    9. 9. It was 2004 when Mark Zuckerberg started asking his fellow Harvard University students to try out his new idea known as "the facebook." The online community allowed his peers to create personal profiles, search for profiles and invite others from the university to join. It was a smashing success almost immediately. In 2006, Facebook opened its virtual doors to anyone with a registered e-mail address. Not content to rest upon his accomplishments, Zuckerberg continued to push for new features. One of the most revolutionary was creating an application programming interface (API) for third-party developers. Suddenly, programmers could design applications that could tap into Facebook's massive population. Applications range from simple games and diversions to clever marketing campaigns. In 2009, Facebook acquired FriendFeed and began to incorporate its aggregation services into Facebook profiles. Facebook is still a private company -- in early 2010, two major investors announced that Facebook would not seek an initial public offering (IPO) in 2010. Looks like you'll have to wait a while longer to get your hands on Facebook stock. In short: Facebook has become the most visited social networking site in the world, receiving more than 10 million unique visitors than MySpace in January 2009, making it the No. 1 social networking site on our list.

    12. 12. Part Web site, part Web service – Twitter is an online environment where users can create profiles, fill them with information and then build a network of people they "follow" (and a band of others who follow them). Twitter sends messages between users via the Short Message Service (SMS), better known as text messaging. Members send their texts through Twitter to those they allow to follow them. The messages, called Tweets, are super short: only 140 charters or shorter (there are technically 160 characters for use, but the first 20 are there to make room for user names in messages.) The new phenomenon is called microblogging and it's incredibly popular. "Even the president of the United States has a Facebook fan page and uses Twitter to reach the American public where he has over 262,000 followers," says Brenda Powell, president and founder of the company Social Networking Girls. All sorts of famous people are on Twitter. If you sign up for an account, you can follow astronauts, scientists, athletes, musicians, actors and writers. Or you can ignore the celebrities and focus on your friends. Some Twitters use the service to arrange parties or other events. Others just like to keep their friends up to speed on what's going on in their lives. The messages can be sent via phone, through the Twitter Web site or one of hundreds new desktop or smart phone widgets. English Writing Skills (EGL113)

    15. 15. LinkedIn is an online social network for business professionals, which is designed specifically for professional networking, to help them find a job, discover sales leads, connect with potential business partners. Unlike most of the other social networks, LinkedIn does not focus on making friends or sharing media like photos, videos and music. To start using LinkedIn you need to register and create a profile page. To register to LinkedIn, you need to provide personal information. You can update the profile with your education and job details and a summary. Additionally, you can also give and receive recommendations from co-workers and bosses. There are more than 75 million professionals registered on LinkedIn. English Writing Skills (EGL113)

    18. 18. YouTube isn't what you'd traditionally call a social networking site. Its purpose is to provide a place where people can upload and view videos, most of which are user-generated. But it's one of the most popular places on the Web to interact -- and react -- via text or video comments: just one more way to keep people coming back. Anyone can view most YouTube videos, but to post one you need to create a member account. As a member, you can create user profiles and include as much or as little information about yourself as you like. Each member's page is customizable and hosts the videos that member has uploaded to YouTube. The hippest thing to do on YouTube these days may be video logging, or vlogging. It's similar to blogging -- members post videos in which they talk about a subject that interests or concerns them. Other users can comment on the video and conversations develop as a result. While YouTube has always featured a user comments option, the social networking aspect of the site really took off when the site introduced video comments in May 2006. Instead of leaving a text-based comment in response to a video, members can now record short videos in responses. English Writing Skills (EGL113)

    21. 21. Instagram is a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your life with friends and family. Take a picture or video, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram — it's that easy. You can even share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more. It's a new way to see the world. It is a smart phone app for Android and IOS platform Instagram, like any other social network, is based around having friends or followers. On Instagram you ‘follow’ people. At the top of your profile (or anyone’s profile) you will see the username, profile pic, how many photos have been uploaded, how many followers the account has, and how many they are following. When you follow someone, their photos show up in your stream. The only other things you can do are ‘like‘ photos and comment on them. Both are appreciated. People ask questions in the comments, like ‘where was this taken’ or ‘what app did you use for that?’. Once you get into using Instagram, you will see how laid back people are and how much fun they are having. It’s currently a very friendly community. English Writing Skills (EGL113)

    24. 24. MySpace isn't the oldest online social network, but it helped define them -- and it incorporates many different Web services into a comprehensive package. Every MySpace profile comes with the ability to post blogs, news items and status updates and create rich, detailed user profiles. Members can post and share pictures, videos and music, plus can create groups and invite other members to join. But what makes MySpace stand out from the crowd is the sweet sound of free marketing. For bands and unsigned performers, MySpace is a sort of virtual audition stage to debut new tracks, share information or arrange special shows for their fans. In late 2009, the news broke that MySpace would begin to use Facebook Connect, an API developed by the site's largest rival in the social community market. Could this mean MySpace will shift more toward being a content site for musicians than a social networking site? On MySpace, your social network starts growing from the first day. When you join MySpace, the first step is to create a profile. You then, invite friends to join there and search for your friends on already profiled on MySpace these friends become your initial Friend Space. Once the friendship is confirmed all the people in your friends' Friend Space become part of your network. In that sense, everyone on MySpace is in your Extended Network. As part of terms of MySpace, the user must be at least 14 years old to register. English Writing Skills (EGL113)
