Q.  What is the point of these "social networking" sites?

A.  Mutual Blogging.

I think the best part is... it's a blog that people actually read. When I
post stuff on my Facebook profile it is read by nearly all of my
(Facebook) Friends.  They sometimes comment - that is great.

When I had a blog before it seemed that nobody read it. Of course, the
downside is that I have to read their posts too :)

Its this mutual blogging that's the best for me.

I am sure it could be done with RSS and FOAF. I would love to get out of
Facebook's walled garden.
