I am on so many social networks it makes my head spin. Of course, I am on the MBC as well as Twitter, Plurk, LinkedIn, Facebook, FriendFeed, and tons of other Ning sites. I use Twitter more than anything for conversations and networking. I come to the MBC to meet awesome mom bloggers.
Which social networks are you on? Which one(s) do you use the most?
ROFL - I'm on all of them except for plurk. I haven't made it there yet. I'm on tons of stuff. It's hard to keep up with it all but I find that email notifications help a great deal.

It's quite the mess. So I added a page to my blog with links to my profiles: http://www.jedimom.net/about-2/
Sometimes I think I'm in too many too! But it's hard to figure out which works best for you and depends on your purpose as well...
