Online social networking has been around for a long time now but has yet to really take off in the UK. However, a couple of programs released this week may change all that.
There has been a lot of hype (or should that be talk) this week surrounding google talk, the new VOIP service from google that allows users to instant message and talk over the web using their gmail accounts.
The second is imeem. This is based around the concept of a meme (ideas that communities adopt and express). imeem allows users to create their own open or closed social networks including blogs, photos and instant messaging.
