I’ve begun dabbling in other social networks, just to see what kind of things are popping up now that Facebook had its less-than-stellar IPO. Although I still see Facebook hanging around for quite a while, there are definitely some others that may be worth noting.
You can’t talk about emerging social networks without bringing up Path. I won’t spend too much time discussing this one, as I’ve actually already written a blog post reviewing it here. There are still some aspects of Path that could bear improvement, and for me it’s still not quite engaging, since I haven’t succumbed to adding a bunch of randos yet. I think it sorely needs some sort of way to search out common interests for those of us who don’t have a bunch of friends on it. Otherwise, it’s a great mobile app with a fluid interface. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s worth a look, especially if you’re heavily involved in the mobile sphere.

Also, after my Part 2 blog post, I received some information from LoveIt. I think it’s great that they’re paying attention to what’s being said about their product, and that they’re following up on it. They notified me that there are some specific differences between LoveIt and Pinterest, such as allowing private collections, recommendations to others, organizational tools, and users can also follow original sources that posted the image. The organizational tool is pretty nice, because it allows you to move multiple items at once. You can grab from many different collections and drag them to one location, as indicated in the video below. I may not give up on LoveIt quite yet.
I’ll likely do a wrap up in Part 4, with one more network that I just started looking into. This one takes social to a local level. Be sure not to miss it!
