    What are some of the new social networks out there? Not MySpace or Facebook but maybe something on the horizon.

    Currently I frequent the following newer networks:

    Twitter - http://www.twitter.com
    Sivatar - http://www.sivatar.com

    What's on your list?

    There's a small chance Yuwie will take off, but for now I'm into Facebook...

    Facebook is the big one for now, but like myspace and xanga, it will die very soon.

    How about some newer ones? Like Twitter. I think that's a pretty neat site... StumbleUpon and Sivatar are good too.

    I looked at twitter from the earlier post, and i do think its pretty nice. Not catching on for now though, give it some time, and it may.

    I agree - seems to be growing. I also think the Sivatar concept is pretty darn cool.

    Facebook has been dying since they opened it up to people other than college students and added the stupid ****ing applications.

    yeah I agree. while some of the apps are pretty cool and useful most of them are crap. The ones that care about getting a ton of people are the ones that suck.

    It was nice when it was really was open to only college students and alums. Now it is just turning in to something like myspace.

    I counted and I have 58 app invites...:eek: I really don't like them, and I only add ones that I am obligated to add from my friends.

    I've always felt more secure on facebook than I would have been on myspace. I hear that myspace really is fine, and significantly more people have myspace than facebook, but that doesn't justify the effort for me to start one. I bet facebook was a lot better until high school pukes like me started joining...

    oh I agree I have a ton of apps invites I have not touch. I have some apps but the ones I like the most are the chess app and the risk app. Both apps I tend to like using. Risk because I enjoy the game and chess because I can play my friends chess. Mind you most games a few weeks to finish since we get like one move a day in.

    The only app I use is iLike, and I use that as a convenient way to see what concerts are coming to town...

    Bebo is terrible. Seriously, it's just Myspace with a different name.

    I disagree, Bebo is way better than MySpace (more secure too).
