Abstract

This paperwork covers on social network concept and Social Network Theory into application of child network services. The concept of social network being discussed is divided into two parts; namely the concept of social network in terms of relationship and concept of social network from structural aspect. Meanwhile, Social Network Theory explains four basic things; which are the type of social network, social network pattern, social network system and social network distribution. Analysis of documents carried out through literature highlights on past studies found that social networks were divided into three types; formal social networks, informal social networks and integrated social networks. Social network patterns are broken down into five patterns of communication; i.e. non-direct links, direct links, symmetrical connections, mediation and also sociogram. Meanwhile, for social network distribution, there are four main factors affecting the distribution of social networks; namely the objects or parties involved in the network that are built up, network link connections, role relationships, functions and responsibilities between objects/parties involved in network ties; as well as flow and exchange in the network system.
