From the article.

There are now a lot of choices about where and how we direct our social networking energy. Up till recently I have taken a “balanced” approach and attempted to have a regular (preferably daily) presence in around 8 main places.

I have taken some time to ponder and examining who of my friends are succeeding the most and why. I am seeing a trend towards gaining greater influence and attraction by focusing on a special place and building a supportive and responsive community there.

The 8 main places I am talking about are You Tube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linked In, Google Plus and “the bloggosphere”. Blogging and commenting on and sharing others blogs.

I know that there are others of you who are dominating such places as Tumblr, Reddit, Stumble Upon, Flickr and more.
