I have written a few entries on the increased use of Social Networks in the IT and the Recruitment Industry. It seems there are new sites created weekly and the lines can get blurred between which sites provide what services.

I think gives a nice summary of the some of the sites out there and what forum they provide for sharing information, ideas and conversations.
I use many of the sites listed below for different reasons whether its for research, finding great candidates, telling people about Oracle, etc….
I do think there are so many sites available you could spend more hours than there are in a day on them, so you need to work out what message you are trying to broadcast and what audience you are trying to reach to make sites like these really add value to your business.
