What is the purpose of the site? What if you updated the friends section to make it more powerful and adaptive with social networking on-line features? To make another site is simply another site, that one has to use with no real purpose.

We'll pass along the suggestions. Being able to integrate more closely on the actual site sounds great.

The other profiles are for those that have an online presence elsewhere and would like to opt-in to receive information about eNotes updates. Not exactly another site as we just have profiles on Facebook and Twitter, but we want to make it as easy as possible for people to connect with our team over here.

Will definitely look at the social networking functionality on site though!

Hi Epollock, do you mean what is the purpose of our twitter/facebook pages?

Thanks guys for making these links - I really want to get into twitter but will definitely use Facebook and add myself as a fan! It would be interesting to find out how many editors on enotes use facebook and other networking sites and sites such as Twitter. Any ideas?

I was never a Facebook fan until I moved a thousand miles away from virtually everyone I know.  I still have reservations, but I'm thankful for this way to keep in touch so quickly and visually.

I'm always reminding students, in particular, that the 2,536 "friends" they have on Facebook are not all really friends.  Even most of my nearly 200 friends are really just people with whom I am friendly.  But, it's useful and I'll continue to use it.

Twitter, on the other hand, seems outrageously self-centered. I see comments every day on Facebook from people telling everyone they're "headin' to the bank" or "hungry for chips and salsa."  While I like you, I generally don't care. Twitter, it seems, takes this even further and encourages a person to share just those kind of sentiments and urges about everything all the time.  Doesn't get more arrogant than that, it seems to me--assuming your every thought is worthy of speaking out loud for others to "like" or comment with regularity. It's just so easy to "blurt" on Twitter, and I need as much help with self-control as I can; thus, I shall avoid it.

I'm even hesitant to add groups or companies or organizations as friends on my Facebook account; however, for a select few things I believe in, I'm willing to connect.  I'll be adding e-notes as soon as I click on the "submit" button.

I do think it would be interesting if we were able to incorporate Facebook and enotes better.  For example, we could post questions on Facebook, or track the number of points.  There are so many games on Facebook that tell us when someone does something, so why not add enotes?
