Social networking is built around connecting people together. Each individual user will have its own network (or cycle) of connections that might be overlapping with the other user's networks. The overlapping part is a great resource for the other users to tap. Indeed, if two site users have one person in common in their connection network, then the site can suggest the common user to the other users. Therefore, the concept of friend suggestions have evolved. The WEG2G social site uses the Common Connection suggestion approach to enhance the quality of its user's experiences. In this short article, I briefly explain it. You can read "Thirty Features of WEG2G that One Should Not Miss" to learn more about WEG2G.
As mentioned, Common Connections are those people that are common friends of a minimum of two users. Let's follow the following simple example. Alex, John and Tom are friends, Jacky and Vanessa are common friends of all three guys. Now imagine, Matt becomes friends with John. Then, WEG2G will suggest Jacky and Vanessa to Matt and tells Matt that "three of your friends have Jacky and Vanessa in their friend list (or connections)."
Following the above example, you might have a good understanding of how the WEG2G Common Connections works. It suggests potential friends based on the people who are common in your friends' connection list. In particular, it classifies its suggestions into one, two, three, four, and five people in common. Thus, Matt will see Jacky and Vanessa in folder number three (or the Common Connections category number three). WEG2G updates all of is suggestions on a daily basis.
To summarize, the WEG2G Common Connection is a great resource for staying in touch with your friend's friends and develop your connection network. The more real connections (friends) you have, the more suggestions you get.
