My 'Social Zone' is where ever I am at the moment...
And I'm usually all over the place.

Risa is indeed a beautiful place to spend time! The sunshine, the water, the cave, the privacy due to no one else on the map, the hut way up atop the hill from which you can see the entire map, the hut atop the cliff from which you get a scenic view of the beach and ocean, it is all just amazing! ()
But in terms of "social zones," Risa does not qualify in my opinion because the only other players I have EVER seen are fleetmates I just so happen to travel with.
I wish they could make Risa a better place to hang at.
Adding some themed mini-games, themed clothing, pubs... and whatever enjoyable activities they can think of to include.
Even add the "horga'hn" for RP:s.
No exchange though. No business while on vacation!
Edit: Oh..I mostly hanging on ESD. The political/religious discussions can really fry my brain! Still enjoyable.
I think the worst are places like K7 as i just find them to be quite dull.
places like Vulcan, Risa, Andoria and Defera annoy me more as they are so useless. They look great but a waste. They need a damn good make over. repeatable missions, easy transwarps, all the banks, commodity brokers, unique doff missions. anything to drive people to them.
