A niche social network is a social network comprised of members of a particular niche market. The development, population, and administration of such a social, while possessing properties of a global social network does require different skills and special treatment by the developer. This blog is for the discussion of those differences.
It is amazing how quick niche social networks have grown. I am attempting to review, catalog, and monitor these sites. Below is an ever growing list of niche social networking sites. (I am including sites that are built on community building sites like Ning.) Also I have included links to my review of these sites so you can help determine where you want to build a profile and participate. If there isn’t a review I just haven’t gotten to it yet… This list will be continually updated and tweaked.
