making sense of social

Social Networks

Social networking sites were initially sites where each user created a profile and was able to add other users to their network. The medium has grown, absorbing features from other areas of social media, so whilst they are their own genre, their feature sets overlap heavily with other tools. Most large social networks, including Facebook and MySpace all include blogging, instant messaging, internal messaging, bulletin board as well as much other functionality.
