    A social network site focuses on building online communities of people who share interests and/or activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. Most social network services are web based and provide a variety of ways for users to interact, such as e-mail and instant messaging services.

    Social networking has created new ways to communicate and share information. Social networking websites are being used regularly by millions of people, and it now seems that social networking will be an enduring part of everyday life. The main types of social networking services are those which contain directories of some categories (such as former classmates), means to connect with friends (usually with self-description pages), and recommender systems linked to trust.

    Common, popular examples would be Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn.

    Though I am interested in the thoughts of others on this. I myself am not a big social networking type guy.

    I use Linked in, and the only other sites that remotely fit the descriptor are BoltTalk and LLV.
