Originally this pearl was to hold a few sites that were for “social networking” like Facebook.
However social networking is far more than simply keeping in touch with old friends, connecting with other professionals in your field. or following your favourite "icon".
It is sharing your experiences with others of like mind. Sharing experiences, finding and sharing blogs, photos, television shows, movies, restaurants, software, travel etc.
This team pearl has grown to encompass all the above and others I haven't though of. The list could become very large hence I have broken down the sites by type. Apr 16
Wordpress can be hosted free at wordpress.com - NOTE: If you want full customization of your blog either download wordpress from wordpress.org and load on your own site. Or use a host that already offers the fully customizable wordpress package. by Apr 16

80% of all traffic on twitter and facebook is mostly useless chit chat and they thrive? Who am I to say. I think most of the newer magazines and websites that are targeted to the "younger crowd" rely on limited attention span this one seems no different. by Apr 10
Technorati is the dumbest website with more buttons than one can count. Plus the blogs they feature are all uninteresting and their blog popularity alogrithm is completely wrong. I give it a year. by Apr 9
The Social Source Commons (SSC) is standards-based, open source web platform for mapping "what's out there??? and ???who's using what??? in NGO/NPO software, based on a model that blends the sharing ethic and passion of nonprofit and NGO technologists with the best new internet technologies and information models. by Apr 16
