What is LiveJournal? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Internet applications glossary:

LiveJournal is a social media platform that allows members to keep a blog, journal or diary and share their interests.

Each LiveJournal account contains a journal page that shows all of a user's most recent journal entries and links to comments pages, similar to a blogroll. Privacy settings allow LiveJournal members to edit their friends list, set viewer restrictions or make certain posts -- or their entire account -- completely private so that their journal resembles a diary. Members can customize their profiles by uploading an avatar or image files and choose between a free or paid account. Paid accounts offer members the ability to send text messages, voice posts, take advantage of extra storage and get access to the "Express Lane," which makes the LiveJournal experience faster.

LiveJournal is also the name of the free and open source server software that was designed to run the LiveJournal virtual community.
