Ever since the dawn of the civilization, every living entity on the planet, spends most of the time to survive effectively by forming its own network consisting of homogenous and / or heterogeneous entities. This can be termed as a social network in the context of that entity. Hence social networks together form groups, communities, societies and civilizations. These networks exhibit the property of homogenous and heterogeneous interests during their formation. A basic congruence does exist when such social networks are formed. The utilization of such social networks to carry out specific tasks needs the formation of a sub-network, which hence can be termed as a congruent network. Therefore a Congruent Network can now be defined as a network of entities specifically formed to carry out a task effectively. The strength of a congruent network is directly proportional to the sum of the degree of congruence of each entity selected for that context. This work attempts to propose a concept and model for generating generic and specific effective congruent networks for a context and / or a spectrum of contexts using the current electronic social networks. This work also proposes representation system of the congruent networks, and how congruent networks can be used as recommendation systems.
