Social Networking

You can check out my MySpace profile. I'm not a huge fan of MySpace. I guess people like the fact that you can modify and personalize the pages, but I think that just makes them illegible most of the time.

I use my profile on Facebook much more often. I find the interface much more user-friendly, and some of the applications are fun. I also find that most of the librarians I know use Facebook much more often than any of the other social networking sites, so it's better for staying in touch with colleagues. I've also founds some great groups on Facebook like Congress for the New Urbanism.

My Friendster profile was actually the first one I ever used. I hardly ever look at it anymore because most of my friends and acquaintances are on Facebook instead.

One of my thoughts in general about social networking sites is that people should be careful about privacy issues. I try to make sure my privacy settings are fairly high, and I try not to post anything that I might someday find embarrassing.
