The explosion in the use of these social networking sites is amazing. Down here in Australia even politicians are getting into the act. Though this has brought much derision -- especially regarding the irony of oldies trying a youngster's medium to spread their messages.

Hi Jeff, Long time reader, first time commenter etc. I think you have a point about the explosion of apps. As you were not an avid user in the pre-app days and you are of (ahem) a mature mind-set; you probably won't remember the fever surround in various and numerous "trendy" groups. This still occurs to some extent but the feverish joining and leaving groups that look cool/funny on ones profile (while not really contributing) seems to have been replaced by adding and removing apps. Similarly these apps are usually not that useful but serve as an expression of individualism - that 120,000 people are also making! I am quiet interested in how this shift has affected the groups - my friends seem to have trimmed their groups to those which are of actual use to them. I expect this will happen to the apps when everyone gets over all this initial excitement. "I don’t think the fundamental ones have been invented yet." Try Myflickr and Mediafire.
