Social Networks - Revisited

| No TrackBacks

It seems that people have begun to use Friendster, Ringo, and other social networking vehicles to develop secure communities. I'm not sure that I am really convinced that these really work very well. What I believe happens most often is that you rely on a smaller subset of people to share and collaborate. More often than not, you discover that people who you invite, have no clue as to how this sharing should take place. Although, I used Linked-In, it is very rare that I happen to meet new people through that particular professional social network.

I have found that simply using Web2.0 tools (ie tagging, flickr, blogging, etc), I am more apt to create some semblance of a community (albeit loosely bound).
