Social networks more popular than e-mail?

A Nielson Online report released last week found social networks and blogs are the fourth most popular online products, used by two-thirds of the online community. Trailing social networks was e-mail, which came in fifth.

Sharon Gaudin covered the study in this ComputerWorld article. But one look at the comments and it appears the public isn't buying these findings. I don't think social networking is as big as these numbers make it out to be, either.

As you can read in my comment, I believe social networks, while growing in popularity, aren’t going to replace e-mail anytime soon. What they will do, however, is complement it as part of our communication ecosystem. For more explanation, click over to my thoughts on the article.
