No wonder that magazine is going out of business. Being from Germany, they are at least partially correct though.
StudiVZ is a blatant clone and myvideo was only started because of the success of YouTube.

SiteCharts.com was the first digg and online bookmarking service of its kind though. It has been around since the web1.0 ... if not web 0.0.
Digg is the clone!

i disagree with xing being a clone. it competes in the same field with linkedin, but that doesn't make it a clone.

I think that what people tend to forget when speaking of "clones" is that however popular a web 2.0 app may be, there are still many people who won't be able to use it because they speak very little English. While the majority of Israelis speak Hebrew to a certain extent, I've lived in Germany for a while and it's very apparent that the Germans, in general, speak very little English. Local adaptations, which are very popular in Germany, allow these users to "tap into" web 2.0 offerings (fring.com being a good example).

Akk, of course, I meant to say "While the majority of Israelis speak ENGLISH to a certain extent"
