Social networking is part of a growing web technology known as Web 2.0, it helps build a strong presence for your company and communicate with members, provide discussion forums and engage users, it also provides the opportunity to form mutually beneficial alliances and cross promote.
There are a vast number of social networking sites on the internet today, the most popular ones include Facebook, MySpace, Linked In and Twitter.
Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. MySpace offers email, a forum, communities, videos and weblog space. LinkedIn aims to help visitors discover inside connections to recommended job candidates, industry experts and business partners. Twitter is a social messaging utility, allowing users to connect with others and build a network by sending and receiving short messages called tweets.
