While Bebo, Facebook, Bebo, hi5, MySpace, and Orkut, are among the better known general online social networks,
there is an ever-increasing number of online networks that have emerged for and within a wide variety of communities.
I am greatly interested in learning of Online Social Networks in These And/Or Other Communities
BTW: I Am Aware Of Many Other Communities With Online Social Networks But Am Asking The Web Communities For Their Suggestions.
ACADEME AND EDUCATION
Second Prime Time
RESEARCHERS AND SCHOLARS
Pronetos: The Social Network For Scholars
I am also interested in Major Web Sites That Have Compiled A Listing of Online Social Network Sites/Services As Well As Any/All Associated Literature.
BTW: I am aware of Social Networking Services Meta List made available on thesocialsoftwareweblog (but it's dated)
and of course List of Social Networking Websites from Wikipedia
And Recently Learned About SOCIAL NETWORKING GOD: 350+ Social Networking Sites
BTW-2: I am also aware of the Ning-based online social networks and Second Life
