Today social networks are experiencing a real boom. With the help of these people, people learned to communicate again, this time using the Internet. Special websites help you find people who are close by the interest and spirit of people. However, sometimes these interests can be very unusual.
The boom of social networks has spawned not only giants, where the number of participants is estimated at millions, but also very strange, niche sites. In addition, many parodies or simply clones appeared on the same leaders. Let’s talk about the most unusual social networks created in the world.
Their strange social network was created in Russia. And it exists only for dog breeders. It would seem that the unusual thing is that people communicate there about their interests? Only here blogs are led by four-legged pets. There you can see the posts of poor animals that are lost. They do not understand what people are talking about to them and do not take caresses. But their future owner the dog immediately recognize. Touching stories do not differ much from ordinary human. Especially dogs have all the attributes that other social networking users have – friends, photos, statuses, comments and profiles.
This service is a collective microblogging, the purpose of which is anonymous flirting. The network has become so popular that in just the first six months of its existence it has already gained 20 million views, which provided an investment of $ 5 million. It’s interesting that even actor Ashton Kutcher decided to invest his money in the new service. On the site, participants are asked to first choose a place for future flirting. It can be a city or even some specific part of it – a district, a park, an educational institution. Then, cryptic messages will be sent anonymously. Flirting is a pretty delicate thing, and the site allows you to do this in a rather unusual way. Our compatriots have so little appreciated this service – in Moscow chat the correspondence is rather sluggish.
This community of people unites the fortunetellers. No, not those who predict the future of people or the weather. Participants in the bulk are relevant to the field of information technology, making predictions in this area. Predictions are quite bold. People argue that Artemy Lebedev can tackle politics or about when Yandex will release a phone under its own brand. Under the forecast, participants leave comments and assess the probability of such an event. It should come true, as the forecaster’s rating increases. But to register in this service is not so easy – you will need an invitation.
To communicate and meet people of non-traditional sexual orientation, there are many services. This differs in that here it is also proposed to determine the geographic location. Under the iPhone, an application is developed in which you can see on the map where the gays are looking for dating. This social network has chosen a narrow group of people, but it is very grateful for such a useful service. The site was also famous for the fact that once at the conference on innovation the Russian oligarch Mikhail Fridman almost began to search for him with gay men in the hall of the Academy of National Economy. Fortunately, the threats did not go further. And the presenter of the conference, Anatoly Chubais, thanked the active speaker for preserving the secrets of private life. It remains to wait, when at another conference with the participation of VIP-persons someone will learn to learn grindr.com.
This social network is dedicated to the deceased. Even the very name of it – “We Remember”, rather significant. It’s good that it never occurred to anyone to write posts on behalf of deceased relatives. In this social network, people create pages on which they spread photos of the deceased and devote them epitaphs. Sociality of this resource adds a kind of analog “friends.”Here they are called admirers and mostly are relatives of other deceased people. They leave their comments, messages and epitaphs, report on ordered services for the peace of the soul of their loved ones. It’s interesting that the author of this strange social network was made even with the analogue of “husk” that is present in Facebook. Here is the “Minute of silence”.
If social networks appear like mushrooms after the rain, so why not be born to the numerous parodies on them? True, most of them exist in the form of only screenshots of non-existent sites. But Ncludr is a real wave, and also a technologically advanced parody. The new user fills in the application form during registration. Based on the responses to it, the site itself creates a person’s profile. At the same time, both the main page and the user’s page is a vivid parody of all those stamps used by the creators of popular social networks. Ncludr also contains pages of “regular” users. Among them stand out Ronald McDonald, Chuck Norris, Merry Poppins, Paper Clip, Lincoln Plastic Head and many other folklore characters. At the time of the creation of such a resource, it was quite a sharp and funny parody. But today the resource has not lost its popularity.
World fashion on the social network eventually swept Russia. The very first portal of this kind, Odnoklassniki, deserved the largest number of skits – “Sobelniki”, “Glamurniki”, “One-eyed”, “Kindergartners”, “Lovers”. In this case, it is worth talking about non-existent sites, the screenshots of which were on the Web. However, some really existed and had a simple and extremely simplistic functional. Over time, the boom of parodies has come to naught, many such sites have performed their entertainment function and are closed or lost. The most technologically advanced version of all turned out to be “Cellmates”. Her advance is that there are as many as two pages. On the second you can go from the starting line, if you try to choose your colony (analogue school in “Classmates”). Instead of the “Reply” button there is a button “Give a crab”, and “Close” is replaced with “Cock Rooster”.
Created its own social network for filmmakers as well – directors, screenwriters and just those close to it by profession or spirit. It should be noted that this new idea is not, it tried to implement dozens of times. Only here it is necessary to take into account the needs of these specific users and manifest fantasy. For example, in Russia created “Kinokrug”, an analogue of “My Circle”, only for filmmakers. However, there is very little activity there. Why not make a site with a spark, the enthusiasts decided and created the “Lost Zombies”. Here the collective, albeit amateurs, but also indifferent to the image of walking dead, right on the site comes up with his own film about zombies. Like-minded people participate in discussions, come up with unusual twists of the plot and even upload photos and videos that will be used in the future film. It remains only to wait for the release of this movie masterpiece, the date has not yet been reported.
Typically, social network creators operate on a simple template. A successful site is already taken, its clone is done and reassigned to another audience. It has already been mentioned about facebook for dogs, classmates for prisoners and my circle for filmmakers. REMcloud is a “twitter” designed for dreams. If in an ordinary microblog each one creates his own tape of records, then in REMcloud there is one tape and everyone wishing to dream their dreams. You can find really unique records. I must say that this is not the only site where users share their dreams. But it is at REMcloud the most understandable and user-friendly interface.
This social network is called simply and understandably – “My free implants”.At the same time, from the pictures on the main page it becomes clear which artificial parts of the body are being discussed. This is not a denture, but a silicone breast. The network is created for those girls who want to become more attractive, but do not have the money for a plastic surgery. They place their photos and indicate the chosen clinic and the amount needed for breast augmentation. In addition to girls in the social network, there are two more types of users. Donors give money they like to the candidates they like, while they can also talk to their chosen one beforehand. There are plastic surgeons who not only advertise their clinics, but also give free advice. As practice shows, depending on the external data of the girl and her needs, it is quite realistic to collect the amount required for implants in just 2-3 months. Naturally, donors donate money for a reason. After all, the social network also performs the functions of a dating site.
