Cautiously Networked

I just don’t know what to do with all of the social networking requests that I receive. It’s not that I’m popular, it’s that there are too many sites. Bebo, Namyz, and Spock are some of the recent ones that I decided not to join. I just don’t understand the value proposition of them as compared to the few sites that I am already a part of (LinkedIn and Facebook.)

Some cite the need to “stake their claim” on their name, but I don’t think that this argument applies to me since my name is so unusual. Go ahead, type Lura Lee in a search engine. I’ve got it locked up. There’s only one other Lura that is cited with any regularity on the internet, and she’s a black Capeverdean singer, who seems to be gaining some popularity.

So, if you want to send me an invitation to a new social networking website, I’d like you to give me a personal explanation for what that site does that is different or better than the ones that I’ve already populated. I don’t mean to be high-cost, or uncooperative. I’m open to the offer of some website that better meets my needs for membership, I just don’t see that this is the case for the aforementioned sites.
