I'm pleased to announce that a corrected/revised/expanded version of
my pre-conference  workshop presentation for _Internet Librarian_ 2008
is now available

_Not Just  Facebook: Online Social Networks For Libraries_


While Bebo, Facebook, hi5, MySpace, and Orkut are among the
better-known general online social networks, there is 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 (e.g., EduSpaces), people
of color  (e.g., Black Planet), Boomers (e.g., Boomj), business (e.g.,
Linked-In), LGBT groups (e.g., OUTeverywhere), religion (e.g.,
MyChurch), and researchers and scholars (e.g., Nature Network).

This workshop provides an overview of the more significant niche
online social networks,  reviews their common and unique features and
functionalities,  and considers the potential opportunities for wider
engaged library outreach to these communities.
