A VERY helpful website!
I bookmarked this because it answered my question to what a social network is. This helped alot, it explained many details. This research helped me a lot. It taught me that a social network is just a social structure made up of individuals or orginazations that are connected by one or more by their mutual dependence. Their mutual dependence meaning their values, visions, ideas, financial exchange, relationship, sexual relationships, conflict, the relationship between any thing that share a genealogical origin. The origin can be through either biological, cultural, or historical descent.
