Social networks need a purpose

Some insightful commentary on social networks can be found on this post by Dan Gillmor. And yes, I meant on, and not in, since Dan didn't have much to say other than he didn't see the point. His informal social network that comments on his postings, on the other hand, did bring some light to the subject matter.

Most did see little value also, although they attempted to explain why. They seemed to work best when they had a purpose or mimicked your real life social network. Perhaps the best noted that Dan's online social network consists of those who comment on his blog. Hmmm, blogs with comments as social networks. I guess I'll have to figure out how to make that work here, or at least post a feedback email...
