The importance of our social network

Nowadays, more than ever, people are so interconnected that social networks determine most of the aspects of their lives; from ideals and love, to information sharing and the spread of diseases. This video is not only about the prediction of epidemics through social networks’ monitoring but it also illustrates vividly the importance and the mechanism behind the spread of norms , ideas and behaviours. An implication of this is that any change in our lives is important to be based in a good comprehension of our social environment and and the selection of a good one to help us flourish.
