Article incorrectly portrays sites as "active"[edit]

The article says this is a list of "active" social networking sites.

A random 3 are in fact not active: bebo,, Some of those have been closed for many years.

I suggest the dead ones be removed or the characterization of the list as "active" be amended. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:08, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Edit Request: Facebook & Google+ Citation(s) and Statistics[edit]

The Facebook # of registered users comes from citation 83. The Google+ # of registered uses comes from citation 133. They are the same website:

Furthermore, according to that website, the number of registered Google+ users is correctly cited on the wiki-page as 1.6 billion. The number of registered Facebook users according to citation is unknown, and this wiki-page instead shows the number of Facebook active monthly users, which is more than twice the number of active monthly users of Google+ listed in the citation.

Either two columns should be made of Total Registered Users and Regular/Monthly Users, or the number of Facebook Registered Users should be changed to unknown.

Why aren't Quora and Coursera included?[edit]

Does Wikipedia adhere to any definition of how a social networking website is supposed to be structured?

Coursera is a website for online education, but it fosters social interaction as well. Alexa rank : 1947; Users : 7.1 million; Launched in : 2012

Even on Quora, we follow other members, make our profiles and give answers to various questions. Alexa rank : 276; Launched in : 2009

I think both of these should be included. Any comments?

This is my first comment on a talk page, so please convey if I have not done it according to the rules. Thanks!

We haven't added them to this page because of two reasons. 1. No one has ever asked for them to be added here. 2. The articles do not verify that they are social networking sites. The article Coursera does not identify it as a Social Networking site at all. The article Quora has been placed in a category that identifies it as a socila network, but there is nothing in the prose that describes it that way. Both articles would need to be worked on before it would be appropriate to add them here. GB fan 10:52, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done As it clearly states at the top of both the Article edit page and the Talk page edit page " Sites will only be added if they have a Wikipedia article" - No article = no inclusion
