So work isn't social then?

It's not recreational, but surely it's social.

Likewise, no one seems to have mentioned Plaxo, which seems very  
useful (but possibly more professional than recreational).

Also, I don't use most of these myself, but what about sites/services  
like del.icio.us, digg, reddit, Skype/AIM/etc... ?
