Are you overwhelmed by the spam and junk that clutters your newsfeed on Facebook? Are you sick and tired of the tweets people post every five seconds? And Google + not what you thought it was?
Well if any of these are true for you, then here are 5 really cool niche networks that you might be interested in!
- Care2: This online platform allows you to join a community of more than 19 million members who share your passion on various causes (animal welfare, the arts, peace, politics, etc). You can talk to people who have the same interests, swap stories, send e-cards and more.
- Dogster/Catster: This site is for all you dog and cat lovers out there. Both sites have a online magazine section, but the community area is the best. You can create a profile for your pet, add photos, and chat with 3 million other dog/cat owners about anything regarding pet care.
- My Last Wish: This is an application available to only iPhone users. On a Wish Wall, users post what they want to do before they die and can become friends with other who share the same “wishes”. In addition, you can interact beyond the network if you decide to share your personal contact information.
