List Rules Websites that connect people with environmentally-conscious views of the world

Top green social networks on the Web, including niche environmental and activist online communities as well as those organized by language, nationality or specialty interest. This list contains social networks and online communities relating specifically to green living, protecting the Earth, non-profit organization and mobilization, and discussing the impact of climate change.

A social network is defined as an online service, platform or website which is focused largely around uniting individuals and allowing them to communicate and interact. Facebook currently is the world's largest and most popular social networking platform, having supplanted previous champions such as MySpace and Friendster. Though a lot of 'green' discussions happen on every social network - and whole communities dedicated to the subject have sprung up on YouTube, Facebook and elsewhere - a number of sites specifically cater to individuals wanting to discuss environmental activism online.

This list gathers together major players in the green social networking field. It is an open list, so if you have a favorite Earth-conscious social network that isn't featured, enter it below to make sure it's included on the list.
