~~~ Network Literacy
As our world becomes increasingly connected through the use of networks that allow instantaneous communication and the spread of information, the degree of people’s understanding of how these networks work will play a major role in determining how much society will benefit from thisheightened connectivity. In short, a networked society requires network literacy: basic knowledge about networks can be howused as a tool for discovery and decision-making, and about both their potential benefits and pitfalls, made accessible for all people living in today’snetworked world.
