_Connections: Online Social Networks  For Business_




While Facebook and MySpace are among the better-known general online social networks, there are an ever-increasing number of online networks that have emerged for and within a wide variety of communities. 


Among many others, these include networks for academe and education, people of color, Boomers, LGBT groups, religion and researchers and scholars.


Among the fastest growing niche networks are those created by and on behalf of businesses. This presentation will provide an overview of the variety of niche online networks, with a focus on those created to better connect and engage customers, employees, and professionals.
