“Social” is not synonymous with “Welfare”.

You don’t tell people “I’m a social person” and mean “I’m on welfare”. You simply mean you enjoy being in the company of other people and socializing (talking). Social networking is along the right lines in that the point is to connect with people. It’s not like the primary purpose of Facebook or Twitter is to aid the needy. Don’t get me wrong, they can definitely be used in such a fashion and I think that’s great; but I simply mean that people should stop the common conception that social is greatly associated with welfare.

Social planning should not mean welfare planning, why not call it simply that: “Welfare Planning”. There’s probably a better word than welfare, but social has too many other connotations to be associated with welfare. Social planning should mean planning for social space, no not welfare space, but space in which people can socialize!
