Quick Reference: Social Networking Sites (Webopedia)

The latest tech reference covering the basics of what a social network site (SNS) is, the history of, security and privacy concerns, and links to some different SNS was posted over on Webopedia.com this morning.

“‘Social networking services, also called social networking sites (SNS), are designed to build upon interactions to create communities of people online, and provide the required software to do this. Web-based social networking spaces offer a way for individuals or groups to create a profile of themselves, then share that profile with other members of the social networking space. The specific site also provides a variety of ways for users to communicate with others in the space, such as instant messaging and chat rooms, e-mail or site mail (used only use through the service), notes and blogs, file sharing, forums or other types of discussion groups, videos, and so on.”
