Unheard Of…

Social networking sites has been the cheapest way to buy social life. But, due to its very much accessibility to acquire one, you can’t either tell which friend is true. It is like partying into a virtual disco crib, everyone is your dance partner but only few knows your how to groove with your dance moves. Anyway, Facebook got their way soaring high, selling like pancakes, and I can’t deny it they’re just great. But they’re not the only social networking sites that exist. Some might can mention a three or four but actually there are more than a hundred with users ranging from 10,000 plus to up to 600,000,000 plus. So I’m gonna share to you some these sites we are unheard of but ironically, popular. I’m not a registered user to some of these, I don’t feel the responsibility to keep my accounts updated.

1. Facebook. You probably hear this so I’ll skip this one.

2. QZone. One of the most active sites in the industry, with its superb features like writing blogs, keeping diaries, sending photos, and listening to musics. And not only that, one can also change the profile looks of the user. Just like Friendster. Also, one can also select accessories that suits to the individuals taste. With 480,000,000 plus users, this sure is popular. But wait, just as you think this is world-wide, no! This is only available to the Chinese community. They sure do comprise the world’s largest population.

3. Habbo. Third on the spot with 200,000,000 users. This site markets to teens and know how they managed to grow too soon? They just had the better gameplay to pool teens. You started as the hotel owner and the guest, well, are the other hotel-owner. The virtual ambient feel of a video game makes everything seem interesting to play, yet the goal of socializing as well.

4/5. Twitter and Windows Live Spaces (formerly MSN Spaces). They’re not uncommon sites so let’s go to the next.

6. Bebo. Blog Early, Blog Often, tha’s what Bebo is. Users receive a personal profile page where they can post blogs, photographs, music, videos and questionnaires to which other users may answer. It’s also a multilingual site just like Habbo. Gaining 117 million users, this social networking site puts it in the six spot. Additionally, users may add others as friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves.

7. Vkontakte. Don’t even know how that reads. But it land the next spot with 110 million users. It is popularly know in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Vkontakte is doubted as “facebook clone” since it has a lot of similarity, see how the logo and color scheme looks.

8. Tagged. With 100 million active users. This was awarded with “2010 Hottest San Francisco Companies”, thus making it popular. It also has a lot of controversies regarding email marketing and privacy policy. But anyhow, it manages to resolve all of that.

9. Orkut. Owned and run by google, this social networking site gathers 100 million users. The service is designed to help users meet new friends and maintain existing relationships. Although Orkut is less popular in the United States than competitors Facebook and MySpace, it is one of the most visited websites in India and Brazil. As of March 2011, Alexa traffic ranked Orkut 102nd in the world; the website currently has more than 100 million active users worldwide. Anyone 18 years old or older can join Orkut.

10. LinkedIn. This is for professional and business networking.

The list goes on. Wherever you are there are a lot of social networking sites to choose from. As long as there’s people feeding to the diverse demograph, then these sites won’t go out of business. Nah! They still do when they gained a little traffic. hehehe. It doesn’t matter how many social networking sites you are into, as long as you take responsibility among your accounts. Best advice from people who know better: go out of your house, that is where the best social life is found.
