Social Network of your choice. (57)

Which Social Network is, in your opinion, the best one?

I personally like FaceBook.com. It has an exclusive feel to it due to the closed off 'networks', the features are solid and include little bits of ajax everywhere, the administrators seem to care about the site, and then the userbase is fairly large [10+ million?]. Not to mention the Google-like user interface is great.

Also, don't even bother to mention MySpace, please.

I socially networked everyone in my e-mailer.

IRC

5 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-13 19:20 ID:i11T/dT5

As for me, I guess it's IRC as well.

6 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-13 20:06 ID:O96AphNs

indeed IRC.

7 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-13 21:39 ID:HNx0v4n3

I used to like Facebook until it opened to high schools and got all these corporate and profitable features. Now it's just IRC for me. I hope another network like Facebook comes up soon.

ICQ/AIM, for actually talking to most of my friends when I'm online, and besides that mostly IRC.

So, we're all a bunch of geeks in here, I guess.

9 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-13 22:32 ID:Heaven

Internet.

10 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-14 00:00 ID:Heaven

AIM, Google Talk, COMMODE on SDF, IRC

11 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-14 01:54 ID:D9UuLNrz

How do I addicted to IRC?

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-14 16:46 ID:xQuYqxbD

>>11
Find a channel full of cool people. I recommend #geekissues to start out.

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-15 19:57 ID:Heaven

>>11
What >>12 said. Or, if you're a wapanese, join the channel of your favourite fansub group. Or join the 4-ch irc channel. Get a good client that can do OSD notifications so you can easily follow IRC channels while doing important stuff, I like Konveration, the client that comes with KDE.

14 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-16 02:44 ID:2IE5Kro8

Facebook, until it went public.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-20 14:46 ID:aQ7I/F6p

>>13
lol, #4-ch sucks. They're all assholes and they don't talk anyway.

Google Talk is a good client, but I don't know of that many people that use it. I mainly use it as an e-mail notifier.

16 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-20 17:49 ID:Heaven

> lol, #4-ch sucks. They're all assholes and they don't talk anyway.

there's nothing wrong with being an asshole and not talking. isn't that what irc is for?

17 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-21 05:26 ID:yw39axWr

>>16
good point

18 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-21 21:56 ID:i0G/Eu31

>>15
Google Talk is a client for the Jabber network. You can talk to anyone who uses Jabber.

19 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-21 23:50 ID:Heaven

>>18
Of all people I know, online and IRL, there are exactly two that use Jabber (Or Google Talk). I don't really have a clue why Jabber isn't more widespread, but right now my Jabber ID's only function is to take up space in my IM client's "Active Connections" bar.

20 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-22 06:22 ID:i0G/Eu31

>>19
I dunno either. I use Jabber and I convinced a few friends to use it too. Its advantages over AIM, which like everyone uses, are

  • offline messages
  • doesn't give me "Rate to client" errors for sending too much, just because I type fast. I get those on AIM all the time.
  • doesn't assume a less-than sign is the start of an HTML tag, and swallow all text

Come to think of it, the last one might be the client I'm using. Anyway, offline messages are well worth the switch in my opinion. Otherwise to carry on a conversation you have to wait online constantly => obsession and time-wasting.

21 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-22 07:15 ID:Heaven

> offline messages

you should use e-mail for that.
and there are ways to do offline messages on aim.

> doesn't give me "Rate to client" errors for sending too much, just because I type fast. I get those on AIM all the time.

yeah, that does suck.

> doesn't assume a less-than sign is the start of an HTML tag, and swallow all text
> Come to think of it, the last one might be the client I'm using.

yeah, that's probably the client you're using.

22 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-22 20:26 ID:i0G/Eu31

Email is ok as a way of sending information, but it isn't the same as a conversation. Too formal, too mixed in with junk, too easy to forget to reply, and it's not built to handle lots of short messages.

If by "there are ways" you mean the various bot services that will deliver messages on AIM, the message will come from a bot, so again, it's not the same as having a conversation. Also, nobody I know uses those.

23 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-25 21:20 ID:C1eoYkrG

MSN Messenger.

24 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-26 06:19 ID:Heaven

>>23
takes more than 5 minutes to sign on. AIM only takes about 1/4 of a second.

25 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-11-01 04:19 ID:0FqBGBNn

>>24 I takes me like 2 seconds, it must just be your problem.

