In this week's Talk of the Town (for both print and online), you will find an article I wrote about the social netwo rking phenomenon. This issue also highlights the top 10 social networks (but there's a disclaimer there that says the list changes depending on the source of the information) an d the steps on opening a Facebook account. Here's an excerpt of the article:
JUST a few years ago, you could hear people say, âCall meâ when the y want to keep in touch. Later, it evolved into âE-mail me,â and with the explo sion of mobile phones, âText me.â Thanks to the Internet, people are now connecting and interacting with friends and family through online social networks. Just to give you an idea how big social networks are, MySpace has over 184.1 mi llion members, according to â5 Facts about Social Networking Sitesâ published b y Pipl website, an online search engine for people.P.S. Just as I was writing this blog entry, I received some feedback about the top 10 social networks. They were asking why Multiply.com was not there in the list. Apparently, Multip ly.com might be big in the Philippines, just like Friendster, but worldwide, it is not. Here's one list, which I found very useful and informative. This list also provides a different picture. What about you, what do you think are the top social networking sites out there ?
