Which social networking sites are the most social? comScore ranks them

Where should you hang out? Here is where the popular kids hang out.

Getting lonely on your MySpace page? That's because the growth is happening elsewhere, as TechCrunch reports. Digg? Growing at a 280% clip, year over year. Facebook? 118%. LinkedIn? 257%. MySpace is only at a 28% growth rate, and that's because they decided to let the 29,000 sex offenders back on. (No, I'm kidding!)

I admit that I still don't know what I'm supposed to do with Facebook, but LinkedIn and Digg are integral parts of my work each day (well, Digg is part of my blog "work").

Oh, and Windows Live Spaces? Up 4% because Ballmer finally got around to signing up.
