You might also like this category on my site:
We're getting ready to launch a major resource section there with profiles of all the major sites -- more in-depth than anything anyone else has.

Actually, no... Ecademy launched in 1998 and Ryze in October 2001. Friendster was a late-comer... March 2003. They just got more media attention sooner.

Still the largest and friendliest that maintains a professional, business focus.

Dozens. Maybe hundreds.

But it's been inexplicably quiet lately. Maybe you can go spark some conversation there.
BTW, on the topic of the new Google social network... did anyone here actually try to sign up? You can't -- you have to be invited by an existing member. That's a first. Talk about exclusivity! The irony is, I'll probably go use my other networks to see who I know at Google that might already be a member! Either that, or figure out how many degrees away I am from Orkut (the developer at Google who made the site).
