Nexus Alumni, a secure network
Internet social networking sites are services which enable people to build a public or semi-public profile in a delimited system, create a list of contacts and browse through the lists of other people in the same system.
The first was launched in 1997 and enabled users to create a personal profile and lists of friends for browsing. However, it wasn't until 2003 when they really began to take off as loads of sites appeared offering different services for various types of audiences. Examples include LinkedIn, geared towards the business sector so its users can maintain and expand professional contacts and which after being set up in May 2003 had more than 42 million registered users from over 200 countries by June 2009; Facebook, originally only for Harvard graduates before opening up to everyone in 2006, which now has 300 million registered users; and Twitter, whose 50 million users can send tweets using up to a maximum length of 140 characters.
ESADE Alumni has an official group with more than 3,000 members' Join them!
ESADE Alumni's online social networking site NEXUS Alumni has been set up to enable alumni to get in touch with each other and also to provide them with state-of-the-art tools. Plus in terms of profile visibility, the new Nexus Alumni is exclusive to our community and has been designed to deliver all the benefits of social networking sites while avoiding the risks associated with all the others. That way Nexus Alumni is a secure social networking site because everything we share stays between us.
