Researchers at Men's Health magazine took time off from working on their six-packs and popping V's to grade the most socially networked cities in America. Kansas City, we're just average.

Men's Health gave KC a C grade, which places Kansas City at No. 52 on the list. We're far behind the rest of the country, including St. Louis (B grade), which ranked 24, but better than No. 66 Wichita (C-). At least we're not El Paso (F).



The Kansas City Business Journal reported

that Men's Health compiled the "list by measuring the number of

Facebook and LinkedIn users per capita, overall Twitter use, and traffic

generated by the big social networks. It also based the list on the

percentage of households that use chat rooms and blogs." Yeah, right.

Good luck counting all that up. 

Here's the 10 best cities for social networking:

1. Washington, A+


2. Atlanta, A+


3. Denver, A+


4. Minneapolis, A+


5. Seattle, A+


6. San Francisco, A


7. Orlando, Fla., A


8. Austin, Texas, A


9. Boston, A


10. Salt Lake City, A-
