Build Social Networks with Node
Node.js is built on the same V8 engine that’s included in Google’s Chrome browser. It is architected around an event loop and emphasises asynchronous, non-blocking I/O. Most importantly, it is well suited to building scalable applications such as social networks and dynamic apps with rich social media features.
To accelerate development on the node.js runtime, several popular web frameworks and libraries have emerged. With a strong package manager, npm, in place early on in the life of Node, the developer community has tended toward smaller, focused libraries rather than all-in-one frameworks. As a result it’s far more common to integrate multiple single-purpose libraries when building with Node.
