    If you can connect with with others it's social enough. Beyond that the label is really not something worth worrying about -- the question is what opportunity the network and it's features offer for interacting and if those amount to enough value to you.

    i agree with Ted, it doesn't matter whether it's business or professional. If you're doing it for business reasons, networking is networking no matter what site you join. IMO, forums, like this one, are just other types of social media.

    Xing is a European social networking site for professional and chime is new to me. Remember, social media is a new kind of mass media. It depends completely on you how you use them.

    @Shyflower: I have joined IMO few weeks before, and provide my hotmail. But, I haven't get verification mail yet. Does IMO not support hotmail account?

    Have you really, now? You must not know that IMO is an acronym for "in my opinion"?

    I'd really like to see the link to that one. imo.com is underdevelopment as a memorial to the domain owner's grandfather, imo.org come up not available, and imo.net is the international meteor organization. Which of these is the social networking site you joined?

    Thank you. It looks like that is a messaging site. Hmmm, that makes me wonder. Internet messaging is something we have not yet discussed in Social Media, but it is indeed Social.

    @shaadishoppe ; my apologies. I don't know why they wouldn't accept your hotmail since they allow you to log in with MSN as well as several other Social Media accounts. Looks like their documentation needs some work. If you can find a support link there, use it, otherwise you should be able to log in with a different account if you have one.
