What are online social networks?

There are lots of online social networks that let you chat with other Internet users.
You create your own profile and user name and fill in a few details about your likes and dislikes. Once you’ve done that, you can add music, videos and photos to your profile that other people can comment on.
You can also leave messages and comments on your friends’ profiles.
They’re great when you want to chat, share photos and play games with your friends and other people interested in the same things as you.
Social networks you may have heard of include:

  • MySpace
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Bebo
  • FriendFeed
  • YouTube
  • Flickr.
