So as far as I can tell My Space is on the outs. I still have a space, with over 12,000 friends I might add, I'm just saying things are not the same. Now people just paste ads all over your page. Me included. It used to be a great place to connect with people and find other crafty goodness.
This being the case I am moving on to greener pastures and trying to learn the nuisances of some different sites. My friend Susan invited me to join her on a new networking site for crafters called Lov.li and I signed up. Beyond signing up and adding a few friends I have not done a whole lot on Lov.li, but I think it has potential.
The cute little badge below is for Style Hive. I have been getting emails for at least a couple of years from Style Hive letting me know when someone has added me to their collection. You can add things you want to your "hive". You can follow other people that you think have great taste. For instance I found Tricia Royal of Bits and Bobbins and Wardrobe Remix and am following her and her impeccable taste. You can set up wish lits and all kinds of other cool options. I'm just starting to understand how it works.
If your on Stylehive click my badge and we can be friends, or followers, or however it works.
Speaking of fashion another networking site I signed up for is Iqons. The site seems pretty cool, but is really slow and has a few kinks they need to work out. Like it is so slow I can't get the link to my page to pull up. My guess is the site is taking off and more people are getting on there than they expected.
Yesterday on Etsy I read about a site called Ma.gnolia. From what I can tell the site is an online place to share your favorite website links. There are also groups you can join so I am a member of the Etsy group.
While learning Ma.gnolia someone mentioned two other sites I was not familiar with called Technorati which is something to do with blogs, but I am not sure what. I also learned about Stumbleupon and Linked In.
I have a Facebook account too and once upon a time I had a Friendster accont, but I think I deleted that one. So many networking websites, so little time.
