Content Creation for Niche Social Networking Sites

By on September 15, 2009

This is one of many posts in our “Niche Social Networking  Sites” series, highlighting some of the lesser-known social media sites online.  A solid social media strategy will often incorporate presence on both well-known, and lesser-known social networking sites.  Whether you have a business in this a particular field, are interested in something new, or could use some of the tools provided by a niche site, we aim to provide a sampling of what’s out there.  Got a community you’re involved in that excites you?  Let us know about it!

Today’s installment in covers sites that offer you the ability to create something – a story timeline, a photo book, or even your own social networking site.  The first two sites can either stand alone or be connected to your other social media profiles, while the third site is something different altogether (in a good way).

Multiply

Upload photos, video and other content, create custom calendars, photo books, etc, and notify friends when new content is added.  A simple site that is easy to use.

OurStory

Create a timeline about anything (memories, the development of something, or someone, life stories etc) using videos, stories, photos, and so on.  Invite friends and family to view it on your site, or link it to other social networking sites.

Ning

Ning is a unique social networking site that will actually allow you to create your own social network centered around an idea or theme that you choose.  If creating a network isn’t what you’re interested in, however, you can simply join any of the hundreds that other people have created.
