Lesson 6, Part 1: Social Networking

Objective: Learn about Social Networking

Social networking is using the Internet to create and/or maintain social and professional connections and contacts:

  • Use your social networking connections to expand your circle of acquaintances anywhere from a close-knit group, up to a global scale;
  • Use your social networking connections for work and play purposes – learn about distant places; share information and ideas with other professionals, friends, and family over great distances; keep in touch with people with whom you might otherwise have lost touch;
  • Share your thoughts, ideas, plans, goals, successes and failures with people you know or meet through social networking.
