No to all - don't even have accounts with them.

Love LibraryThing, haven't actually heard of many of the others.

I add people to my LinkedIn account and get added to others' periodically, but I haven't ever used it for anything...

I was beginning to think I would have to claim an Old Sod identity after finding none on that list, but then, you use them and are older than me! (whew!)

You need a none-of-the-above button. I don't know whether to feel shifty at knowing so little of the wonders of the interweb or smug that I have a life. (I'd be a lot smugger if I actually did have a life.)

I should have added a Livejournal button!

I'm another none-of-the-above (aside from an unused Orkut account), and feel cheated that I'm not contributing to the denominator in those percentages.

You're one of two people with an unused Orkut account. From the outside it looks rather intriguing; is it in fact useless, or have you just not been inclined to try and exploit it?

I may have to re-vote - as of half an hour ago I have a MySpace account (oh, the shame!) because email arrived from three different friends all saying they've now got pages there! So I've staked a claim to a decent screen name and stuck in some placeholding text, and I may actually use it. Who knows.

I use Linked In and (once upon a time) Ryze. You left off ecademy too.

I am happy to use LinkedIn to connect to people I know in case anyone reading this wants to.

I ticked "Ryze" but my ryze account may be classed as "dormant" in case you are worried about accuracy in the poll.

I use librarything for fun (although I'm *way* behind on entering all my books) and have a linkedin account "just in case" (but I don't count linkedin as social, I count it as career-related).

You're quite right, of course; LinkedIn is definitely a career-related site. I should exploit it a bit more.

See no need for any of them; virtually all my RL friends are on LiveJournal (including everyone in the house I'm likely moving to in a few months and all their respective partners.

MySpace annoys me, and I know no one on any of the others except facebook, which, well, I can't be bothered to try.

I submitted my poll -- but I don't use any of them :-)

I have dormant accounts with Facebook, Friendster, LinkedIn, MySpace, Orkut, Tribe and Xanga. My Facebook account gets the most people-friending-me traffic and my MySpace account has done the most for reconnecting me with old friends (from secondary school).

Hah, tracked you down via LinkedIn.

You're one of two people with an unused Orkut account. From the outside it looks rather intriguing; is it in fact useless, or have you just not been inclined to try and exploit it?

I will admit to having MySpace and Bebo accounts, mainly for research purposes. Personally I consider them both to be rather sloppily put together, and I'm amazed that people put up with them at all. I haven't met anyone I know on Bebo, but that may be because I refuse to send out their spam for them.

"research"? What kind of research???

None of the above, I'm afraid. I do have a LibraryThing account that I can't be bothered to update and I think I have a Friendster account and a Yahoo 360 account that I never really went any further with. I do use del.icio.us quite a bit though, if you're interested in other social networks.
