How many social networking/media sites do you belong too - Why?

Curious as to how many social networking/media sites do you belong too and Why.  I know my journey began as part of educational and business research, finding that over a number of years I ended up being a member of over 60 sites (none of them dating ones by the way).  Totally unmanageable and as time has gone on I have begun to cull many, also lost passwords have forced me to ignore some.

I am now using only a few sites to keep myself up to date and those which seem to have a practical purpose, yes facebook, twitter, myspace but this less and less, linkden and am now testing branch out.  Of course blogs and my own website are not going anywhere.  

It has been a long journey and as more cloud computing comes into play that is certainly in the mix.

Love to hear about others journeys and what and why you are using particular sites.

Branch Out

Branch out is a relatively new social networking site that appears to be in competition with Linkedin.  I am still not sure exactly how it works although I am puddling around with it.  What I am finding at this stage is that it is very similar to Linkedin so do I really need Branch out in my kit of tools.  I would love to hear from others about their experiences and their comparison of the two.
