The simplest definition I could think of: a system where members’ behaviour influences one another, assuming you already know the definition of a system
Therefore, social network like facebook would be a social system. A colony of ant foraging for food would be another. The latter is particularly interesting as the behaviour of each ant ultimately determine how the entire colony finds food or even build bridge to cross a water stream using their bodies.
