Jon – I agree this is desirable.  However, modern forums that are not promoted as social networking sites also offer that kind of interaction.  So maybe my question is not “what is social networking?” but “what kind of social networking do we want?”.

The email I sent to you yesterday shows that some people just want a mailing list.  Can that be accommodated within talkphysics.org?

Some might say it would undermine the purpose of talkphysics.org, but if that is what happens, then it says something about what people prefer.  Personally, I think there is room for both aspects. Sometimes I do just want to provide a quick reply, or get a message “out there”. Other times I want to be able to “network” or use some kind of richer medium like images or video etc…
