Why isin't Usenet included in this list?[edit]

It's a total crock that usenet is not included in this list. Usenet was the original "social network" on the internet, and it continues to be the only communications mechanism and method for allowing people to aggregate in "societies" and communicate with each other without corporate or government influence or censorship. Usenet is the only social network that can garantee anonymity for those that seek it.

For this wikipedia list of social networks to have even a shred of credibility, authority and completeness, Usenet must be included. The fact that this is a list of "websites" is irrelavent, because the vast majority of people do not experience any of these social networks via web-browser. This list needs to be renamed as a list of internet-based social networks, and Usenet must be added and mentioned as the original internet social network. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:20, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

  • While I agree with you that Usenet should probably be included, please note that making statements like "total crock", "needs to be" and "must be" is not the usual, and a rarely effective, means of developing consensus on Wikipedia, which is one of the core principles by which this site works.

  • The list is social networking websites. Usenet is not a website. --— Rhododendrites talk \\ 14:26, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

It was already pointed out in this section that catagorizing social networks that exist on or are reachable through the internet in terms of whether those networks exist as websites is questionable or serves no purpose other than to exclude obvious examples of social networks such as usenet. I suggest that some action be taken to remove the unnecessary critea of "website" be removed from this article and the article be renamed as a "List of Internet-based Social Networks", and usenet be included as the defacto original internet social network. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:05, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Social Network to be added[edit]

Can somebody add to this list of social networking sites? thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Johnpalmerjp3 (talkcontribs) 01:16, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Johnpalmerjp3 is there a Wikipedia article for this social network? Quickly looking I do not see one. The consensus here is that we only add entries after an article has been created. -- GB fan 01:28, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
