Social Networking Websites
A Social Networking website is one that offers customers assistance with meeting and communicating with other customers or members of the same website. Customers of a Social Networking website are typically able to create a free member account that allows the customer to sample the website's services. Exclusive website social functions only become available after a customer agrees to pay for services. Social Networking websites typically offer customers both single and recurring billing options and customers typically agree to be billed at regular intervals to maintain services from the website.
