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.

This list gathers together major players in the creative social networking field, from the most visible, such as DeviantArt, to vibrant and active communities of artists on a smaller scale. It is an open list, so if you have a favorite artist or photographer themed social network that isn't featured, enter it below to make sure it's included on the list.
