What is a Social Networking Service?
A social network service is an application to build
online social networks for communities of people who
share interests and activities or who are interested
in exploring the interests and activities of others.
Social networking services, also called social
networking sites (SNS), are designed to provide the
Web-based tools to let people build upon interactions
to create online communities.
What is its usefulness?
Web-based social networking spaces offer a way for
individuals or groups to create a profile of
themselves, then share that profile with other members
of the social networking space. The specific site will
provide a variety of ways for users to communicate
with others in the space, including instant messaging,
chat rooms, e-mail or site mail, blogs, file sharing,
videos, discussion groups, and so on.
