Networking refers to the practice of interacting with others to exchange information and develop professional or social relationships. In a technological context, it describes the connection of multiple computing devices, such as servers, computers, and network devices, to share resources and communicate with one another. Technological networking enables the transmission of data and resources, like the Internet, across hardware components linked via local or wide-area networks (LANs or WANs). In a professional or business setting, networking often refers to the cultivation of relationships that can provide opportunities, information, or support. People network to advance their careers, share knowledge, or explore potential partnerships. Platforms like LinkedIn have digitized this form of networking, offering new avenues to connect professionally. In both technological and social contexts, effective networking requires an understanding of the relationships between nodes in the network—whether those nodes are individuals, organizations, or computer systems. Key to successful networking is the quality of connections, not just the quantity. In social networking, fostering a small number of meaningful relationships can often be more valuable than accumulating a large number of superficial contacts. Similarly, in technological networking, a well-designed, efficiently-running network can outperform a larger, less-optimized system.
