World of Warcraft Social Network

Mashable reports the launch of a World of Warcraft social network by Warcraft Social.

From the Warcraft Social site:

"Warcraft Social Network is beta launching! We hope you all will enjoy the site. It has been in the works for a while, and we are so excited to finally see it materialize. Thanks everyone for your support. Please join so we can expand our community and features. We will be making tweaks, adding new features, and making everything more user-friendly as time goes on."

From Mashable:

"Looking beyond the Warcraft theming, it’s a fairly standard MySpace or Friendster clone, with profile pages, messaging and comments. There are a few Warcraft-specific features, however: you can add your character name, race, class, profession, realm and guild, and find members of the same guild or realm.

The bigger question, of course, is whether virtual worlds need social networks - aren’t they social enough already? It’s tempting to say that Warcraft users might not be crazy about MySpace-style sites, but that doesn’t appear to be the case: WoW’s MySpace page has over 100,000 friends and some excellent tools to customize your profile. There are also plenty of popular forums related to MMOGs, so there’s an outside chance a social network could work."
