Social Networking Sites

Since the inception of MySpace, social networking websites have been exploding. As a matter of fact, there seems to be a new site introduced almost every week. So what is social networking? Wikipedia defines it as, “building online communities of people who share interests and activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others.”

How many of these websites have you signed up for? Are you actively using them? Have you closed any accounts? What is your most popular account? Are we missing any social networking sites?
