Ello : a social network
https://ello.co/
Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers.
We originally built Ello as a private social network. Over time, so many people wanted to join Ello that we built a public version of Ello for everyone to use.
Ello is completely free to use.
We occasionally offer special features to our users. If we create a special feature that you really like, you may choose to support Ello by paying a very small amount of money to add that feature to your Ello account.
You never have to pay anything, and you can keep using Ello forever, for free. By choosing to buy a feature now and then for a very small amount of money you support our work and help us make Ello better and better.

Teens, Kindness and Cruelty on Social Network Sites
Pew Report : These findings and others about teens' behavior and experiences on social network sites are based on seven focus groups with teens and a nationally representative survey of youth ages 12-17 and their parents.
As social media use has become pervasive in the lives of American teens, a new study finds that 69% of the teenagers who use social networking sites say their peers are mostly kind to one another on such sites. Still, 88% of these teens say they have witnessed people being mean and cruel to another person on the sites, and 15% report that they have been the target of mean or cruel behavior on social network sites.

Best Practices in Social Networking for Educators
At ASCD 2011, we got the opportunity to sit down and talk with Eric Sheninger. In a previous blog post, he talked about ways you could get started with Twitter. We spoke with Eric about how he was able to change – from a principal that banned social media in his school to a principal that his students call ‘Mr. Twitter.’

Everloop
http://www.everloop.com/
Built for tweens, Everloop is the next step beyond social networking, to what we call social looping.
Tweens really shouldn't be on open, social networks. Everloop's "social looping" platform - the first of its kind -- creates a privacy loop around kids' connections. It's totally free.
And kids are free from anonymous intruders. They can participate in collaborative learning and school projects, share information about their sports teams and clubs, play games, customize their profile pages, and communicate in real time with friends they know who are part of their loop.
As kids interests grow, their loops can intersect with other loops – but never without the knowledge of their parents, who have their own console login and can monitor behavior at whatever level they decide is appropriate for their children.
They are always informed before a child tries to expand his or her loop, and they are always in control.

Diaspora aims to be a distributed network, where totally separate computers connect to each other directly, will let us connect without surrendering our privacy. We call these computers ‘seeds’. A seed is owned by you, hosted by you, or on a rented server. Once it has been set up, the seed will aggregate all of your information: your facebook profile, tweets, anything. We are designing an easily extendable plugin framework for Diaspora, so that whenever newfangled content gets invented, it will be automagically integrated into every seed.

Social Networking More Important Than Family
http://library.teachingtimes.com/articles/family-time-survey_010610.htm
Social Networking More Important Than Family
Many of the children in the UK found technology and social networking more important than other aspects of life, including their family, according to a new poll of eight to 15-year-olds for National Family Week.
It found 40% of girls identified Facebook as one of the most important things in their lives - compared with 6% of boys. The study, which surveyed 3,000 parents and 1,000 children across the UK, reveals parents overestimate the role they play in their child's life.

Social Technographics
Social Technographics, a way to analyze your market's social technology behavior. Social Technographics was carefully constructed, not as a segmentation, but as a profile (that is, the groups overlap).
That's because the actual data told me that people participate in multiple behaviors, and not everyone at a higher level on the ladder actually does everything in the lower rungs.
We use the metaphor of a ladder ...

Spreadsheeted Comparison of Ning Alternatives
"Grou.ps hands down wins this battle and is a serious contender that could rival Ning even if Ning kept it's free accounts.
Spruz and SocialGo are good alternatives for small groups that do not need to share files. For discussion Spruz and SocialGo are probably the best alternatives in this group.
Mixxt was also a good alternative but the administrative interface is not as nice as Grou.ps nor were their templates very visually appealing."
