submitter: Social Networking now topping porn as #1 web attraction

That's because social networks have pictures of partially clothed girls on them.

\This better turn into a jailbait thread.

Interesting... how about a social networking site with nothing but porn. I will call it: Snorn.

Probably because with social networking you can find 14- to 22-year-old women who are willing to strip on webcam for you, if not meet you someplace for sex.

Dateline NBC's Chris Hansen is about 5 seconds away from asking all of Fark to have a seat over there.

People have discovered that social networking gets you laid a lot more often than porn sites.
 
2008-09-16 11:34:26 AM  
is PornBook.com taken?
 
2008-09-16 12:00:28 PM  
Don't you mean addiction and not attraction?

So glad social networking apps are blocked at work. I'd never get anything done.

Isn't adult friend finder.com a social porn site?
 
2008-09-16 01:10:13 PM  
Anybody here know what porn might look like?
 
2008-09-16 01:10:31 PM  
LIES!

Well if by "social" you mean alone due to fake profiles then yes.

What about "MyFace"? As in: "I can't wait for her get onto MyFace".

Unlikely indeed, you farking perverts.

make me some tea: People have discovered that social networking gets you laid a lot more often than porn sites.

In the sense that jumping off a ladder gets you to the moon a lot more often than jumping from the floor.
 
2008-09-16 01:12:24 PM  
Because:
Stalking the local teens > amateur porn > stalking your exes > real porn
 
2008-09-16 01:12:29 PM  
People spend more time on social networking sites because they only need to visit the porn sites for 2 or 3 minutes.
 
2008-09-16 01:12:32 PM  
Does sharing P2P porn count as social networking?
 
2008-09-16 01:12:33 PM  
MasterThief: Interesting... how about a social networking site with nothing but porn.

It's been done. There are more than a few out there, I'm sure.

But less likely to end up cut up and stuffed into a trashcan?

Manta537: is PornBook.com taken?

I like your style. Here's 50 grand. Let's start a business.

Now if only we can incorporate stock quotes, there'd be no reason to go anywhere else on the internet. Maybe PornBookFinancial.com?

miscreant: People spend more time on social networking sites because they only need to visit the porn sites for 2 or 3 minutes.

Clearly, you are doing it wrong
 
2008-09-16 01:13:04 PM  
This kind of surprises me. Maybe for you middle-aged folks, and maybe 14-year-olds will always want some kind of outlet to express themselves far more than most people care to hear about. None of these companies are turning profit, everyone's myspace is private, the only people still using facebook are addicted to apps and it's becoming increasingly an uneducated sphere (not that many of the college kids who used it were ever particularly intellectuals). I get a text message when something happens on facebook and I only go on myspace anymore because of forums where copious amounts of piracy occur.

To steal a line from dilbert, make sure the invoice is for "printer paper" so you can have your company pay for it.

Has anyone here actually tried that site, I mean does it work? Maybe I will join up, for reasearch purposes...

I can't view porn at work, but I'm on THEFACE pretty much constantly. My co-workers and I have an email chain where we send each other pictures of friends that typically turn into a photoshop contests.

/Your tax dollars at work :)

Facialbook?

2008-09-16 01:15:47 PM  
OK, who isn't at work and can GIS "topping porn" for us?

Anyone want to place bets on whether it's more sundae-related or pizza-related? Odds?

I said "people"... not me. I don't need porn, I've got a girlfriend who's awesome! :p

/she's Canadian

I wonder what's if anyone's thinking about me right now...

*Checks Facebook*...

Nope, not here.

*Checks Friendster*...

still, no one? Please let me have a new message... it's been 25 minutes...

*Checks Myspace*...

Yes! That random girl I told was hot has replied in the form of a public comment. This is perfect! Now people will be able to see that I have friends, friends that leave me messages. I'm not desperately lonely...

Cos everyone needs to see these messages.

Facialbook, MyPlace, hmm.

We really need to upgrade the quality of internet porn if that is the case.
 
2008-09-16 01:18:13 PM  
No jailbait posts? For shame.

I am really tired of being banned for posting them.

The reason why 'social networking' is popular right now is because of the shiatty changes Facebook has enforced on *all* its users... trust me, there are approx 3 MILLION people on facebook who are wanting blood right now... choice had nothing to do with anything, enforcement of something highly unpopular and buggy is bringing people out in numbers...

I just find it all... fascinating...

/touch my facebook acct with that 'new' shiat if you DARE...
//there is no opt out to the old familiar facebook if you're changed...
///there are a few ways one can get back to that familiarity - if you join one of the 'anti new facebook groups'

Ok.. back to social networking baying for blood...

How about investinporn.com? You have the ladies 18+ upload their photos/videos to your website. Their 'new' friend (at $19.99 a month) vote for a new starlette. Movies are made, distributed. Friends get a discount and can pitch ideas. The starlette gets a few dollars and profit all around for idea guys.

Now about that 50 grand. Harry needs some cash. Some guys want to break his legs. Harry likes his legs.

According to 'data geek', Bill Tancer, top boffin at Internet tracking company Hitwise, people are no longer coming to the net in search of adult stimulation.

In fact, searches for porn have shriveled to only 10 per cent, going down from 20 per cent ten years ago.


No dude, it just means your top tracking company isn't tracking the right stuff any more. Stating the fricking obvious an' all.

I hear that they have the internet on computers now.
