Essential differences in networking on a social and commercial scale lie in its utility value. Man is an animal evolved to different plane of existence. Yet, the underlying instincts surface such as when he networks. He is duplicating the migratory instincts that we see in animals the world over. To realize the strength of the ties we form while social networking and in utilizing all amenities present for writing helps man realize his existence as a superior creature.

Step into the limelight

Writing societies unlike pure social networking societies rely on commercial indebtedness rather than on social values. Means that when you say, “Tessy’s Bar is good, but not as nice as…” you are social networking. Writing comments in blogs is networking, a commercial activity. So, what is not working?
Professional comment makers use the blogs for developing back links to their own personal sites. It is a method of “attracting search engine bots” to the site. In fact, this trend is encouraged by webmasters because it will create more organic traffic. Let us understand the evolution of these networking societies.

Migration of birds and animals

Among the 9,876 species of birds found in the world, roughly 1,852 species migrate due to feeding, breeding and seasonal factors. Yes, and the most famous of them all – the Arctic tern, a small bird renowned for its long-distance flight from pole to pole. It gets to spend two summers each and every year.
Among fish there are 123 species that migrate and leader of this pack is the salmon. In insects, we have several species of butterfly and dragonfly that move over large distances. The “great migration” by the Serengeti on the plains of Africa is world famous. Whales, dolphins, crustaceans and reptiles migrate.

Members of the writing societies

Since the internet became the staple beast of burden for the modern man, people have begun make forays into the wide oceans. You find Australians, Germans, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese and Eskimos commenting on the same blog. Migration of these talented writers is brought about by various factors such as financial incentives (write for money, primarily), help create the perfect blog (content creation, SEO, et al) and need for social integration such as those found on blogs belonging to payment processors and online shopping malls and online stores. Most certainly those belonging to the last class have an inherent desire to keep tabs on their financial activities through interaction with online networking communities.
We may classify the interlinking of members of these social and writing communities on the basis of firstly, their likings and leanings and secondly, their style of presentation or interaction.
1. Structural bonding: Writing content for a blog or a newspaper column must be done with an ethical way. There has to be an adherence to rules of grammar as also to the presentation itself. It must be clear and concise as it is pleasing to the eye. All members within that community follow the same rules and present their work in the same manner and very often, within the same deadlines.
2. Emotional bonding: Game sites and social interaction clubs, blogging sites of schools and parent-teacher associations and those belonging to children for blogging will have an emotional string attached. There are no strict rules about presentation or any set time limits. The stress is more on having content that is legitimate for the region of the world as well as laying emphasis on clean and clear content.

Giving it time

Networking though not an exercise in financial gain, still has limits set on it by constraints of the internet working methodology. Search engines will not wait to see whether your party has begun to begin counting the horses.
1. Importance of spelling: In this world of fast changing preferences and affiliations, spelling loses out to intensity just as direction loses out to speed (on a motorbike). Just get me there becomes the motto and all other things remain forgotten. Thankfully, the search engines mark out spelling mistakes and grammatically buffoonery and downgrades the sites for their indiscretion. Being associated with such a site will result in your own site losing several ranks in the search engine listings. It will mean a loss of over hundred visitors – just for ignoring a spelling. Is it cricket, you may ask but there it is.
2. Use online spell checkers and grammar correction sites: You will find many online devices that help writers create good if not perfectly worded articles.
• Throwing the rope: ‘As easily said, as forgotten’, comes to mind when one thinks about these social networking sites. They merely pander to ‘pat my back and I’ll (maybe) pat yours’ kind of attitude, which in itself is not too bad. I mean, how nice if you have many friends who will listen to what you say. It is bit like dingle fong. I never felt this good since I was in kindergarten…my teacher used to hand out lollipops if you did not say a word. Using online spell checkers should be a routine affair for any accomplished writer. It is not the way that he or she reckons the world to be but rather the way it ought to be that governs the world of the writing community. You need readers man!
• Throwing away the rope: Poorly designed website will not only lose its ranking with the search engines but will also find less readership since the readers find it difficult to keep on reloading the pages. Get SEO done for your website so that the whole writing community may benefit. When it comes to writing societies, one should find a harmonious working atmosphere rather a comment making syndrome where everyone wants something for nothing and…nothing gets done.

Keeping the wheels turning

Social networking and not working do not matter to the members of the social community. It is a dog-eat-dog world and the person who pushes the largest dirt cart has the biggest voice. So do not be surprised if no members of your social network stop to make comments on your latest post.
On the other hand, the rules in the writing society are much more stringent. Selfishness is more and so are the rewards. People with talent make it big and the also-rans perish as dust under the wheels of the mightier writer.

Regulations for writing societies

Prominence has to be given to those aspects like drama that keep the world turning, in this case to the internet and its operation. Money does play a significant role since all things have a financial basis in this world. However, the need persists for a direction for all writing societies as also very open rules regarding what will pass muster and what will not have to be laid down and not for merely breaking the monotony. Networking among writing and literary societies needs to be productive, positive and interlinked to major financial decisions and decision-making bodies throughout society.

Ptrikha, you are very kind to read the material and make comments. Social networking is indeed meaningless if one does not make sense. Thanks again for the remark friend.

Well presented Snerfu, thanks for the share. My social networking is now through Wikinut mainly. I look forward to the comments and I enjoy more commenting on others' posts. I am not much into Facebook or Twitter. I do not have an active blog, so no question of backlinks or forwardlinks for me! siva

Actually Siva, the 'add me' buttons at the end of our blog, you know Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter among various others like Digg help you get on the internet networking scene. Even if you are not adding I am adding (at least whenever I remember) on these buttons. So you should have links. But like you say, Wikinut is big enough for anyone to exist in nice comfort.

Snerfu, excellent article and congratulations on the beautiful gold star. I have been writing for many years. I believe since I could hold a pencil. I love writing about fantasy and sharing it. I am involved in social networking. I'm on Twitter, Facebook, Tsu and Google plus. I find it a bit exhausting at times. I do not have a blog but maybe I should get one. I wouldn't know how to backlink or forward link. It sounds like more work. I'm also in the process of finishing my book. I talked to my publisher yesterday and they are waiting patiently. In the mean time I think that all my friends on Wikinut are by far my favorite. Blessings to you!

You are so charming taking time off to stop by my blog and read it.
There is no big deal if you do not have links. Wikinut, Siva rightly shows us, is big enough to get our articles online without any 'advertising'. But it is very crucial to keep in touch with the big boys...Twitter and Facebook and of course Google Plus.
Good luck with your book publishing -- see to that first, then you can come to Wikinut.

I am not sure the relevance of the migration of birds but one of the positive things about the Internet is that we are all involved with each other - we can all help one another. Is there any such thing as the perfect blog? Probably not, but the best thing we can do is aim to improve and improve what we write.

Well, penguins may bray or honk at each other but their colors remain the same. We need all the help we can get to make the perfect blog. Yes, and we have to look at the particular topics we write and stick to it through thick and thin.

Congrats on receiving that shiny gold star. Without the power of networking, my new book might otherwise not be seen by millions.

And congrats to you Sherri on your publication. You must tell us about the book in a blog so that we can all get a look at it.
