Definition and examples of social network sites ...

"Social Network Sites: A Definition

We define social network sites as web-based services that allow individuals to (1) construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, (2) articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and (3) view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site.

They have also published an interesting "Social Network Totem Pole" that illustrates the history of Social Networks."    (Continued via Confusability)    [Usability Resources]
