50 fresh social-networking and online community sites

Social networking sites have become so popular on today’s web. These sites allow members to register and connect with other users of the site in a real way — by sharing aspects of their lives or something specific, such as videos, photos, text or a combination of media types.

YouTube, Craigslist, Flickr, Digg, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Last.fm, Yahoo! Answers and Stickam are just a few of today’s social networking sites that are on their way towards becoming household names. However these aren’t the only online communities out there. Here are 50 fresh faces, all from my bookmarks on del.icio.us.
