FACEBOOK in December 2013, hired French neural nets innovator Yann LeCun to direct its new AI research lab. Facebook
uses neural nets to translate about 2 billion user posts per day in more than 40 languages, and says its translations are seen by 800 million users a day. (About half its community does not speak English.) Facebook also uses neural nets for photo search and photo organization, and it’s working on a feature that would generate spoken captions for untagged photos that could be used by the visually impaired. FFei-Fei Li from Image Net labeled 14 million images.

Over 30 million Facebook accounts belong to Dead People
30 million Facebook users died in the first eight years of its existence. In fact, 428 of them die every hour, and 10,273 die everyday. Facebook will eventually have millions of users that are dead and diseased, that's because family's like to keep the pages active as a memorial to their loved ones. So when you die your Facebook page will live on. Unless you leave detailed instructions to family or friends not to keep it live.

What's good about the Comment Section
When someone shares an ignorant opinion, whether in a comment section or not, it's good to correct them without adding any more ignorant opinions or comments. You want to keep people honest without calling them a liar. Everyone makes stupid comments once in a while, and everyone says things that they regret saying. We sometimes make the assumption that we know enough about a particular subject that we believe that we can enlighten other people. So we express our views even knowing that we could never fully explain ourselves in a few sentences. Most people are not ready for an open and honest conversation. So most people will hold on to their biases without knowing how much damage they cause to themselves or to the world. We need to define what a good education is supposed to be and then make it available to everyone. School is not a place, or a place that you graduate from, the school is your mind. And it's made up of everything that you have experienced and learned up to this point. But everyone ignorantly thinks that school is over, but in fact, we graduate to the school and not from the school, the school is your mind. So don't ever close its doors. The more you learn, the more you understand. The more you understand, the more control you have. The more control you have, the more power you have. The more power you have, the more freedom you have. The more freedom you have, the more potential you have. The more potential you have, the more possibilities you have. The more possibilities you have, the greater your life can be.
