Social Networks are used by hundreds of millions of people around the world. Social Networks impact on Records and Information Management (RIM) begins with clearly defining what we mean by a Social Network. For the purposes of this paper, a Social Network is defined as an internet-based service that allows individuals to construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site. The widespread use or popularity has no bearing on the definition, but as you will see later in this paper, the popularity has an impact on the RIM profession.
