    Im suprised the figures arent higher? I bet if you used it as a percentage of all users with internet access, rather than all americans it would be quite a bit higher. I think that 3D worlds like the Xbox Live Avatar system will be the next big “social” networking.

    Twitter is now 5 years old. As a social networking site with a limit 140 characters for every tweet, they have surpassed all the ridicule of many. Does the Marist Poll include data from Twitter?
