Julio Resendez The revolution of business and social networking Some of us don’t like to admit it.

Sites such as EBay and Amazon have been making good money as the sites that let you shop without ever leaving your house. This revolutionary idea stood above the classic catalog and telephone way of shopping. You no longer had to talk to annoying sales people, stay on hold, or even give out your credit card information without a sense of security. The day of going paperless had finally been accepted by the majority of the public. But aside from shopping sites and search engines, we needed something else. Well, we didn’t actually need anything else until Myspace came out. Which made some of us realize that maybe we had a problem, and that we were addicted to this online social monstrosity.
