There are so many social networks around right now to name. And I could not believe the amount of accounts that my buddy has signed up. Sometimes I do wonder how he keep up with all of them, if he did.
Sure social networking is fun and you get to meet nice people and even meet people that you thought that you have lost contact with since high school. But there are more to that. Businesses are using social networking sites to get their “fans” and clients together to talk about them online.
These are generally done online through social networking sites like Facebook, Friendster etc. Things have gone mobile ever since, and I am not just talking about mobile versions of Facebook, Friendster etc. There is a relatively new social network known as FourSquare. It uses GPRS/WiFi and GPS to locate your mobile device and lets you virtually “check-in” at your location. You can then find people around you and leave a comment about your location, say a café for instance.
I know it sounds a little geeky but here is an article about Creating Buzz On Social Networks.
