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. I also find that the social rings die off too. Many groups just start up and then there's no more activity. I'm on Twitter a lot. I get lots of info there.
I use Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin the most. You can also find me on Mixx, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Plaxo, flickr, Brightkite, Yahoo! Groups and Cafemom. There's a lot more that I've joined but haven't kept up. I experiment a lot. Some for work and some for personal.
I did find a great tool at hellotxt.com which lets you update your status on multiple networks at once.

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...

New-moms experience a shift in focus from the self to the baby. This is understandable although it may make new moms neglect their own health and fitness which may lead to postpartum depression, low self-esteem and even resentment.
