Social Networking - What's the point?

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

license plateInspired by John Lockwood I started a social network. Just like that, spur of the moment.  My new social network is called "The Maureen Corps." The 'Maureen Corps' is on Ning.com  Ning.com  is part of OpenSocial. I blogged about OpenSocial over the weekend, find it if you care about what OpenSocial is about.

John Lockwood  wrote about Ning.com and getting your own social network. I clicked on the link in John's entry about Ning.com never thinking I would create a social network.  It must have been an impulse kind of thing.. as I recall that's kind of how I stumbled into ActiveRain (a social network) too... Following John Lockwood's inspiration in his post where he admitted setting up two social networks.  John wrote:

"And in the true spirit of Web 2.0, I have decided that if I can, of course that means I should, so I am now the proud owner of not just one, but TWO social networks, with me as the one member each!"

I stopped with one for now. Following John's reasoning  'The Maureen Corps'  is sort of like MySpace except all the members will be named Maureen. We're not going to let every Tom, Dick and Harry join, for Pete's sake!   

Visit The Maureen Corps   More blogging?  Is Social Networking just a polite way to suck you into blogging?  I know I joined ActiveRain not knowing it was just more blogging. 

My first blog on ActiveRain  My first and only blog entry on The Maureen Corps is similar. Duh!

Probably finding Maureen Gorman's Maureen.com (I'm having trouble with this link http://www.maureen.com !!) with Cafe Press Products was part of what started me in motion toward The Maureen Corps.

Maureen Francis, Maureen Staccato and Maureen Henry.... you are more than welcome to join 'The Maureen Corps.'  Other ActiveRain Maureen's include: Graziano, Kurowski, Kerr, Megowan, Kennedy, Thorpe, Houston, Kelly, Reddy, McPartlan, Wright, Clark, Haney .... There's a zillion (maybe that's an exageration...) more Maureen's on ActiveRain who have set up a profile but have very few points, may not be active on ActiveRain, but they are all welcome as members on The Maureen Corps...  there are NO points on The Maureen Corps. 

I announced The Maureen Corps on ColumbusBestBlog, my other blog  first. 

Darn I have someone who wants to be a member...

What do I do now?  I think Art B. ought to start an Art Gallery.  I can see some real commercial implications for that social network.

That's funny. I wonder if there is a Maureen Corps on Facebook and I just did not know... Maura how do you say your name? It is mine but I want to share it with Maureens everywhere...

I say it like "More-ah" (not "Mahr-ah). So I usually explain that it's like Laura with an "m", except that I recently met a Laura who pronounces it "Lahr-ah."

I checked really quickly in Facebook - no Maureen Corps that I can see! =)

I had a hair stylist years ago who pronounced it  "Moy-Rah"  My niece is "More-ah" 

My neighbors growing up pronounced my name "Marine."  Birthday Party invites were addressed to Marine.  Some people do pronounce it that way today, some people in my office do..  I probably shouldn't joke about  "The Maureen Corps."  My father and at least one of my sister's used to say "Mreen."  I know I wondered about how it was suppposed to be pronounced as a kid.

I should start a Maureen Corp on Facebook... nah...
