Social Nets Index Online Social Networks

Creating social groups is one of the original practices on the Internet. Extending back to the 1960's, people have consistently used online tools to expand, extend, re-invent, and build social groups. Today, social networking has become a major activity online, and many of the functionalities and traditions from decades ago have become cast in different interfaces that include features such as profiles, friend and relationship links, instant messaging, blogs, bookmark-sharing, Web-based discussions, and Web-based email. By the early 21st century, applications ("apps") on cellphones are providing connections among people.
