Where are the big history communities? How do these work? Of course,
everybody knows Linkedin and (national oriented) popular social sites.
But what about sites that serve a similar audience as Facebook? Say, a
history student from a Russian university: does this person also
register in Facebook? If not, where do they go?
If you have a tip, please leave a comment here or at
Facebook? Is that something like Wikipedia?
It's equally fictional, from what I hear.
Facebook is the latest blog-thing. Not quite a blog but you can enter
things about yourself (books you have read, films you have seen, your
holiday or wedding photos) and can send virtual drinks, food and other
things to other people with whom you have linked up on your facebook.
You can also join facebook communities which people make up, such as
(can't think of exact name) the lighthearted one which wants to rescind
America's independence from the Mother Country. You can even colour in a
world map with the countries and cities you have visited or lived in.
I know what Facebook is. I was just commenting on its usefulness as a
venue for the sort of thing the OP was asking about.
