Social Networks 1.0

Posted on May 29, 2007. Filed under: Educational, Resources |

If you’ve ever been in the computer area of the library, and glanced at your neighbor’s computer screen, you may have seen them surfing one of the Internet’s many “social networking” websites.  Besides the popular MySpace.com, there are many varied and interesting sites available now that are working to connect like-minded people through the power of the web. 

Social networking services allow users to create a profile for themselves. Users can upload a picture of themselves and can often be “friends” with other users. In most social networking services, both users must confirm that they are friends before they are linked. For example, if Alice lists Bob as a friend, then Bob would have to approve Alice’s friend request before they are listed as friends.   Social networks usually have privacy controls that allows the user to choose who can view their profile or contact them, etc.
