People are living in an electronic era where we can access lots of things with a simple tap on our gadgets or smart phones. We can meet people and share our ideas easily without going somewhere else. Have you ever heard of social networking sites? Wondering what all that is about? Well, let's talk about the things we can find using the net.
Do you want to be a part of online social groups? If yes, well there are things that you may want to know about those. Online social group is defined as a group or club sharing a common interest. It is a feature in many social network services which allows their users to create, post, comment to and read information from their own interests, usually within realm of virtual communities. In online social groups, they are maintained by owners and moderators, who can edit posts on different threads and regulate the member behavior within the group.
On the other hand, an interest network is an online representation of individuals’ interests. It organizes information around a set of interests, which may be yours and yours alone. It doesn't need social networking. Contrary to e-groups or communities, interest networking focuses on very specific and individual interests, instead of broad categories or topics.
If you already grasp the ideas of online groups and interest networking, that can lead you to social networking community. It represents and connects people. There are a lot to choose from. For example, we have the popular site called 'deviantART', which is an art community. It features a lot of illustrations from its users. It aims to provide a program for any artist to exhibit their works. If you are interested in manga or animations, then here you can find what you are looking for.
