Using an Internet service to connect with friends, family members and coworkers is a favorite pastime of millions of Americans, but there are some social media sites that have fallen by the wayside.
Some newer social media sites are also struggling to gain popularity in a world where Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest dominate.
Facebook users balk at privacy settings that have become less and less private, so Social Number is attempting to cater to the demographic of social media users who have left Facebook in favor of a more private online presence.
Social Number uses a number to identify users, and there are no pictures shared with other members that could identify users. This gives Social Number members the ability to vent about work, talk about what they did last night or dish about guilty pleasures without worrying about the information being broadcast with their name attached.
Many people are unaware that the website that was once considered the most popular social media site is still in operation, but it is. Although it has changed hands several times since it was started in 2003, people still have the option to create a profile and keep up with their friends, family members and work contacts through the social media site.
Unfortunately, hanging out on MySpace tends to be lonely these days.
Tagged has a concept similar to Facebook, and the social media site has been around since 2004. However, Tagged is geared toward helping people make new connections instead of just keeping in touch with current and old friends.
Internet service providers including CLEAR Internet allow users to connect from anywhere to give users the opportunity to enjoy truly wireless Internet. While a router at home keeps even laptop users tethered to a very limited space surrounding the router, affordable 4G Internet plans can offer mobile surfing opportunities.
