Social nOtworking

Social notworking‘ is a term coined by Dr. Jorge Cham for an act that is called ‘social procrastinating,’ which simply means that when you procrastinate, you don’t do it alone, you do it with your friends. Although Dr. Cham uses it in context of Facebook, it applies when you do so on Orkut, LinkedIn, MySpace and many other similar websites, including Digg and StumbleUpon.

Blogging is when you procrastinate all the time by writing posts and then by monitoring comments and statistics. You make other people procrastinate by making them read your posts, and if you are any good at writing, there is a good chance that you’ll make procrastination a global phenomena. So blogging is the generalization of ‘social procrastination.’ It can be individual, it can be social or it can be more than social, depending on how many people read you, e.g., in my case it is individual, but in her case, it is a lot more.

By the way, I have had a Facebook account for quite sometime, and now I have an Orkut account too.
