Social Networking

Social networking websites are online communities where users can create webpages or mini websites and link these to others who have the same interests and are on the same network. The best-known social networks are currently Facebook, Bebo and MySpace.

Social networking sites initially became popular with bands, musicians and film makers who wanted to build a fan base, sometimes while avoiding big businesses such as record companies. However now such networks are increasingly used by businesses specifically to reach particular demographics.

Although often seen as a youth phenomenon, older people are particularly active users of online networking sites.
