The Changing Face Of Social Networking - Move Over MySpace, There's A New Kid In Town

The social networking industry is rapidly growing and introducing new concepts, relationships and experiences online. MySpace is one of the largest social networking sites with more than 100 million reported members since its inception in 2003, and more than 255,000 new members joining every day. Facebook is beginning to gain ground, achieving more unique users than MySpace for the first time in 2007 and seeing more active and frequent daily visitors than MySpace in 2008. As new players continue to enter the social networking space, there is a clear need to understand how current social networking users perceive these new sites and to identify what key features are required to prevent loyal users from being wooed by the ever growing competition.

Highlights

* 68% of consumers currently use a social networking site
* 80% are likely to use a social networking site in the next year
* 76% of users are likely to communicate with friends they know online
* Among ages 13-19, users significantly prefer Facebook (51%) over MySpace (36%)
* Among ages 30-39, users significantly prefer MySpace (34%) over Facebook (16%)
* 71% of users find Facebook easy to use, compared to only 54% on MySpace
* Facebook is also rated more secure; While MySpace offers more customization

me either.

Funny though, I have both, but I have always felt Facebook was more complicated, not TOO complicated, but just more time consuming I guess would be the best way to put it.

Second Life is like a sim kind of "world", if you will. It's not a networking thing, per se, but like playing the Sims with people around the world. People buy imaginary land, islands, nightclubs, etc...with REAL money. Apparently, there is an assload of money to be made off of this monster, people should really look into it. I, myself, haven't really gotten addicted to it like most, I just don't have the time.

I think the site is www.secondlife.com

link me Marc, I'll be your friend

I'm playing around on there now.

As far as music, is it gaining in popularity, does it have features comparable to Myspace?

I tried to get into Sims, but just couldn't...I can hardly keep track of my own life much less a virtual one LOL

I read a book where one of the characters was into the Second Life or whatever and he was handsome, suave, strong, and drove a Maserati (sp) but in real life he was a fat, loser, slob with a shitty car.

I like facebook because of the Texas Hold Em App...that's about all.

Yeah Second Life is crazy. People make sims of their alter egos and though it's all supposed to be "in fun," I know a few people who are way more addicted to it than anyone has probably ever been to Myspace or Facebook.

I played it for a while, and it's hard to get used to, but I can see how it would be addicting as hell.
