Social Networks - Social Media

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. Comments.

Social Netwoks 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 do we use language accurately enough 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.

Why the BK101 Facebook page is not being updated on a regular basis. Facebook is not safe place to be. We encourage people to spend more time on the BK101 website than on facebook. In the future we will create our own social network with no adds, no manipulation and no exploitation. A social network where you get paid when your information is used. You will also know why your information was used, where it was used, when it was used, and how it was used. And you will have more control of your interface and its functions. I'm not anti-social media, I just want an effective communication platform that's open, transparent and definitely not exploitive in anyway.

You Have 0 Friends is the fourth episode of the 14th season of the American animated television series South Park, and the 199th episode of the series overall. In the episode, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny make Stan a Facebook Profile against his will and he becomes extremely frustrated with everyone asking him for friend requests. After he gets fed up with Facebook, Stan tries to delete his profile but is sucked into a virtual Facebook world. Meanwhile, Kyle starts trying to find ways to get more friends on Facebook after he drastically starts losing them due to his befriending of a third-grade friendless Facebook user, whom everyone considers a loser.

Networks are important extremely valuable. Friendships are important extremely valuable. Connected to someone on Facebook is not the same as being connected to someone in real life. Friends on Facebook is not like friends in real life. Knowing someone takes more than time. You may be friends with someone your whole life but never really know them completely. That's because people never reveal everything about themselves, or know how. This is because the education system is extremely inadequate. Schools deliberately keep students ignorant about themselves and the world around them. And students have no idea that they are ignorant because they don't have the knowledge and information that would reveal their ignorance, which means they will never know how ignorant they are their entire lives. So in order to accurately know yourself and the world around you you need the knowledge and information that will allow you to do this. Then you will be able to communicate who you really are to other people as well as yourself. So until the, you must admit that you're ignorant and that you have a lot to learn. Start reading BK101 today and don't ever stop. Because I will never stop learning and never stop collecting and organizing the most valuable knowledge and information that the collective intelligence of people in the world creates everyday.

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?

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.

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.

"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."


Online Disinhibition Effect is when a person does not care about what other people think about them, so they ignorantly believe that they can say or do anything that they want without having any consideration for other people, which is total perversion of the freedom of expression and the freedom of speech. Freedom is not a right to be an as*hole, it's the right to be honest with people without being unfairly judged, which takes good communication skills, awareness and people skills. Loosening or complete abandonment of social restrictions and inhibitions that would otherwise be present in normal face-to-face interactions, or 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, has its dangers and vulnerabilities.

Inhibited is unable to act in a relaxed and natural way because of self-consciousness or mental restraint.

Inhibition is a feeling that makes one self-conscious and unable to act in a relaxed and natural way. A voluntary or involuntary restraint on the direct expression of an instinct. The action of restricting or hindering a process. Control - Program.

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.

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.

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.

Just because you post something this does not mean that everyone will read it, or understand it. Posting on social networks is not the same as a direct email or phone call. But a social network should have an option for a mass message so that everyone on your network receives a massage alert. The bottom line is, never take Language for granted. You have to use language as effective and as a efficient as possible, if not, then your communication becomes mostly noise. Language is the most important tool that we use to transfer information, and yet everyone treats language like it's a toy or some kind of guaranteed fact. Everything that you are and everything that you will ever be, will come from the language that you have and use in your mind. You cannot have thoughts without words, and you can not have good thoughts without using good words. And you can not send good messages without understanding words and without knowing how to transfer information effectively and efficiently as possible.

Technology is Just a Tool

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


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. Fei-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.


The Good and the Bad and the Pros and Cons about having a Comment Section

Allowing comments is kind of like having a Rating System. They are not always accurate and they can also be misleading. But if a comment section is working correctly, it can offer more opinions and even some other information that was not available in the original content. But sadly, other times a comment section can waste a lot of time and also be distracting. And it can also be a place for ignorant people to share ignorant opinions or even spread hate. So when someone shares an ignorant opinion, whether in a comment section or not, it's good to try to correct them without adding any more ignorant opinions or comments. You want to keep people honest without calling them a liar, or without adding your own lies. Everyone makes stupid comments once in a while, and everyone says things that they regret saying later on. We sometimes make the assumption that we know enough about a particular subject that we can enlighten other people. So we express our views even knowing that we could never fully explain ourselves in a few sentences. And on top of that, a lot of people are not ready to have an open and honest conversation with a stranger. So most people will hold on to their biases without knowing how much damage they cause to themselves or to other people. So we need comment sections in some places and we don't need them in other places.