26 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-11-01 09:30 ID:Heaven

>>25
i've had the same problem with 4 different computers, 4 different isps, and 3 different clients (msn messenger, gaim, and kopete). i think that makes it microsoft's problem.

27 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-11-02 04:28 ID:0FqBGBNn

>>26 Maybe you should man up, and stop whining.

28 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-11-02 09:28 ID:Heaven

>>27 Maybe you should man up, and stop being Microsoft's bitch.

>>28 Maybe you should man up, and go fuck yourself. Wait...that's the only person you fuck, sorry.

No manual entry for up

Jabber, mail, IRC and LiveJournal. Mmmm. Drama.

35 Name: Strategist !7kcmroGQIs : 2007-04-18 01:27 ID:hlIS73nb

Myspace is a bit slow I agree. But you shouldn't even try to use it if you have dial up..Do you have Dial up?

36 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-05-03 00:23 ID:fKEbTks4

Best social networking site is easily the Nag's Head around the corner.

37 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-05-03 01:56 ID:sNk8+rrr

I use myspace, but it is getting to the point where I would rather talk to a wall.

Real life social networking for the win!

38 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-10 19:18 ID:NSQlmFA6

usually use aim or msn
i have a myspace, but i don't really use it too much

39 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-13 02:04 ID:zJ1+hF56

I use Mixi.

Try mirrors, that rocks and you can look like a badass psychopath. ;)

41 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-15 14:28 ID:x2p3/3W9

What, social networks are a product and/or service now? I prefer the one that consists of my real friends and (to a lesser degree) acquaintances.

Can you beat that, Orkut? Huh?

42 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-16 22:51 ID:npH80kCj

>>41
What are "friends"?

43 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-22 14:41 ID:7KkC0iXK

i have a myspace, mainly because everyone else i know does. same with livejournal. i think gmail has the potential to be the ultimate SN site, actually... dunno if it'll go that way, though.

i have a facebook, but as far as i can tell it is totally worthless. private profiles are the death of a social network, and are starting to make myspace even less useful (if that's possible).

44 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-24 23:39 ID:npH80kCj

Facebook b/c the profiles don't look absolutely retarded like myspace, also less AIDS but slowly it's becoming myspace.

45 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-25 00:42 ID:gaj4DOOA

facebook is fucking fascist, not only is it nonfunctional and hideous but everyone is forced to have the exact same nonfunctional hideous profile. the next friendster.

46 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-25 03:05 ID:Heaven

i prefer anonymous text boards.
that way no one can tell that there are only six of us here.

47 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-06-25 06:09 ID:Heaven

I prefer to just e-mail the NSA all my personal information, and spare them the wasted bandwidth from data mining.

48 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-21 18:27 ID:LlG0/Sba

i do agree with >>46

i rarely use em, i have facebook n mixi
but when i got bored or just wanna kill time, imvu would work on it.

49 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-23 18:53 ID:NrnrIPsn

I use orkut because everyone I know use it

50 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-23 21:55 ID:pvdRhWeV

i had orkut, though that's kinda dead now I think.
I haven't bothered getting Myspace or Facebook, primarily because myspace is shit and I reckon facebook will just end up being replaced by some new fad site of the month. Facebook also has some pretty sus when it comes to privacy and the collection of personal data.

51 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-24 23:54 ID:aysBbbVQ

I have a Melodramatic, which kinda is the First SN site if you don't consider Livejournal a SN site and instead just a private blog. The people there aren't as fucking gay as in Myspace or whatever, but you'll see many more poets, emos, and gays there. It's a tradeoff, but the level of stupidity on melodramatic.com is much MUCH lower than many other SN sites.

52 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-04 15:22 ID:hSxEVVQI

Does newsvine.com count... kinda is... kinda better, kinda has a point?

53 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-06 05:56 ID:dnIymJRJ

>>52
lol, you think you are spending your time wisely on the internet

54 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-07 05:49 ID:XeLONVox

I like facebook, but only because basically everyone at my college is on it. I don't really like the layout, but at least it beats myspace.

55 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-07 15:41 ID:LlR+/2bO

noone invites me to mixi.
i just browse gree.

56 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-09 21:01 ID:GC6LVbRg

no last.fm users?
but thats how I always felt using it, its not all that much of a SN site anyways..

57 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2018-05-30 01:22 ID:lKQuHwZC

I use Mastodon a lot.
