Social media is evolving. The basement geeks that built the first social networks have moved into the niche market. Facebook is still essential for any digital identity, but now other platforms like Instagram and Loopster are being designed to share specific types of information. Which got me thinking: why stop with photos and videos?
Here are five possible social media platforms for sharing other vital aspects of one’s life:
Crassfone: For sharing inappropriate thoughts you know should be kept to yourself yet feel the irrational need to blurt out in a crowded room.
Triv-o-gram: For sharing random bits of trivia.
Noisss: For sharing non-music sound files
Aro-matic: Until smell-o-vision is invented, this platform will allow users to share descriptions of their favorite smells.
Splice: For sharing the sequence of a person’s genes.
Social networks allow us to share every aspect of our lives, the good, the bad, and the boring. Who cares if no one wants to (or shouldn’t be allowed) to know every thought that pops into our heads and every one of our actions?
