    Well you may have read that in the past days Facebook reached the milestone of 650 million users worldwide.

    Why is it that social networks are becoming that successful?

    Social Networks? There is just Twitter & Facebook that got so big AFAIK. The reason is that they provide visitors with what they want: staying updated, easy to contact people, play games for enjoyment, find new contacts etc.

    That's probably the biggest reason social networks get that successful.

    Someone had the right idea at the right time in history. Both are easy to create an account, connect with friends, and share photos/video... so it appeals to most of society.

    One of the useful of facebook is you can find back your old friends and family as well as looking at new friends who might became your business partner.

    Facebook reflects the true personality of you. However, too personal also not really good. To some, they prefer to have a little confidential. E.g. You might not want your family to watch you playing game or internet online 7/24 a day.

    Nevertheless, Facebook can improve on this if they could allow other social networks link direct to Facebook Fanpage. What I mean here is not the one link direct to your major profile but just the Fanpage.

    That's would be great!

    Facebook and Twitter become successful because they are user-friendly and they satisfy the needs and wants of most people for online communication.

    They're successful because people can connect quickly and easily with people they know (or don't know). However, they aren't successful as a group - it takes an awfully high critical mass (or a very specific niche) for a new social network to be successful in the market.

    Social networks are successful because people by nature love to socialize.

    These networks keep people connected. People can share feelings, be entertained, gain new friends, find old friends, and the new trend, doing business using these social media networks.

    Its a matter of "staying connected" with each other.

    Social network sites like facebook and twitter become successful in their field because of the features that they provide and offer to the users. And just others are saying, they give the users what they want like games and other interaction features of the social networks.

    Social networking are successful because when people thinks of a social networking they'll be having a mind set that lots of people are hanging out in that site because it's a social networking lots of people are hanging-out. Some sites vary depending on groups of people they caters like a social networking for Emo, Anime Fan, Geeks, Drama, etc..
