I am on both facebook (have 102 friends) and myspace (150 or so) and do promote my hubs... however, according to my hub stats top traffic sources, only 1 or 2 of my friends on either of those check my hubpages out.
I always take social bookmarking and social networking as 2 different way of promoting sites. Its good to have links from social bookmarking but it would hurt you rankings if SE's will find lots of links from that media. On the other hand, social networking sites are good enough to grab traffic. People who say that they are not getting traffic from there, they would be doing it wrong.
Hi pooja, I know Facebook and Twitter are considered social networking sites. But I feel Hubpages is also social and there are many other free websites which I use to earn revenue social too.

Submitting your work to social networking sites is not always about traffic. It's about the LINKS. Yes, I submit to social networking sites. The results? Almost all of my hubs can be found on the first page of Google for their keywords.
Social networking sites are great for backlinks. I have found the traffic depends on how involved you are on that site. I have 400 friends on facebook, and received about 40 hits from facebook on each new article I publish. I am alos very active on facebook.
I also receive a good deal of traffic from stumbleupon, even though I am not active on that site.
I mainly use these sites for backlinks and it does help google recognize my hubs.
I backlink all hubs to my blog, my facebook page, a group on facebook called Read Wayne's Articles, stumbleupon, digg, delicious and reddit.
I have a list I use:TWITTERFACEBOOKSTUMBLE UPONREDDITSHETOLDMEDIGGMy question is: If I want to keep posting all my hubs: which ones tolerate it and which don't?Like with some you have to socialize too---I think Twitter...
Nowadays all the social networking sites has the additional features as games. Also the most used social networking site like facebook has launched many new games for the users. I have just started playing...
When signing up for reddit, digg, snipsley, etc., etc., is it better to create a new user name or is it okay to use your Hubpage user name? I ask because if you leave a comment in a social network site with a link...
