This article, linked below, talks about the real differences between social networking and real-world networking.  In the focus of this class, we talked mainly how networks worked, always assuming that each buyer wanted the best thing for themselves, or the seller will not cheat.  In reality, everyone in life is doing everything for an ulterior motive.  When you are actually networking in the real-world, say as a college senior looking for a job, you are always on top of your game, engaging people and talking to people that you would not otherwise engage with or talk to!  This skews the connections because  one party is essentially “fake”.

This is important because we need the stark contrast between practicality and real life.  If all networks could be programmed by a computer, if all relationships could simply be the results of equations, then we would start to lose sight of where our human nature ends and where technology has gone slightly too far!
