If you own an Android tablet such as the Motorola Xoom or Samsung Galaxy Tab chances are you’ll use it in part for social networking. That being the case you’ll want to know some of the best social networking apps which are available. I’m hoping to make that search easier for you by compiling a list of some of the top favorites that are out there.
