Modern jargon that refers to a social network which exists online, it refers to a "taxonomy" of knowledge organized by ordinary "folks." In other words, regular people like you and I are building networks of knowledge based on common interests by combining "what they know" with "who they know." The topics are all over the map. One way to think of it is like a job board or classified advertising blast but instead the vehicle is a Web site.
