9 Social Media Networks You’ve Never Heard Of

When you think of social media, you tend to think of the big mainstream networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. and forget that there are several sites like Facebook, twitter and Tinder. But for every huge social media network with hundreds of millions of users, there are plenty of much smaller ones that are still fairly popular, but aren’t that well known. Here are just some of the many smaller social media networks you’ve never heard of.

  1.  Next Door

The aim of this social media network is not to connect you with people around the world, but with people in your neighbourhood. It intends to bring communities together and help people get to know the people living nearby a bit better.

2. Chirp

The idea behind Chirp is that you send data (photos, videos and texts) through sound. Whatever you decide to send is encoded as a sound file; this can be played over any audio device and Chirp users in the vicinity will pick it up. Once connected to the internet, encoded files will become decoded and recipients will be able to view or hear the data in its original form.

3. Affluence

While more mainstream social media networks are open to everyone, Affluence isn’t. To become a member, you need to be a US dollar millionaire or have an annual income exceeding USD 200,000. The restrictive nature of this network is intentional; those who run it hope it will enable successful people to more easily make connections with other equally successful people.

4. Tout

Tout is basically the Twitter of videos. It enables you to view videos and share them with others, though there’s a catch: each video is no more than 15 seconds in duration.

5. Meet Up
