SOCIAL NETWORKS (ICT) AND CHILD LABOR
The TICs in general are diverse tools that exist in the world at present almost all of us are in the capacity to create these tools and use them for any purpose that we have in mind, but in this section.
The computer tools to enhance the effectiveness of online social networks (‘social software’), operate in three areas, “the 3Cs”, cross way:
- Communication (they help us share knowledge).
- Community (help us find and integrate communities).
- Cooperation (they help us do things together).
We could indicate that among the most used social networks are:
Facebook, My space, Sonico, Hi5, twitter, among others as the QQ of China, but as I told them as we know what social network to use for our purposes for it, we must qualify the following:
Intermediation The extent to which a node is among the other nodes in a network. This measure takes into account the connectivity of the node’s neighbors, giving a greater value to the nodes that connect to groups. The measure reflects the number of people a person indirectly connects through their direct links.
Connector A loop can be called a connector if its elimination causes the points it connects to become different components of a network.
Centrality This measure gives an approximate idea of the social power of a node based on how well it is “connected” to the network. “Intermediation”, “Cercanía”, and “Grado” are all measures of centrality.
Centralization The difference between the number of links for each node, divided by the maximum possible number of differences. A centralized network will have many of its links scattered around one or a few nodal points, while a decentralized network is one in which there is little variation between the number of links each node has.
Closeness The degree to which a person is close to all others in a network (directly or indirectly). It reflects the ability to access information through the “gossip network” of the members of the network. Thus, the proximity is the inverse of the sum of the shortest distances between each individual and each of the other people in the network. (See also: Proxemics). The shortest path is also known as the “geodesic distance”.
Grouping coefficient A measure of the probability of two people linked to a node associating themselves. A higher grouping coefficient indicates a greater “exclusivism”.
Cohesion The degree to which actors connect directly with each other through cohesive links. The groups are identified as ‘cliques’ if each individual is directly linked to each of the others, ‘social circles’ if there is less rigor in direct contact and this is immutable, or blocks of structural cohesion if accuracy is required. [twenty]
Degree The count of the number of links with other actors in the network. See also degree (graph theory).
(Individual level) Density The degree of relations of a respondent to know each other / proportion of ties between the mentions of an individual. The density of the network, or global density, is the proportion of links in a network in relation to the total of possible links (scarce versus dense networks)
Intermediation centrality flow The degree to which a node contributes to the sum of the maximum flow between all noso pairs (excluding that node).
Eigenvector centrality (Autovector) A measure of the importance of a node in a network. Assign scores relative to all nodes in the network based on the principle that connections to nodes that have a higher score contribute more to the score of the node in question.
But in the end what makes a social network work and makes it grow is its ease of use and to manage contacts and resources.
Now if we enter into rugged terrain, how can we use it to fight against IT?
Very easy social networks offer a new way of transmitting information and help optimize resources and improve communication channels. For this reason, the role that ICT can play in helping to eradicate child labor depends closely on the social reality of the environment in which IT occurs. The technological advance and its current web 2.0 format, platforms and social networks represent an opportunity to address the problem of child labor.
As we do it by forming social networks with people involved at all levels within the society, both digital and natural, this means that only the fact that a teacher provides information about an idea that has a certain environment where the IT is given inside. of a varied social network, that will give a faster result in the organization, and drive to find a solution.
Now we have the tools, which follows this training to use them and that is obtained with advice and practice, remember that social networks are made to share, collaborate and above all communicate. Greetings Partners.
