Cloud Computing: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ Head Top 10 Social Networks
The social-network market expansion continued at its breakneck pace in 2011, led by Facebook and its massive assemblage of more than 800 million users worldwide. But Facebook isn't for everyone, or at least, it's not for everyone all the time. There are plenty of other information-sharing Websites in the social sea. There is LinkedIn for the business-minded and Google+ for those who grew tired of the current market leader and are looking for an alternative. There is Twitter for those who like to sound off to their friends in short bursts. There are also plenty of smaller blogging platforms that enable easy sharing of links, photos, videos and blog posts. This eWEEK slide show provides a view of the world's top 10 social platforms.
