Social media is not only vital for businesses and their advertising but its also a thriving community for social interaction and apart from the larger sites such as Facebook and Twitter, smaller niche social media sites are making their mark.
A vertical social network is a social media site that has a niche market and connects people to specific interests or hobbies. They are designed to attract users that want to meet other users with the same interest, not so much a dating site but a site that brings like -minded people together so they explore their passion with others.
As business opportunities go, this is a really good market to look into because everyone has an interest they are passionate about and can write about. The thriving Pet market is an excellent example of a social media platform that can be created and the possibilities are endless from sharing your passion for a specific Dog breed to sharing Dog walking locations in your area, giving people the chance to meet and walk their Pets.
Other thriving communities include the fitness market, there are now many social networking sites that share information on fitness opportunities in certain areas, running clubs that people can join for those wanting to run and meet with others.
Behance is an example of one such site that offers the chance for designers to get together and discuss and showcase their work, discovering new art.
ResearchGate is a platform for scientists and researchers to share research articles and information. The site was established in 2008 by a group of Scientists and is now the biggest networking site of its kind.
There are lots of other business opportunities for social networking sites and there are no limitations when it comes to topics. If you are passionate about a specific topic, why not start your own group and see where it takes you.
