How Many Social Networks Do You Belong To?

I may have breathed an audible sigh of relief when I heard that Google was launching Google Profiles, a hub for all your social networks.

Over the years, I've signed up for about 800 social networks (a rough estimate), have only consciously deleted one profile, and am only using an amount I can count on my hands at any given moment.

I'd love to claim that the high number of networks I belong to is purely an occupational hazard, but I tend to get excited about new networks regardless — there's always some cool new angle. But yes, I do have that worlds colliding fear, and yes, I definitely need to delete some more profiles!

Honestly, I'm too scared to count up the networks I'm on, so you tell me instead — how many social networks do you belong to?

Hmm.Flickr, twitter, Good Reads, linkedin, and team sugar. I think that's it. I think I still have a tumblr and livejournal but I don't really use them.

3...myspace, facebook and twitter. I started on myspace...but most of my friends has hoped over to facebook, I hardly use myspace anymore...I only keep it around cause there are a few friends I wanna keep in contact with who refuse to join FB. Twitter is something new I just started on..its pretty fun :)

I forgot about livejournal! Oh man, that was back in the day! I only have one that I actively use - teamsugar. Although, does having a blog on blogger count as social networking?

Way too many. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, LiveJournal, and MySpace are the main ones, but I recently went in and updated my profile on classmates.com, and realized I definitely have joined more initially only to discover it wasn't as awesome as it originally seemed. I am also a part of several inCircles with various organizations... basically they try to have their own exclusive facebook but it's never quite as good! And who wants to be exclusive?

Just two, Teamsugar and Facebook. I don't really see any point in getting more, since all my friends use Facebook and my only goal when joining was to connect with my friends more. It's done its job, so why join more?

Facebook! Twitter! (though it's not really social networking is it ... just like a mass text messaging type thing ..) annd Tumblr! Tumblr's quite fun.

Less than 50 but over 25 social networks due to work & various social advocacy reasons. Personally only a few. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo, MSN, Wordpress, Vox, OnSugar(which is here), Friendfeed, Flickr, Linkln, OpenID, & golly even though they r time consuming, u know tips & tricks of privacy settings after a while.
