The commercial. ad-supported social networks are so dangerous that I 
not only do not use them but actually block both Google and facebook
in /etc/hosts. I've even asked people I work with not to post photos 
containing me to Facebook due to their facial recognition database.

It would seem to be that any special-purpose distro would be actively
sought out using whatever search engine a user or contributor normally
relied on.
