List of TOP Social Networkinfg Sites from WikiPedia
5/29/2007 8:13:12 PM
Hi everyone!  :-)

This is a list of some Social Netwroking sites taken directly from

Here's the hard link:  --->

Now I know these aren't your typical "marketing" Networks....ones that you can be like Kathy Hamilton and "tell everyvbody and there brother" so you can make some money if they upgrade........

But I'm telling to people who are NOT there to market their own thing makes a lot more sense. 

Think about it..........Would you try to sell cubscout popcorn to the girl scout coming to your front door?  Well?  on second thought - some of you don't you even dare answer that!  :o)

Although I must issue a word of does take a different "finnesse".....but it can be very effective.

Thanks for pointing out that exhaustive list Brian.

I've recently (belatedly) discovered sites like MySpace.  I agree that it's a potential bonanza for networkers who can do it with some skilled finesse.

It does take a lot of time to make the most out of belonging to many different sites, but worth it because it's probably the only way to go.  You have to be where the market is and online, the market's at MySpace and the like.

Business communities like AdlandPro and Bizpreneur and BizzyBlogz are great too for sharing information as well marketing amongst others who are in business already.

Both types have their place, but the social networking sites have huge new potential for us all.

Hi Andrew!

You hit the nail right on the head my good friend!  To work the social networking need to be willing to put in the time.  frind invite seem to take forever....then you have spammers to deal with......and posts/bulletins to come up can be an exhaustive process. 

And you are right!  Martketing have their place....and yes - there are quite a few people who will join your biz on them.  But......I have found them better utilized for:  (as you said) sharing information.

Thanks for stopping in Andrew!
