Fun with old and new friends: Zoosk wants to be known as the singles hotspot on the social network.

Another well-known virtual destination that allows for meeting new friends from around the world is Friend.ly; 452,704 users helped it claim a spot on the list for another week in a row.
Social networkers seem to show no signs slowing down the questioning of one another.
