The Concept and Main Types of Social Network

In this paper, I elaborate the theoretical conception concerning the concept and types of social network within a comprehensive social theory, which I call the theory of institutional sociology. Considering social relations, as well as tight and loose relationships within social relationships, I distinguish the social network from the social group (and union). According to this, social network is an aggregation of institutional social morals, as well as individuals falling into the validity scope of these morals and bound together by loose social relationships created by the given moral norms, and their loose social relationships. Then, considering the partner and loyalty relationships within loose social relationships, 
I distinguish between partnership and loyalty social network.
