Start your own social network with Heart Internet | Heart Internet Blog – Focusing on all aspects of the web


Social networking is all the rage nowadays and Facebook has recently become the most searched for brand and 2nd most visited site in the UK (Source: Hitwise).

According to Hitwise, “Social networks now account for 1 in every 10 UK Internet visits and 1 in every 5 page views. Only search engines receive more UK Internet visits than social networks.”

This is only set to continue as the social networks targeting specific niches explode on to the scene catering for the personal tastes and interests of users in a way the large generic social networks can’t. The niches within the niches of Music, cooking, travel, web design, sport, fashion, geographic locations, science… etc are all up for grabs.
