Social Networking Software

I don't remember when, but it must have been around a year ago, I was exposed to Social Networking software. I remember getting an email for something called Ryze. I wasn't sure what it was, but decided that I would go ahead and sign up for it. I filled out the profile and sometime over the next couple of weeks or months rather, I managed to "connect" with 9 people I know. I wasn't really sure why, but what the hell.

Ok, so here I am a year or so later and as part of my continuing education I have signed up for the following services and have connected with the following number of people directly and indirectly:

Linked In Direct Connections - 21 / Indirect connections - 230,000
Zero Degrees Direct connections - 6 / Indirect connections - 10,307
Orkut Direct connections - 46 / Indirect connections - 357,738
Friendster Direct connections - / Indirect connections -

Um - I guess I will update the post with the numbers as Orkut and Friendster seem to be having database problems right now.

So my opinion? Linked In seems pretty cool for business serious connections. I have been trying to use it today to help us find some talent for our new company Intercasting. It hasn't been terribly useful, but it could be because of the type of talent we are looking for.

Zero Degrees tricked me into doing something with my Outlook and it has taken over. I don't think I like that so I don't plan on using it much beyond what I have so far.

Orkut is cool. It feels kind of light and fluffy but also has a serious side.

Friendster is for single people. It feels really fun. I wouldn't take anyone seriously though who would contact me through it.

Hi ##NAME##, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a article such as yours with an unusual topic such as ##TITLE##. It somehow ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I have a soft spot for blogs related to article distribution and /or sites that have a central theme around article distribution type items.

Once again, thank you ##NAME##, hope to see more posts from you in the future :-)

mp3 is the latest and the most popular audio format that is used now. This acronym stands for MPEG layer 3. It is a compressed audio format with a compression rate of up to 12:1. The sound quality of the audio in this format is very high.
