Because of this, I cited my top 3 social networking sites on the web. Kung saan meron akong account, at active ako. And some are those sites that influenced others to use not just for connecting friends but also sharing their thoughts and feelings.
Facebook - Sino ba ang walang Facebook ngayon? Diba halos lahat meron na? Even the janitor, teacher, students and the President of the country merong Facebook. Even the celebrities, politicians are using Facebook. Users may create a personal profile, add other users as friends and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common interest user groups, organized by workplace, school, or college, or other characteristics. Facebook is not just a social networking, but it is also a micro-blogging site. You can post whatever you want and you can write a comment about it, or even like a single post of your friends. You can also share your photos and videos online. Pero ang gusto ko sa Facebook is that you can easily get connected with your friends using Facebook Chat, ala Yahoo Messenger ang dating. All-in-one Social Networking with almost half a billion users worldwide, mostly Chinese and Filipino users. Facebook launched in February 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow computer science students Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.
Plurk - it is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send updates (otherwise known as plurks) through short messages or links, which can be up to 140 text characters in length. I started using Plurk last 2009 and at first, mahirap pa siyang gamitin. Though through exploring its features, I found it very nice and convenient. Mas maganda ang Plurk compared to Twitter because in every Plurk posts, pwede kang magcomment regarding that post. The cool thing behind this micro-blogging site is that you can customize your profile, just like Friendster. For Philippine Plurk users, you can update your Plurk via sending your SMS posts by GladlyCast.com. Ito ang ginagamit ko to aim the Karma 100. the good thing about Plurk is that I can connect my Plurk posts to my Facebook and Twitter Accounts.
Twitter - is a website, owned and operated by Twitter Inc., which offers a social networking and microblogging service, enabling its users to send and read other users' messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user's profile page. Tweets are publicly visible by default, however senders can restrict message delivery to their friends list. Users may subscribe to other author tweets—this is known as following and subscribers are known as followers. As of late 2009, users can follow lists of authors instead of just following individual authors. The good thing about Twitter is that you can follow your favorite celebrities. Most of the celebrities use Twitter.
Those are my top 3 social networking sites. Meron akong mga accounts niyan. Kayo, what's your top 3 social networking sites?
