I often use social networks to help my teaching. I am a member of PEUniverse.com and use it often. PEUniverse.com is a little like youtube and facebook combined where users post videos of there lesson for others to see and comment on. LinkedIn seems like a more for the business world. I am a member of MACUL Space and it seems well made and easy to use.
I tried to make my own social network, just for fun, but the MSU AFS didn’t meet the requirements for buddypress.
Personally, I use Facebook everyday to keep in touch with my friends. Some of the teachers at my school have created facebook pages for their classes. I sometimes spend way too much time on Facebook. Some of my friends have tried to get rid of their facebook but always go back.

Traditional web pages are hard to modify because you need to upload new files. Blogs make it very easy to modify content because you can post right on the blog. Most traditional web pages did not have places for users to make comments. With blogs, the owner can have it set up so anyone can add their comments.
