I think a network drive is seen as an actual hard drive by the computer. These can be used at organizations.

A network place I think is places available on the network that you can connect to.

A network folder is a folder that can be view and/or accessed across the network.

I know that a network drive can be useful if you have many users, then they can have their own space that belongs only to them.

Or a network folder could be useful at home for sharing files across the network.
