Linked In, Facebook, MySpace--online social networks are changing more than the Internet. Whether we're ready or not, they're changing politics, civics and the way lives are lived. Wednesday morning at 9, we'll explain online social networking, and we'll talk about why some people are so attracted to exposing every facet of their lives online and how these networks are changing everything from dating to running for president.
