Social Networks

So what is the difference between all of these Social Networks: 

Edmodo: Edmodo is more like a social network similar to Facebook. It allows for sharing of notes, links and documents in a feed like environment. It is not necessarily used for organizing content, but more for social sharing and discussing.

Twitter: A way to share 140 Character thoughts, ideas, links, pictures etc.

Moodle/ PowerCourse: This is actually not a social network but a learning management system. A learning management system is a way to organize content for learning and teaching. It allows for interaction between students and teacher and students. Also in a learning management system students can interact with content such as videos, quizzes, interactive lessons etc.

Google +: A social place to share info and links, much like Facebook. It also allows people meet and chat and videoconference.

Pinterest: A social environment for following and sharing photos that you have pinned to your board. 

Not Really Social Networks but Available Collaborative Tools: 
 Voicethread: A way of sharing a conversation about a picture an audio thread, or a video. It is more for creating and collaborating using MultiMedia.

Google Docs: a social environment for sharing and collaborating on documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
