According to the 2010 Social Networking Websites Review, the top five social networking sites are Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, Friendster, and Hi5.
Social networking allows people to keep in touch with their family and friends, reconnect with old friends, meet new ones and create a real life friendship. They can share their interest by joining groups and forums as well. Some social networking can help members find jobs and can even help establish business contacts.
Social networking sites also offer special features like the option to design their profiles that reflect their personality or emotion. Music and video sections are also popular extra features.
Social networking sites are evaluated by the profiles they offer, the security it gives to its members, networking features that their members can use, search option, help and support option for ay queries by the members, and much more.
Facebook is one of the best social networks for finding people. Although Facebook profiles can not be customized, their platform is very slick and clean. Facebook is focused on interactions. If you are looking for a friend in Dubai, you just might find them through Facebook.
MySpace has been known for being the largest social networking site in the world. It allows its users to customize their profile pages to make it look more colorful and unique. Some members go over the top with music playing immediately after opening a friend's page. MySpace focuses on the music industry. If you ever want to look for a band to find out where their next concert might be, MySpace is the place to find them.
Bebo, which has just been bought by AOL, is a social network that is more popular in UK and Ireland. It focuses on artists and bands. However this network does not stand out from the crowd. Profiles can be customized but nothing like MySpace.
Friendster is another social networking site that focuses on interactions like Facebook. What makes it different from Facebook though is that with Friendster, users can customize their pages and add music or videos too.
Hi5 is a social network that is used more by older generations. When it was first launched, Hi5 spent a lot of time spamming a lot of people into joining which actually worked since there are now millions of users online. Hi5 does not really have a focus yet this social network is still growing in all markets.
If you want to express yourself, share your interests, find a long lost friend, meet new ones and keep in touch with a family member, then join a social network that applies well to you.
