Social Network 2.0 : Interconnected Social Media Servers

Today, when you hear Social Network the word , I am one hundred percent sure the first thing showing up in your mind is Facebook.To understand social networking , lets pick Facebook as the subject and revise its basic functionalities which makes it what it is. I’ll call everything we share as “data” , posts, personal, photos etc.On Facebook we share data , an enourmous amount of data.It is your own data that you can control.Well.. that’s true until you publish it.
