Why YOU Are The Most Influential Node In Your Network

You probably hear about networks all the time. Social networks, professional networks, computer networks, etc. But what is a network? And what does a network look like? Well, one way to picture a network is by imagining a collection of points, let's call them 'nodes', connected to each other by a series of lines, let's call them 'links'.

To better help visualize this concept, below is a representation of a relatively simple network. You'll see nodes, and you'll see links. You'll also see yourself right at the center. Wow, you look great!

The vast majority of people operate in a multitude of different networks. Family. Friends. Coworkers. These are examples of just some of the networks you might belong to that can be visualized in the same way.
