For those frustrated with this discussion... it gets worse!
I just returned from a business conference where the terms "social
network(s)" and "social networking" seemed to be morphing every hour.
I think most of the business execs left that conference very confused
and thinking that social networks were invented only a few years ago
when MySpace and Facebook crawled out of the ocean. I tried to bring
a voice of reason/perspective/history to the discussion but fear I was
out-numbered by the "Web 2.0 uber alles" crowd.
And another thing... "social network analysis" is now "social
networkING analysis". ;-)
