How does networking happen on the world you've created for your fiction though? What is it used for? Can only certain people/beings/robots/strange creatures etc do this? Is corruption an issue and does anyone try to fight it, if so? Which of the creative arts is known on your world and are there conferences/classes for them? How is successful networking "rewarded"?
Have any of your characters formed friendships, which later they depend on in life threatening situations? How does networking earlier in their life benefit them now? (Or does it endanger them because the friends they thought they'd made turn out not to be friends at all?!).
