From super models to hunters: 10 more odd niche social networking sites

Last week it was everything from Bugs Bunny to death. This week’s discovery in the world of niche social networking sites features:

  1. HunterShare — the only thing better then getting together over a real dead animal is getting together over a virtual one.
  2. travlbuddyTravBuddy — TravBuddy is one of a number of different networking sites for travelers, but to me it stands out because of its slogan. Now I’ll admit to having a few gray hairs (in full honesty at this point I only have a few non-gray hairs) so maybe this is a cultural reference that others don’t get. That said, “fellow travelers” used to be a euphemism for communists. So maybe they should have more red in their logo?
  3. Zebras — for Zebras. I don’t know how they will fill out their profiles or what they will have to chat about but the headline says: Social Networking Software Tracks Zebras and Consumers. BTW, zebras are one of the nastiest breeds of animal there is. Even nastier than consumers.
  4. MePeace — For Israelis, Arabs and Palestinians who don’t want to kill each other. Here’s hoping there are more than one of each.
  5. ASmallWorld, ModelsHotel & DarwinDating — For, respectively, super models, super models and people who think they’re as attractive as super models but not as accomplished.
  6. PropertyQube & StreetAdvisor — Where property owners can get together and brag about how much their homes used to be worth.
  7. Eons, Rezoom, Multiply, Maya’s Mom and Boomertown — So many sites chasing so many baby boomers.
  8. DiggFoot — a social network of social network sites. It’s getting awfully meta in here people.
  9. Sermo — Doctors.
  10. Refresh Phoenix — Probably the weirdest social networking site yet: It’s for tech geeks to get together IN PERSON. I am so not ready for this.

  1. Hi Constantine,

    I am sure you will be interested in iHipo (www.ihipo.com) – a startup in the recruiting 2.0 scene. It’s a combination of a job board and a social network, focusing on students and young professionals seeking international internships or jobs.

  2. Hi there

    You may also be interested to look at somuchworld.com and travelbookmarking.com
    They also have introductory
    videos showing you how to use them at somuchworld.com/about/intro and travelbookmarking.com/proof

    I think they are really helpful and a bit different from others I have seen. The only thing I would say is that the reviews sections feel a little bit empty still and probably need a bit more content.

  3. StreetAdvisor is not just for existing property owners – it is for people planning to move to a new area so they can check out reviews of different places to help them choose. People can write reviews about their streets and local areas whether they are home owners or renters and share their own thoughts about their neighborhood.
