SOCIAL NETWORKS

http://www.orkut.com

Description: Orkut is a social network, with a vast amount of communities about everything you can possible imagine, from serious stuff like photography, jobs and health discussing forums, to useless things like communities with titles like “Love is a special thing”, or “I hate waking up early”. It can be a useful tool to meet new people and admiting people by looking at their orkut profile, which can tell a lot about people’s personalities. 3/5 STARS *

http://www.facebook.com

Description: Another social network, with a very different interface from that of Orkut, giving priority to the seach field. Its search field uses an intelligent system, which looks for surnames and kinship, and it does the job very well. Lots of people have found someone of their family or a friend whom they did not see for a long time through this network. 4/5 STARS*

http://www.couchsurfing.com

Description: A social network made only for travelers. It gives the user the chance to host someone at his/her house, by talking to the person who whishes to be a guest at the host’s place. When the user wants to go to a city, he/she can use this network for asking people (through messages) if they can host the user at their place. Everyone has a profile and also comments from other people about their experiences at the place of the host. It also possible to offer a place, so if the user wants to offer his/her place to someone who is coming to the city of the user he/she can. It’s like an exchange, because users can both host and be guests. And most important, give the users the chance to know if the host is good and reliable. 5/5 STARS*

http://www.woophy.com

Description: This is a social network directed to photographers. They open an account, and then a profile is created for them. This profile contains information about the photographer and his equipment. They can create albuns, having to write the country the photo was taken in order to help people to find photographs from the places they like. It’s possible to comment on the pictures as well. Navigation through the network is user friendly. 4/5 STARS*
