Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision.Although online community  services are sometimes considered as a social network service in a broader sense, social network service usually means an individual-centered service whereas online community  services are group-centered. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, activities, events, and interests within their individual networks.

Lol, I have in mind examples of highly-paid individuals who devote most of their working time to their personal online pursuits. I guess this is hardly applicable to freelancers who get what they work for.

A friend just told me that at her workplace TEAM stood for "Toll, ein anderer macht's" - "Yeah, someone else does my job". :-)

Social work in groups, net of relationships of work in society.
