    What social networking sites to you use and what do you like about the ones you use?

    There are so many now days and some are really good and others just suck.

    I prefer Facebook although I think it's slowly starting to become bloated. So far, no flashy pictures and such which is nice. MySpace is just atrocious and my MySpace simply tells people to register for Facebook if they want to find me... :p

    Those are the only two I've tried.

    Myspace is very confusing to use, I use FB and ASW mainly. I have accounts on others but never check them.

    Facebook...and I have a Myspace, but it was only to look at someone else account..once. Was boring and pointless to me.


    Facebook is better, because it was based on sharing picture, something I would not get to see if I was not on the site. Still with these new Apps, I'm not a huge fan of FB anymore.

    None of the above. I don't really see the point, nor do I have the time, I'm too busy surfing MR. :)

    I like Facebook. I see Facebook as being a more 'adult' version of Myspace.

    The FB apps are incredibly annoying, I keep getting invitations for some useless apps.

    Facebook only. Myspace is bloated and all the flashy stupid things people put on their profile drive me nuts.

    Facebook only...you pretty much can't be in college and not have facebook.

    I am, however, getting damn tired of these stupid apps...there is some serious bloat happening on profile pages (what happened to the simple profile page?) and I'm getting like 20 requests a day for this and that app. Annoying as hell.

    If it turns out someone I know has myspace my friends and I will be sure to make fun of him a lot. Myspace is a huge joke.

    The thing I hate most about myspace is the music which automatically plays when you get to the page.

    I used to love Facebook because it was clean and efficient. Now it's become a MySpace clone, so I've stopped using it.

    Check it out.

    It's more design/art oriented I suppose, but it's really the most well done of any of the social networking sites I've seen.

    Virb. I've been browsing that site for a while now, quite like it. The amount of customizability you can do, while still keeping look good, is amazing.

    Might have to register there.. :cool:

    I saw virb when it first launched and really liked the look of it.

    Kind of like my space with taste.

    But I don't really go in for "social networking" in a big way (or anyway).

    I think most people use these sites to communicate with existing friends, rather than making new ones.

    Social networking sites are a government black-op to track and map the relations of the people of the world. Starting with the US and Europe.

    Just think, because you talk to so and so and they talk to someone who is ['lil bush] "believed to be Al Qaeda" [/'lil bush] then you may find yourself on a trip to Guantanamo.

    Rupert Murdoch is the P.R. head for the axis of evil. Myspace is his garden.

    i use Facebook, although the apps are getting annoying.
    i have a myspace, never on it. pretty much hate it.
    i used to be on SG, not sure if i'll go back. its a bit too pretentious at times.
