#18 - Social Networking
I have heard a great deal about social networking sites, but have never spent much time on them. The articles were helpful in putting the topic in a context for me. I think talking about whether social networking sites are good or bad is irrelevant as they are here to stay. I know in the library, the first thing the kids do when they come in after school is hit myspace or something along those lines. While I don't feel the impulse myself, I found this section helpful for to understand why and how people use social networking sites. As for are they helpful? Anything information sharing site can be helpful, but it seems to me that some of the other options we have explored might be more useful in a work environment.
