Social Networking

September 17, 2008

the Web is old, the Web is new, the Web is all, the Web is you“,

I like this quote from a song because it is true about the web today. There are so many ways for individuals to make their web experience very personalized. I believe social networking is a good way for people to connect with others who share the same interests as them as well as find new ideas and social pathways that they didn’t even know they were interested in. Lots of social communities have been formed by people sharing interests and ideas on certains subjects. They way I see it social bookmarking will only increase in the number of users experiencing over the years.

I found here Social Networking sites on wikipedia a list of Social networking sites, the interesting thing about it is it includes sites from all over the world so you can see what is popular in other countries. it breaks down what is needed to be able to join the site…like some are only open to college students with a college email some are invite only sites and some are just general sites open to the public. Some of the sites were Playahead which is popular to Swedish, danish, and norwegian teenagers…and then there is skyrock which is apparently the leading social networking site in the French speaking world.
