Wouldn't it be great if there was a place that gathers people of similar interests and goals from all corners of the world? Oh, wait... :)

According to the We Are Social report, with the population of 7 billion and 3 billion active internet users, every third person on Earth is online.

At the moment, there are 210 (yes, I counted!) social networks that are popular and big enough for Wikipedia to list them. These networks gather people with similar lifestyles, interests, and goals in one (virtual) place for your convenience. You can start with the most obvious ones: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others but do not forget the smaller niche ones.

"A niche is a specialized subset of a larger set, so a niche social network is one that targets a select segment of the general population." Debra Ronca for HowStuffWorks
