Below is a list of all the social networks I use and what I think about them. At the end I will list my personal favorites and i invite you all to publish links to your own profiles below.
Ziki.com – I like this because it gives me free personal advertising. I think they spend like 10 bucks a month per person. Free being my favorite part
Twitter – This one is cool because by following certain people i keep up to date on trends in the marketplace
BlogCatalog – I use for getting people to both my blog and my company’s blog. Its also a cool place to meet other bloggers,
Digg – I use as my general news service and i follow 1 friend at the moment, hopefully more will develop
LinkedIn – A great professional network. Bad thing about it is there are not alot of communication opportunities between networkers besides a Q&A section
YouTube – Video Uploading site. Could be great for viral marketing but theres so much competition out there its hard
Jyte – Fun community full of free thinking OpenID enabled humans where you make claims about things. Not so good for advertising i guess but i think its addicting
gooruze.com – This site is good for Internet Marketers looking to give back to the community and actually learn. The site is spam free and I would appreciate it if it stayed that way 🙂
Wink – this is an interesting site in that it collects all of your social networking profiles into one page and users can search a master database to find all of your pages.
ning – here you can create your own social networks. this could be great for establishing your brand or company is leaders within your industry if you can develop a large enough following.
Facebook – one of the first biggens. It started off for colleges and now can be used by anyone.
Myspace – other than friendster this was probably the first biggen. In my opinion it is too loaded with spam.
MyBlogLog – youll see the widget for this site on a lot of blogs. This site is very similar to BlogCatalog however i don’t think it has as much activity
Orkut – Google’s version of a social network
FriendFeed – this site brings all of your feeds across multiple networks together.
Plaxo – This is an excellent resource to network and share. The site allows you to share links, messages, pics and more. It also displays all of your feeds as a “pulse”.
* My favorites are currently gooruze.com, plaxo, and twitter.
Please comment and add your own favorite networks and/or your profile links

A very nice list of sites.
great overview, thanks
Thanks for mentioning gooruze Jon. And thanks for a great list.
I would add zookoda.com. It is a great tool for turning your blog feed into an e-newsletter for those readers who still don’t utilize RSS or reader services.
Thanks for linking to this on the Ning discussion thread. I really like the concise summaries you have provided for these networking sites. I’ll probably continue to stick with Twitter as well.
