Social Software

I just read an article on Social Software that was link in a previous posting.

I am very new to social software. I have only been using USENET/Forms for 8 months.  This article has been a real eye opener to how things work when it comes to social software.

Of real interest to me is the scale aspect.  How dose one create a large scale group, without the affects of large scale. So I’m off to see how LiveJournal  works, and then I will try and wrap my brain around this one.

Yeah, whatever you say about livejournal it does seem to scale very well as a community. The 'friends page' is one of their best ideas I think.