Criticizing - Trolls Bullying - Feedback - Peer Review - Pros and Cons - Public Surveys - Censorship

The more people you allow to communicate with, the greater your chances will be that an ignorant person will feel the need to harass you and attack you. So you have to be ready and prepared for criticism and ridicule. How you react and respond to peoples ignorance is extremely important. And hitting back may not be the best way to communicate. You don't want to make things worse by getting sucked into an argument that has no discussion control or format rules. Clearly explain your view and always ask questions. And you have to be able to admit when you're wrong, especially when you make a mistake. Just Apologize and then move on. If you want to thank the person for correcting you, then do so. And the most important thing is, never let anyone near your heart, meaning, don't take things personally or feel unloved in anyway. You have the power and control over your wellbeing. But you have to learn what powers and controls you have. And then you must practice them and also use your power and control as much as possible, because that is your responsibility. No one should control how you feel inside, no one except for you. But you have to learn how, because no one can learn for you.

Peanut Gallery was a nickname for the cheapest and ostensibly rowdiest seats in the theater in the days of vaudeville, where the occupants of which were often known to heckle the performers. Patent Trolls.

Heckler is a person who harasses and tries to disconcert others with questions, challenges, or gibes. Hecklers are often known to shout disparaging comments at a performance or event, or to interrupt set-piece speeches, with the intent of disturbing performers and/or participants. Satire.

Don't Get Sucked in to an Argument, especially an argument that makes you express the same ignorant behavior and reasoning as the other person expressed. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Comment Moderator is responsible for reviewing, responding to and moderating all user-generated content and user profiles (either pre-, post- or reactive moderation) within forums, comments, images, videos and audio, and liaising with the Legal and Community team where required. Moderating user-generated content to ensure that the community is a reliable source of information and a forum for transparent discussions. Manage any negative comments with positive responses and helpful information. Moderate discussions to promote constructive criticism. Enforcing Community Guidelines, and identifying trends in user activity for review and escalation. Utilize Community Management best practices, internal guidelines/policies and resources to provide customer interactions. Review filter hits and respond to reports of potentially inappropriate content, recognize and address threats to the well-being of the community, identify any customer service issues, and document all moderation actions. Identify and document “hot topics” within the community. Conservative or Progressive?

Comments Section is a feature of Web content in which the publishers invite the audience to comment on the published content. There are two types of comment sections, gated and non-gated. Gated comments sections require users to give the website some information before they can post a comment. Many news websites such as The New York Times and most social media websites are gated, as users have to log in and post under a username that identifies them. Non-gated comment sections don’t require users to provide information before posting. This lack of a barrier to entry can allow more people to post and potentially lead to a discussion with more viewpoints covered. This anonymity, however, is believed by some to lead to uncivil behavior and a higher likelihood of seeing or experiencing verbal aggression in the comments. In response to this, both the Illinois and New York State senates have considered bills to limit non-gated comment sections. The Illinois bill would have incentivized websites to gate their comments requiring users to provide their real name, a home address and a confirmed IP address. The New York Bill would have made websites remove anonymous commenting. If a comment section is moderated it is typically done in one of the following three ways: post-moderation, pre-moderation, or through a flagging system. Comments that are post-moderated are checked after they’ve been posted. Pre-moderated comments are checked before they are allowed to be posted. Comments that are moderated with a flagging system can be marked or ‘flagged’ by other users for official website moderators to look at. (so a law for a comment section but not campaign attack adds. WTF!)

Shadow Banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. By making a user's contributions invisible or less prominent to other members of the service, the hope may be that in the absence of reactions to their comments, the problematic or otherwise out-of-favour user will become bored or frustrated and leave the site. Regulations (red tape).

Telling someone that they're wrong doesn't always solve the problem or correct a mistake. But you still have to speak up and yell at injustices, especially when you have the chance. You have to let people know that you are aware of this wrong and that you know what they are doing is bad. So stop.

Writing to someone is different than a face to face conversation. It's easier to write bad things about someone than to say bad things to them in person or in public. There are things that you should not say in person. Profanity will make communication less effective. And you don't want to jump to conclusions and look like a crazy ignorant person ranting about something that has not yet been personally discussed with that particular individual. If people want to communicate better and to be understood better, then people will need to educate themselves and become more knowledgeable about themselves and the world around them. There is no other way. Reducing your ignorance is your responsibility. Don't rely on other people to learn for you.

The war on ignorance is the war that everyone should be fighting in. If you're not fighting to be more knowledgeable about yourself and the world around you, then you're losing the war on ignorance, which is a war that kills thousands of people every single day and makes million of people suffer every single day. Everyone has the ability to be intelligent, let the learning revolution begin.

Foot Note

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 even 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 when they leave or graduate, but in fact, we graduate to the school and not from the school, the school is your mind. So don't ever close the 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.
