I was just enjoying a bit of Wired magazine in between tedious work-related tasks, and I laughed out loud at this short feature about non-MySpace/Facebook social networks. Here are some highlights:
Trek Passions (trekpassions.com)
What it is: Sci-fi personals for Star Trek fans
Who you'll meet: Men; sad, lonely men
What's Annoying: Overzealous warriors of the Klingon Empire. Losers still debating Kirk vs. Picard.
Beautiful People (us.beautifulpeople.net)
What it is: A network you have to be voted into based on your appearance
Who you'll meet: Narcissists, liars
What's annoying: "Looks matter," as the saying goes, but not, apparently, when it comes to Web design.
Stop Cyberbullying (stopcyberbullying.ning.com)
What it is: A safe place for frank discussions on the topic of Internet bullying
Who you'll meet: Pussies
What's annoying: Dare to call them pussies, and they'll gang up on you mercilessly.
