Hopefully this doesn't break any rules as this survey is for educational means and I'm simply a student needing responses for a project. I'd appreciate it if anyone took the time to fill this out: http://www.surveytool.com/s/SC68886A23
All responses are anonymous and feel free to discuss any questions in this thread. You may not want to fill out the survey if you've never used a social networking website before. The survey is very short. Thanks. [I'm looking for 100 responses, some have already been taken]
This is what I would define as a social network for those wondering:
(1) A website
(2) That allows you to communicate with others in some way.
(3) It may also allow you to express yourself specifically instead of some random username/avatar. On social networking sites you represent your real self instead of posing as an anonymous user.
This is the definition I look at atleast. Sorry, it is a term used thrown around quite often with no definition too specific.
