To many networks

Of course there is Vox.

There is myspace (only because I want to keep in touch with long lost friends and family). 

There is LinkedIn.

I have a Writer's Cafe account.

I also have a couple of different library account that I can't even remember.

then there is pseudo networking flickr.

I check few of these accounts on a regular basis and very few of them network me to anyone or anything useful. 

Do they really work?

Vox is the only social site that works for me, this might be because it is the only one I put any effort into though, I tried fiendster and myspace both of which are way to juvenile for my taste, and linkin only works if you have lots of friends to begin with (if I did why would i need a social networking site?)

i don't know if it works for other people... but i've had some good luck with blogger and vox. i've met some super cool people. and some of my closest friends that i have now i met through blogger... and i talk to lots of people on vox (i just haven't met them in person)... i am staying away from facebook... and i just keep my myspace account just because i've had it for a while...

Blogger was okay, but finding people was totally random. Vox has been awesome for me. Modblog was good while it lasted. I am not in high school so myspace isn't all that. Linked in was supposed to be for professional networking, but I only have people I already know in there. If one of my friends wants to offer me a job, I hope he/she just calls.I don't know what to think of Writer's Cafe. There is a lot of really bad writing on there.
