Social networking - how many of these do you know?

Upon finding a very interesting article about storytelling - about which I'll post shortly - I was also fascinated by the list it supplied of ways in which to share this via social networking.  Myself, being neither whizz nor Luddite, but somewhere on the continuum in between, I expected to recognise some - but there were certainly a number new to me.  I posted about the list on Barack Obama's website a couple of weeks ago: well, here's another list to test you (from the choices provided by Scientific American):

  • Facebook
  • Technorati
  • Yahoo Bookmarks
  • MySpace
  • Google Bookmarks
  • Newsvine
  • Mixx
  • Yahoo! My Web
  • Propeller
  • FriendFeed
  • Windows Live
  • Reddit
  • Digg (32)
  • StumbleUpon
  • Xanga
  • Blinklist
  • Furl
  • ma.gnolia
  • Mister Wong
  • N4G
  • Blogmarks
  • Faves
  • Current
  • Simpy
  • Slashdot
  • Meneame
  • Yigg
  • Fresqui
  • Diigo
  • Care2
  • Funp
  • Kirtsy
  • Hugg
  • Sphinn

So, how many did you recognise?  And how many would our students recognise?

The fact that these are options offered by an established publication such as Scientific American also gives this list some authority as another snapshot of significant social networking sites.
