EXPLAIN HOW AND WHY MULTIPLEX RELATIONSHIPS COULD CAUSE SOCIAL ANXIETY.

Multiplex Relationships
Multiplexity refers to the extent to which two social connections overlap with a group or population. Multiplex systems are established when individuals enter into relationships through a series of connections. For example, perhaps you have a friend looking for a job. That person may ask someone to be his or her mentor and get advice on how to find a new job. The process by which the mentee searched for a mentor, and the mentor and mentee searched for jobs is part of a social network.

Now, suppose your friend finds a job on LinkedIn and decides to apply. The LinkedIn site identifies you as a person who might know someone in the company. Your friend might contact you via LinkedIn to ask about the company or advice on how to get your application recognized. You might be able to put your friend in contact with someone in the organization. You may also contact the person you know in the organization and tell them about your friend’s interest in the position. This is how multiplex relationships are created, nurtured, and maintained.
