10 Social Networking Sites You Do Not Know


We have been using social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Have you ever wondered about other social networking sites which still run now without popularity? Though they are not popular like Facebook or Twitter or YouTube, they still have their unique features. There should be a specific reason behind the biggest social networking sites why they became popular. People are much driven towards Facebook and Twitter just because of the unique features they bought. User interface is one of the important aspect to be considered before they could design a social networking site. In that case, I can say that Twitter and Facebook really gives an interface which is much easier to users of all age groups. There are some social networking sites you do not know or you haven’t heard of.

Social Networking Sites You Do Not Know

Initially, when we got an internet connection, our online presence was much seen on Orkut and when days passed by, we moved to MySpace and finally to Facebook and Twitter. Now, I could see some people moving from Facebook to Google+ which really combines the concept of Facebook and Twitter. We still do not know where people would go in future.

    Dear Arjun,

    I saw your article on “How to add smilies to FB chat” Now my question, is it possible to add glittering images and gif images to FB comment. Can you please explain. Thanks.

      Hi Rajesh,
      Glad that you checked other articles too! People do add GIF in comments but that is due to animated pictures uploaded already when Facebook had that kind of breach. When the breach existed, people were able to upload animated GIF images on Facebook Page Tab. Now, Facebook has fixed it and they were no more able to upload such pictures. But still, the animated pictures which were uploaded before the patch is working. So, just by copy pasting the page tab link on any comment, the picture will be animating.
