Social networks get find their niche

I’ve been saying for a while that the future of social networking isn’t in larger, mass-appeal sites but in smaller, niche sites. Here’s some of the growing number of niche social networking sites:

  • Dogster – make your dog the connection point between you and other dog fans
  • Spout – connecting to other film fans
  • imbee – social networking for kids
  • Dwarf Date – dating for little people
  • Tribals Tattoo Network – you have tattoos, they have tattoos… talk to each other!
  • aSmallWorld – social network for the elites
  • SneakerPlay – for people who really, really love their shoes…
