I took a look at the powerpoint.  That really was a lot of work.  I 
appreciate the link.  I also appreciate both positive and negative 
feedback from all who responded so far.  I missed craigslist.org; 
although not originally designed as a social media site, for other 
reasons, I should have put it on the list.  reddit was on my original 
list, but failed in the transfer to my email.

What is the craze about Flickr?  Is it because it's a super facilitator 
or other?
