Some Alternatives to Facebook
Recently Google launched Google plus social networking site which is seen as a good alternative to Facebook, but from our experience it can’t be a really Facebook killer. Google plus is indeed a very useful social-networking site, but a normal (non-tech) user might not find Google plus to be as interesting as we find it as a blogger. Anyhow, we thought of creating a list of those Social-netwworking site which are best alternatives to Facebook, and you can pick one according to your usage pattern.

It is also necessary in the current lifestyle to know more about the ways to socialize with people, because social networking is no more only about good pastime. It is recently becoming a source for employers to find out those skills, qualities and best interests, in a person, that doesn’t usually show up in the corporate offices or job interviews, thus helping them to find the right candidate for a job. Especially this trend is very prominent for online artists, who exhibit their artistic skills on the internet and earn well from it, all through the social media interaction.

Here, in this article, are some social networking sites of various kinds, which are slowly growing to fame. They have their own notable differences from Facebook or Myspace, and it’s time for you to take a look at them and consider getting yourself an account.

Diaspora aims to be a distributed network, where totally separate computers connect to each other directly, will let us connect without surrendering our privacy. We call these computers ‘seeds'. A seed is owned by you, hosted by you, or on a rented server. Once it has been set up, the seed will aggregate all of your information: your facebook profile, tweets, anything. We are designing an easily extendable plugin framework for Diaspora, so that whenever newfangled content gets invented, it will be automagically integrated into every seed.


TrustWorks is a software company that enables private conversations within enterprise and social networks.  When a user needs assistance on any personal or business matter, the system sends a confidential message to one member of the community who has the relevant knowledge.  This contrasts the “news feed” model of Facebook, where users read as much or as little as they choose; it also contrasts the “email to all” model of LinkedIn Answers, which sends questions to many people.  For matters that are too sensitive to broadcast, or which require immediate responses, one-on-one communications get a faster and safer response.


webNetwork lets anyone start their own social networking community site with profiles, pictures, videos, music, events, and more. The software is fully template based, so you can change the look and feel of the site to make it stand out from others. It runs on your own server (which can be provided by Web Scribble), meaning you own that data, and no one else.


SNABBO is a free-to-use social networking website created expressly for the Baby Boomer generation. The name “Snabbo” is an acronym for Social Network Allowing Baby Boomers Only. Driven by nostalgia for the “good old days”, members are encouraged to use a photograph taken any time during the 1940's through the 1980's as their Profile page picture. The more information members provide about their past, the more likely someone can rediscover them. A member may list other names they have been known as during their lifetime. For example, you might have been known as Margaret Smith in elementary school, Maggie Smith in high school, Tootsie Smith in college and finally Meg Eldringhoff when you got married. Members are also able to list (with corresponding years) towns they grew up in, schools they attended, companies they have worked for, military service and organizations they have joined. Snabbo's “Find Friends” feature is able to successfully search for a person even if all you can remember is their nickname when you knew them in elementary school.


Bebo, by AOL, is growing in popularity in the United States but is one of the most popular in the UK and surrounding areas. From what I understand, Bebo is one of the few social networking sites that defaults your profile to private, a welcome feature for those looking to escape Facebook’s anti-privacy hands.There’s a large selection of third party social media integration along with the typical capabilities you’d expect such as photo tags, videos, music, etc.
