Social Networking Redux

So, I'm currently using the following (to one extent or another):

Livejournal (of course)
identi.ca (new)
ping.fm (new)
LinkedIn (this one is daddy_guido's fault) - I use it mostly for work stuff
plaxo pulse
Skype (both for work and for home - two different IDs)
Gizmo (not so much - but it shows promise)
AIM (almost not at all, but I do still have a screen name)
ICQ (again not very much - mostly because I don't like installing clients)
del.icio.us (kinda)
gmail (and how...)
iName (although I haven't really found a use for it yet)
outside.in (still testing)
slide (haven't found a need for it yet)

So - my question is - What are you using that I'm not currently using, that you think I might be interested in using (or that you think I should be using)?

I think you have too much time on your hands.....

See, that's what I get for not taking an MBA (yet, anyway).

It'll probably get more difficult in the fall when I start taking classes at UIS, though.

So what exactly are you using all these services for? Do they each fill a certain niche or is it just blanket coverage?

oh and Pandora has started to add some social functions as well. If you're not using Pandora you should be.

I forgot Pandora...
I'm not using it a lot (yet) because I like iTunes more (mostly because I like to listen to specific songs).

I have noticed that Pandora plays a lot more reliably than launch.yahoo.com does...

Re: I forgot Pandora...
I used to use yahoo a lot... then I switched to Pandora. Once I get a new MP3 player I'll use that when I want to listen to stuff I know I like. Pandora is good for finding new stuff.

It depends...
The ones I actually -use- serve a niche. Some are old, some I joined because of a friend or something (who may not even be there anymore).
The problem is keeping up with them...

Maybe when I get time I'll go through and post about why I use each one of them...

Re: It depends...
Spend less time social networking and more time telling us why you're using these social networks. :) Be social dammit!!!!

Livejournal (of course)
LinkedIn (this one is daddy_guido's fault)
Skypegmail (and how...)

So, there you go, my list is far more pruned down. I probably wouldnt be using linkedin if it werent for spudmonkey. Gmail, well, yeah.
