everloop social network for kids

Everloop is a great alternative to Facebook for kids in the 8-13 range who want to socialize online while still being safe.

Every time I see one of my friends’ kids join Facebook, I cringe a little. Oftentimes, these children are under Facebook’s required age (13 years), but even a young teen often doesn’t use much discretion when posting online. Okay, let’s be honest. Many adults don’t use discretion when posting online either! The fact of the matter is that Facebook isn’t a great place for kids unless you’re watching over their shoulder every time they are online, which is pretty unrealistic for most parents.

nextdoor private social network

Get to know your neighbors! Nextdoor is a new way to create your very own private social network for your local community.

One of the things I love about my current neighborhood is that I know my neighbors. The area where I live is up-and-coming, but not without its problems. I like knowing that I can rely on the people who live in the houses near mine to call me if they see anything weird going on, especially when they know I’m not at home.

FixMeUp

FixMeUp is a new dating/matchmaking application for Facebook that utilizes the connections and the relationships that you already have to help you make the new ones that you want.

By now, you or someone you know has tried an online dating service – and let’s all be honest, it’s a pretty strange scene. From being propositioned by strangers behind murky images to trying in vain to pull off a three-line text-message pick-up, the online dating market has been in chaos, with more disappointments and failures than successes. Many of these sites boil dating down to a virtual people auction that often leaves users feeling vulnerable, confused, and disconnected – and a little more lonely than when they started.

world leaders on twitter 07-01-2013

Twitter has become so immensely popular that world leaders on Twitter account for 75% of them globally. It’s no wonder Twitter is on its way to IPO.

In 2011 the world came to truly understand the revolutionary impact of social media. As a result of the movement in Middle East, images were distributed through Twitter, Facebook and other mainstream social media networks, which served as a catalyst to an already disturbed situation. There was no denying the unrest; so much so that social scientists and media experts credited social media for rallying people together around a cause: peace.
