Social network - Wikipedia

Social network - Wikipedia:

this idea of social networks has become more important to me over time, although when i first heard about it and began observing my own networks and those around me, i often thought i was off on a tangent that didn't connect with reality. Today, networks seem more tangible given the growth of social media we have seen with the advent of personal computing and smart phones.

The question must be, for everyone, have our networks grown and strengthened? Or are we merely mapping the superficial aspects? I know that Google and Facebook are mapping how we connect, and while it seems a little odd to look at it this way, deeper intelligence emerges from from richer networks.

I think contemplating our own networks in a pluralistic mechanical way and exploring the real nature of our connections will in the long run, help us as people individually, and in the wider schemas of society, civilization, and the natural world.

To make meaning and sense out of it, we will need to explore different institutions and create new models for education and learning. The education system and our information media function a bit like a factory or a retail outlet--churning out standardized students and distributing mass produced facts, alternative facts, and other parcels of concept which fail utterly at integrating wholly with the world.

If, our climate, of mood disorders, addictions and pathological politics, has its roots in how we form attachments as children  then grasp of  attachment theory and Social Networks offers a promising way towards recovery and building a stronger healthier world.
