BlogHeiress Blogs And Social Networks


Look To The Right For The Newest Posts and For Individual Pages On Specific Blogs and Social Networks 😉

The explosion of social networks available on the Internet today is quite overwhelming. Which one will suit me? Which one will I enjoy and use and contribute to? These questions and more flood the minds of all Internet users when confronted with the onslaught of choices in the blogs and social networks categories presented for membership.

Most every social network is offered free to become a member, participate in groups and forums, and meet friends and associates. There are status upgrades offered on some sites, but these upgrades are not mandatory to enjoy and offer contributions to the site. You will get a member page to set up a short introduction of yourself, your likes and dislikes and a bit of flare about you.

You decide who gets to view your information from everyone on the net to only a select bunch of friends, you choose how much information is even seen by theses friends if you wish to be anonymous.

Listing the highlights and specialties of each of the social network sites.

The first site in review will be the biggest! MySpace!

Once you have mastered the MySpace environment, you will feel very comfortable exploring the other sites out there. With the 221,000,000 + member sites, the layout choices, music, 43,000,000 + groups, 22 major forum topics with numerous minor topics, multi category classified section, colors, flavors, sights, and sounds, I would call MySpace the New York City of social networks equipped with Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Harlem, and Queens. Each with their own flare for expression, it is all a mix of cultures and preferences with close knit sub-communities linked to the masses.

An eclectic adventure awaits beyond the doors of MySpace, I hope to see you there. If you are new to social web sites, check out my article series on “How To MySpace”, these will get you started.

How To Spice Up Your MySpace Page

Have you had a chance to visit Tagged yet?

This is a fun and relatively easy site to get started on. Everything seems to be in “fast mode” here. You quickly choose your profile background, requesting friends is a breeze, write in your journal, add a You Tube video, photos, all the perks of the “big guys” just in speedy mode. You can have fun with your friends and send them “Tags”…they’re it! A great site to make some awesome friends. Put up your mEgo here to add a bit of your artistic side to the mix. Let’s say Tagged is like the Metro in Chicago….. There’s always something happening. Sometimes at Tagged, there may be “not for younger eyes” viewing, so keep that in mind while you surf around 😉

I did a bit of a segway into mEgo there, so I thought we could visit their site next. mEgo is your interactive, portable profile to create and enjoy on sites like Live Journal, FaceBook, MySpace, Xanga, Hi5, Friendswin, Blogger, BlackPlanet, and more. All in One, interactive, and portable, what more could you want in a profile organizer? Change your look with photos, avatars, and animations. Equip your mEgo with feeds and content to share a bit of yourself with your web friends. We’ll call mEgo the Italy of the social network world.

I thought we take a walk over to the business district of Wall Street and visit Direct Matches. Welcome to the Internets 24 hour convention. This is a brilliant site where business men and women can meet, network, and create long standing relationships. The center stage is strictly business, with a backdrop of a welcoming, comfortable coffee shop. Enjoyable atmosphere in a bustling district.

Time for a visit to music central, Project Playlist. We’ll liken this to Beale Street, Memphis. Get the “Music Buzz”, search for tunes by artist, title, or browse member playlists. Their mission statement conveys a love and passion for the music industry, “Our view is that the more people share their individual passion for music by sharing playlists, the more music will be created, and the more the entire music industry will grow.” Read More… About Project Playlist

Stopping off in Colorado ski country, we come to Twitter. Twitter is a cool little break off the beaten path. A vacation of sorts with findings and followings, word bubbles and blurbs, featured players and a public timeline. I’ve been told that Twitter is even more fun when used through your mobile phone or instant messenging service. Take a glide down the slopes of Twitter and set yours up. Turn it “on” press send and “off” when you sleep.

Giving kudo’s where deserved and bringing up a very close, prominent second place in the blogs and social networks community is Facebook. A Harvard castle of a maze where around every corridor there is a surprise and a new friend. If you’ve ever taken a look at a map of Cambridge, MA., the hub of Harvard sits in the center of spokes and avenues of discovery. Such is the life of Facebook while you poke, smile at, or give gifts to your network. Check events, groups, photos, and the marketplace while discovering a space on the web to get lost and discover yourself.

Having found Meez through Photobucket, I found it fitting to stroll through the paparazzi playhouse of La Dolce Vita along the coast of the Ionian Sea. Photobucket, where 60 million people manage their media, upload videos and photo memories, sharing everywhere from MySpace and e-mail, to Blogger, LiveJournal, and Facebook. Find MySpace icons, popular photos and videos, and other cool and crazy stuff. Enjoy and recreate new visions on Photobucket. Take time to “Digg” someones impressions.

Another segway? Isn’t our journey going smoothly through the travels of blogs and social networks? Time to venture into the information highway of World News that is Atlanta, Georgia. All news, videos, images, and podcasts. To Digg or not to Digg, that is the question here. Come to a Digg Town Hall Meeting, the very first on February 25th, 2008, to get what’s happening. Can you Digg it?

John says:

While reading this article, and I was struck that it probably was relevant to a social networking site, HumanBook, which has over 250 million profiles of people, including you, your friends, classmates and relatives.

The HumanBook is a mutually managed people directory. People list their own real-life connections, and other connections they have awareness of, to create a lifelong network. The network houses the connections, and then the collaboratively updated address book nurtures them, assuring that they need never be lost. HumanBook is the tool that will allow you to cherish and sustain all of the connections of your whole life. So if you’re interested, go to and find your profile today!

Carole says:

Nice write ups. Give me an idea about different sites I might be interested in visiting. Especially nice write up about Friendswin.

Bryan says:

There are now thousands of social networks that cater to a whole variety of subjects. These smaller, focused sites allow users to connect with like-minded people and give advertisers targeted demographics. Niche social networks are also good for marketers who have a product or service they want to promote that relates to a particular interest. A good place to find such sites is a search engine that caters specifically to social networks such as
