    The forums are and I think that they are leaning more and more towards this.

    In a certain respect, yes it is. It is a platform for writers. So, where as other social networks are completely niche free, this one has a purpose. For writers to write and share their work, with people who enjoy the past time also.
    Some may disagree with me, but seeing as writing is a form of communication, why write on the internet, publicly, if you are not contacting ( socializing) with others?

    Given that content of a personal nature is against the TOS, I don't think HubPages is a social network.  You don't share pictures and connections with your family and friends here, you can't have a personal blog here or your Hubs will get unpublished.

    Yes, social networks are places where people can establish friendship and find other friends interested in the same topics as them. If this is not a social-website, then neither is Twitter, because it works on the same basis of messaging instead of "quick chat" and it has status updates.

    Everything about Hubpages is Social, the only difference is you're making money & at the same time writing about things you enjoy. It's secondary function is socialisation, from your followers to your helpers.

    I think it depends on how you use it. It can be used as a semi-social network most often to liaise with people you don't actually know outside real life, but with similar interests, but I think I use it more to learn stuff from other hubbers rather than an interaction tool as such.

    For me also recently my hub views are now only 5% from hubpages and 95% from search engines etc so I am tending to use it more of an earning and learning platform rather than a social network.
