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.

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, 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?

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.

wow geeksugar - 800? i didn't know there were that many! i'm on twitter, facebook, myspace, the sugar network, bebo...and i don't use 2 of them. i wouldn't have time to keep track of any more!
leslievanhouten leslievanhouten 8 years
gosh, so many. I met my boyfriend on Friendster 5 years ago and way back, I had a livejournal...I'm sure it's still there. And Makeout Club, which was for indie types before all of this. I use facebook, twitter and LinkedIn a lot. There are a lot of online aps like Flickr which have social networking aspects to them, but I don't consider them a full on social networking site. In this bucket, I'm on, flickr, upcoming, meetup, and a bunch that I can't remember.

I "belong" to about seven, but I only actively use Facebook and Twitter. I never filled out the profile on some of them.
