Niche Networking, the Next Big Thing in Social Networking
While there are a lot of social networking sites already available in the internet space, social networking as a concept is taking a different turn. Niche networking as the name suggests is created only for particular needs. It is a step further from regular social networking that connects likeminded people to discuss things that they are passionate about.
Rahul Razdan, President Product and Operations, ibibo said to the Hindustan Times
On popular social networking sites, often just 10 per cent of all your friends or colleagues are really active or posting information. The others just consume what is being posted. But niche social networks are all together a different activity where you end up contributing and reading about what really tugs your heart and mind.
Yogesh Bansal, Founder & CEO, ApnaCircle said
Changing user requirements are giving birth to various networking sites which are specifically responsible to cater to the ‘niche’ target audience in terms of their specific interests, backgrounds, professions and age group
Experts believe that Niche networking is a space where people that share interests can meet. It will be used as a platform for specific interests and will be used by only the audiences that are passionate about their common interests. This is considered the next step in the world of social networking. For more information, see the Hindustan Times.
