Network associates are system connections or group contacts. This may sound redundant since network can also mean association to another item or entity. This article will focus on the network associates that you can find in the World Wide Web. There are several ways to form network associates. You can join networking sites, accept invitations by friends in the Internet messenger, speak out in different forums and discussions, play virtual networking games, and much more.
The Internet can spread information worldwide in a span of minutes. This makes it easier to keep track of all the new products and technology that is introduced in the market. You may think that it will be hard to get updated with all the new software and hardware that comes into your life. This is a misconception. Just by having a network and regularly checking online, you will be bombarded with information, which sometimes may be too much.
You may or may not be aware of the following statement: Technology owners would of course want as many people as possible to use and purchase their product. This is crucial to know because when you thought you just “happened” to see a new technology, you were not aware of the process that it went through. The marketing group of the technology company planned it all along. It may even take many months and a lot of money to introduce it. In this technological age, the Internet is the arena or place to launch these products.
Just as commercial models are paid to relay message of new commercial products, some bloggers or website owners are paid if they write or post something about the latest technology. Once a person who is famous in a certain field comments or reacts to this new technology, followers (as the name suggests) follow the expert’s recommendations or suggestions.
After this, the second hand networker spreads the news and the number of people who know the new technology just grows exponentially. This might be good, but this can also have its disadvantages. Sometimes, just like outside the Internet, there are fraudulent dealings. There are those who pretend to be in full praise of a product, not because they have been real witness to its goodness, but because they own the company. You may not also know that the five positive comments just came from one person with different usernames.
With network associates, when they recommend, you can trust the technology because you trust the person. You can ask them the exact specifications in layman’s terms (for those not interested in I.T. jargon). Just make sure that this person has not been hacked, as there are many instances that experienced hackers pretend to be your network associate.
In summary, there are three points that you have to remember in keeping track of the latest technology from network associates. These are the following:
- All the latest technology from stable companies use the Internet as their marketing tool to reach out to everyone.
- There are so many desperate people who will use scams and deceive you into buying something you may not need.
- Network associates are the best resources for technology updates because they speak the truth, as you of course, would want to know the real score.
