Wikipedia defines Social Networking as: ". . . a social
structure made up of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes,” which are
tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as
friendship, kinship, common interest, financial exchange, dislike, sexual
relationships, or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige.”
But Social Networking has taken on a whole different meaning within this
current technological revolution. Now it doesn’t just refer to getting together
with people who all like the same thing, or want to learn how to do the same
thing, or simply are interested in the same subject, it means connecting with
these people online.
Since technology continues to evolve, and the humans responding to this
technology continue to drive it towards as yet unknown destinations, there are
always new questions.
As an association dedicated to facilitating our members’ businesses, TNNA
recognizes one of the most important things we can provide is a forum for these
on-going questions — a place in which our members can openly engage in asking
and listening, finding answers to the the questions we sometimes didn’t even
know we had.
So you really need to be at TNNA’s Fall Needlecraft Market in St. Louis for
the Social Networking Panel Discussion on Friday, September 24, 3:00 – 5:00
Katie and Matt from Norden Crafts, Deb Koch of Stitches Etc. and Sharon
Cresent from Cresent Colors will be on hand to answer questions, provide
valuable information, and share their experiences. It’s a great opportunity to
fill in some of those "blanks.”
