I came across this article in The New York Times during my daily news browsing, which claims to “[offer] a handy clip-’n’-save guide to the social networking services you’re most likely to hear about at this summer’s barbecues”. While people who are following me on this blog may not find it very helpful, it was interesting in the arguments that the author gave in terms of pros and cons for using each of these websites. Similarly, I was intrigued to see which popular social networking sites got prominently reviewed – and which were ignored altogether.
If you were writing an article to review “relevant” social networking sites, what would you include? And did you think the criticisms and accolades mentioned in this article were fair?
