Objective

To establish that there is a clear lack of Social contact in the current time and a clear distinction between actually making friends and just adding them on a virtual network . The aim is to make people aware of the original way of networking - That is over food. Food is the ultimate Social lubricant. We hope to establish and make people aware , through actual , proven examples of real networks created over food.

Description

The actual meaning of the word “Social Network” according to dictionary.com is “a network of friends, colleagues, and other personal contacts:” Google gave the meaning of “a network of social interactions and personal relationships.” But yes, the recent developments has created a new meaning - ” a dedicated website or other application which enables users to communicate with each other by posting information, comments, messages, images, etc.”
The rise of virtual social networks has brought people closer - in terms of information and taken them farther in terms of emotions and personal connection.

We aim to make people aware of the original way of networking - That is over food. Food is the ultimate Social lubricant. We hope to establish and make people aware , through actual , proven examples of real networks created over food.

Requirements

Information regarding their number of “Facebook Friends”
