The idea of starting this poll came to me as i got to know couple of tricks about Orkut and FB from my friends (who are not on T-BHP) and thought this would be a nice thread for forum users to know/share/find out things they knew/did not know about these site.

I can assure you guys that this poll thread is totally not commercial and non-project based.
Well, my question was not to check whether this was commercial or not and I never asked if you worked for MS. What I was telling is that some guys in my office have a similar project for their Master of Science (MS) project and was wondering if you were anybody among them.

I joined Orkut in 2005, before it was a google owned site. I have met quite a few old classmates thru it and also own my old school's community. Am not too active though.

The other site I am on is linkedin, again not too active.

The only place I can be found on, almost 24*7 is Tbhp.

How about a twitter account for team-bhp? few of the moderators can post the updates on twitter and who ever interested can follow that.

I use many networking websites (business & social) mainly as a business function than a virtual meet. My votes below:

Best for business purpose: LinkedIn & Facebook
Best and simpler for social meeting: Orkut
Best to know about "what's happening": Twitter

Also, my IDs for the respective websites:
