它是关于社会网络，它以管理和处理信息为重点，以技术为基础的微电子技术。网络逻辑的扩散涉及到对文化、权力、经验和生产过程中成果和操作的实质性修改。网络最终成为现代社会的简单单位(Castells,2011)。网络社会倾向于超越被宣称的信息社会。纯粹地，它不是定义现代社会的技术，甚至是构成整个网络社会的政治、经济和文化因素。社会地位、政治组织、文化教养和宗教的影响往往会影响整个网络社会(Castells & Cardoso,2005)。这些因素对社会的影响有很多不同的方式。这些影响往往会阻碍或提高社会。由Castell为网络社会所设定的愿景所扮演的重要角色。在城市里，精英们并不依附于某个特定的地方，而是依附于流动的空间。
It is regarding social networks which focus on managing and processing information, by the use of technologies based micro- electronically. Networking logic diffused involves the substantial modification of outcomes and operation in processing the culture, power, experience, and production. Networks have ended up becoming the simple units across the modern society (Castells, 2011). The network society tends to be going way beyond the proclaimed information society. Purely, it is not the technology defining modern societies, but even the political, economic and cultural factors making up the entire network society. Influences like social status, political organizations, cultural upbringing and religion tend to be shaping the entire network society (Castells & Cardoso, 2005). There is shaping of the society by these factors in a number of different ways. These influences either tend to be hindering or raising the societies. A crucial role played by the space of flows across in the vision set by Castell for the network society. In cities, elites do not have attachment to a specific locality, but instead, there is attachment with the space of flows.
