What is The Purpose to Have Social Network Service?

Why do people sign up for social network services? The main reason for having these services is to drive more traffic to your blog/website. If you run a business blog/website, getting more visitors will no doubt bring you more sales and thus gain more profits. Therefore getting more traffic to your blog/website through these social network services is really important. The list below shows the Free social network services I’ve signed up so far:

  • BlogRush – BlogRush is a “Cooperative Syndication Network.” It’s a network of blogs that run a small “widget” on their pages. Shut down by its owner.
  • Del.icio.us – Del.icio.us is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks.
  • Google Reader – With Google Reader, keeping up with your favorite websites is as easy as checking your email.
