List Rules The most useful social networks for students and professionals who live abroad

Top expats social networks on the Web, including niche social communities as well as those organized by language, nationality or specialty interest.

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.
