According to wikipedia "social networks are social structures composed of groups of people, which are connected by one or more types of relationships such as friendship, kinship, common interests or shared knowledge." If these people also connect to a computer system where they find a number of features that used in common, we are witnessing a digital social network. But now everyone calls the latter merely "social networks".
Today social networks are an everyday tool in the daily lives of people and, increasingly, set the trend of the masses. While there is a huge number of parameters and points to consider to build a social network (and having an established business model) can be noted that the first and perhaps most important to define are:
- A theme, this will enable the sector to guide and set of users who use the social network;
- Functional differences, it will mark the users why they should use social networking and what makes it different from other existing social networks, and;
- A defined scope, this will allow the creator (both intellectual and material author) draw the lines necessary to carry out the project, such as phases, covering each and their release dates.
In my view, although there are other points to start, I think these are what we drive on the most appropriate and practical way to achieve the ultimate goal: build a social network:)
Once these points have been established (at least in general) is needed the most difficult task: "the transfer of information from ideas to paper" for social network just begins to be a longer project a mere "idea".
Tip: To turn the thoughts on paper and not die trying to make a brainstorming writing ideas on slips of paper so that they can manipulate, moving them to mark their priority and what is not, define the limits of the different phases.
