A network of Web sites and services that enable a user to go beyond shopping to completing a task, such as getting a mortgage loan, booking a trip, or buying a car. Most people go to a portal to begin a task-specific search, but it can be difficult to navigate and complete these kinds of transactions from start to finish on one Web site. A scenario net is a group of Web sites linked together to provide similar yet distinct functions associated with a particular task or scenario. More scenario nets would be a good thing because they provide the user with organized, pertinent information and may help eliminate non-related ad banners from content-rich Web sites.
