Taxonomy of Social Networking Sites

I have been exploring social networking sites on the Internets! Here is my recap of what I have found:

  • MySpace: A singles’ bar with a band
  • LinkedIn: A Chamber of Commerce breakfast
  • Orkut: A cipher from Google
  • Gather: A book club or a poetry reading
  • Facebook: The undergrad library

Bottom line: If you do not have one already, you need a Facebook.
