Q.

Will some real clever person explain to me what this Jhoos and Twitter is all about? Are they like Orkut and Facebook? ( I get friendship requests from these sites and I don't wish to accept.) )

Well Twitter is yet another of those social networking and blogging sites. As for Jhoos I expect it is the same. I too am receiving lots of invites from people I have never heard of asking me to join - no doubt they have sourced my email address from all those forwards we had re. Rediff a few weeks ago. I just send them to the Blocked Senders List including the Domain. There are only 24 hours in the day how people can live, work and spend time on these sites is a mystery to me !!

Its no brains but social pains to get hooked onto these social networking sites. I guess ya have a handful in QnA so dont think of gossiping on twitter or jhoos.

Well joyoti I cannot throw any light because I am not clever as that is your condition to answer this question but need to say however that I simply cannot understand why anyone would want to be in so many social sites and I too get countless invitations which I just ignore.

I have seen Jhoos though more than a year back.I am also getting requests from friends to join these and many other sites but I find it difficult to join all these sites and also feel there is no use since i am already friends with these people as i know their mail id or their Facebook profile.What is the requirement to join anothe or many other sites for just making friends who are already our friends?

Both are social networking sites. I happen to visit Jhoos today after I have been receiving a couple of invites.

Jhoos - straight copy & paste from their website:
