Very basic question which you can find with simple search in google, better if you've asked "How do you use your social networks"? :)

You still didn't answer my question, why do you use social networks, but I suppose your answer was good too, so what dos everyone use social networks for?

It matters what type of social network it is. If it is a general social network, then most people use them to connect with firends and participate in a community.

If the social network is organized around a specific topic such as Peace is Active or InvestEveryMonth.com, then people are there to find out more about the specific topic and to ask questions about something very specific.

Research shows that participating in social networks gives people a sense fo belonging to a community as well as becoming more familiar with whatever topic is being discussed.

Not sure what you guys do online, but millions of people use social networks. Not only do they use them, but they can spend hours online while connecting with friends and participating in discussions.

That's what I'm here to find out, why they use social networks, maybe I will find merit in them.

Well, I use Facebook to keep in touch with people I've met in real life and know. I use Twitter to connect with people who share my same interests, and to get inspiration for new blog entries. So it really depends on the specific network.

Nowadays, people are using the social network sites to do marketing of their sites. But the main use of it is to make communication with customers, friends and to stay connected with them always.

aside from it being a great avenue to keep in touch with old friends and it being a means to meet new friends... not to mention all the fun things you can do there, social networking sites are a great tool to promote your site, blog, online business or what have you.... i have several accounts that link to my squidoo blog... if you find yourself in the 'neighborhood', feel free to drop by... :$ cheers!

I've been toying with the idea of using them but I've not really had the time to do so. Maybe I'll do so soon... who knows!

social networks give you a sense of place in a disconnected world. For businesses, it can keep and build customer bases in a very competative and portable environment.

I'm interested in what others are reading and talking about. I don't have the time to go through all the web pages out there to see what's going on, so I rely on social networks to find the information in the topics I am interested in.

It is also an effective way of getting quality backlinks and because social networks involves people from all walks of life, your business could easily be seen and delivered through your own network of friends, relatives and colleagues. It could somehow build traffic to your site and improve rankings as well.
