A "network" is any group of things that are connected to each other in some way. Here are some examples of different kinds of networks:
- a television network
- a social network
- a spy network
But these days, the most common use of "network" is to talk about connected computer systems. Many companies, schools, and other organizations have their own "network" which is a group of computers and servers that are connected to each other over the Internet. These networks usually require special permission to access.
