15 Personal Social Networking Sites For Your Interests

Facebook is big, it’s crowded, and if you’re simply looking for a place to connect with family and friends, then it’s definitely overwhelming. As the most popular social site on the internet, Facebook gives you more opportunities to meet people online than anywhere else, and that’s the problem.

There are alternatives though. Whether you want to share your interests, connect with other moms, or share your photos with family and friends, there are plenty of sites to do just that without getting overwhelmed with all the things to do.

    Recently Enukee and Diaspora have gained a lot of steam from the Facebook Fallout. Both are privacy based websites. Personally I prefer Enukee but both sites are great.

    Wonderful list Jinger! I’ve always been a fan of Wikia and ever since I became fascinated with online games :) I can always find very good dedicated wikis for each game I play and I also decided to join communities and networks to get player guides and other interesting stuff for my hobby. Thanks!
