Social Networks of Video Games and Gaming

Online social networking, groups, and web sites are interacting and reaching out with no geographical boundaries or limitations. The intersections and crossroads have united many who otherwise would never had met.

The numerous social networks that surround the Video Games and Gaming World are not only growing by leaps and bounds, but also attracting extremely loyal and tenacious fans. Mixing, melding, and forging the uber pwnage of video gamers and the interaction of a social networking togetherness you only get with an online cooperation formed into a web site.

Chat rooms and forums; in game chat and party groups; and guilds and clans design the social aspect of the online gaming industry. From the simplicity of the flash based games like Ogre Island, to the complex downloadable PC console games like World of Warcraft the online gaming world has come from a diverse beginning.

The earliest PC games of Solitaire, Backgammon, Pinball, and Hearts warped into a series of Doom style RPG’s. Most of this original game play was solitary. With the invention of Its Your Turn’s creative ingenuity, we began to take solitary turns together. One player at a time taking his or her play turn and sending email alerts to the other as the game progresses. Ultima Online was a major player in the MMORPG sector of social interaction in gaming. With the emergence of Blizzard Entertainment came the opportunity for gamers across the nation to connect and compete in mass PVP wars complete with a pre game chat feature. This feature allows you to socialize and chat with other players before actually entering game play to better know your opponents and allies.

Soon after came the outbreak of in game chat. While chat boxes early on were extremely basic only allowing simple text and minimal emote options, they have evolved into a major beast powering the gaming industries social connection and actually spawning new ideas for development. These new chat features include multiple chat channels and hundreds of emotes which are text commands that create sound and motions. Examples are: /hug, /wave, /dance and for you Age of Empires players /boo which will play an audible audience of “booers” dissing your opponent.

Game developers are increasing the time spent on statistics figuring out how to leverage and apply growth to social networks by introducing new and competitive games, creating a subset of gamers in the social networking arena of the Internet. Global reach has unlimited the geography factor by initializing influence to an audience if infinite proportion. While gamers have always been cloned into a bundle, class, or faction of their own, seemingly separate and disconnected from the masses involved in the online social networking movement, I say gamers are the force behind the socialization age of technology.

In your quest for virtual worlds, social networks, and online community interactions, keep your Eagle Eye Hunter ability activated and begin to notice the explosion that is online video games and gaming.

“In The News” Blogs and Social Networks

We wanted to venture into the realm of “In The News” Blogs and Social Networks. Actually a difficult subject to search on the net. What you get with searching for Blogs and Social Networks that contain “News” are which Blog platforms or Social Networks Are In The News πŸ™‚

Many Blogs and Social Networks that we came across were mostly “Second Hand News” but, in reality, if you aren’t On The Sceen reporting as it happens, all news is somewhat that πŸ™‚

fox

For the best in “Weather News”, we found Weather.Fox.com for all you land based weather junkies out there (like me :), If you are a boater, maybe not (this is NOAA :), but for land based dwellers who want to meet and greet other weather buffs, this is the place πŸ™‚ Upload photos, videos, create blogs, visit the forum, and make friends. Coolies to Fox for creating a Weather News Social Network where you can get your extended forecast, favorite blog posts, set a featured weather photo, get weather questions answered on Tropical Weather, Storm Chasing, Climate Change, Weather Around the World, Read Weather stories or post your own! Complete with a Meebo Chat! Getting News and views from Meteorologists, seasoned Weather Announcers, Bloggers, and Regular Joes πŸ™‚

A different “take” on a News site is AvatarsUnited.com πŸ™‚ A site for your Gaming Avatar (from the perspective of the Avatar, not your personal perspective πŸ™‚ so, if you want the skinny on what Avatars are doing in game, check it out πŸ™‚

usatoday

How about some sites for Real Headline News πŸ™‚ USA Todays Community Connecting Readers to Reporting (easy to set up a profile here and free), is a very fast site for both navigation and uploading photos or profile adjustments. Hop right over to the main USA Today page to comment on or recommend an article and one click away to the Blogs area! They make it easy to add favorites Blog Titles to your home page and widgets πŸ™‚ The most popular headline widget is nice! USA Today also offers a “Green News” widget for climate and weather headlines, both of which I put I placed on the front page of my new site for news InTheNews.Wetpaint.com, a place to “See” the Headline News at a glance using the very coolest of widgets, so you know which News is what you want to read πŸ™‚ If you need a dose of or want to scan the headlines, stop by πŸ™‚ Links to all the main In The News sites πŸ™‚

USA Today Community also offers free to use widgets for Finance, Celeb Watch with Will Keck, USA Today Sports Headlines, Politics, Pop Candy with Whitney Matheson for the latest News and Trends in Music, TV, Books, Video, Movies, Celebrity Interviews and finding the best sites. There’s Today in the Sky with Ben Mutzabaugh for airline news and Top Travel Stories, so, an incredible selection of In The News widgets for your Blogs and Social Networks at USA Today Community πŸ™‚ These widgets work with PageFlakes, iGoogle, Facebook, TypePad, NetVibe, Blogger, MySpace, and sites like InTheNews.wetpaint.com πŸ™‚

My main motivation for creating this blog style social network In The News viewing site was because it was so difficult to find social networks that were for people who wanted differing News stories from different broadcasters all in one glance πŸ™‚ I find it nice to have all the Headlines in one spot, then be able to click to view the stories I want to read more of. Spending time actually reading instead of searching πŸ™‚

While Mashable.com is not a social network (well, not yet anyway) the following for this blog is huge because people want to know the Technology News, Internet News, and ideas over at Mashable πŸ™‚

Internet.com is the network for Technology proffessionals with newsletters, products, and special offers is something for techies to see! Applications and Internet Development, Job Functions and Occupations, Information Technology, Linux News, E Commerce Guides, WeboPedia Daily, Database Journal, Server Watch, Hardware Central, Sharky Extreme, BlackBerry Today,Β  and Wifi Planet are just a few of the newsletters and special offers you have a choice of when you sign up with Internet.com.

For an intense listing of Sports Social Networks check out JasonFPeck.com, he has quite the list of Sports Social Networks and seems to know much more about Sports than Stevie and I πŸ™‚ Sports Social Media at Take A Peck! Great site Jason πŸ™‚

Another awesome News for Gamers Based Social Network (especially for Spore lovers) is SporeIllustrated.wetpaint.com πŸ™‚
