I am new to Meta stack Exchange.

I don't know the difference between Stack Exchange and Stack Overflow.

I have been using Stack Overflow for more than 2 years. I know SO is for programming related questions. But what is the purpose of Stack Exchange?

as you know Stack Overflow is for programming related stuff.

Stack Exchange is the network consist of many sites like Stack Overflow each of them designed for specific purpose like

  • Super user
  • Android SE
  • Travel SE

and more than 169 sites are there

Stack Overflow is created first and Stack Exchange came later.

To confuse you, Stack Overflow is the father and eldest son of Stack Exchange
