Devote Yourself to creating something that gives you purpose . . .

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

Ning, Facebook, and Twitter

If any of you were wondering how Facebook, Twitter, and Ning differ in social network sites, I found a brief explanation from the CEO of Ning that created a simple explanation. Rather than paraphrase her, I'll just quote her.

In an interview with CNN, Gina Bianchini, CEO of Ning explains what makes Ning different from other social networking sites. “It’s focused on providing the [means for] people to create new social networks around their interests and passions and connect new people around those passions. We think that's a very critical element of organization. The Facebook phenomenon connects you to people you already know and Twitter is amazing for news and real-time events. What we see with people who gravitate to Ning is meeting new people with similar interests.”

There are many social networking groups forming on the Internet; based on your own experience, what social networking groups do you find to be the most useful, and why?
