10 Social Networks For Special Interests
January 10, 2013 09:06 AM Vertical, or specialized, social networks connect you with people and and business opportunities around specific industries or affinities -- whether you're a doctor, or a cat lover.
There are many social networking sites geared for young people. Grom Social is unique in that it was created by a young person -- 11-year-old Zach. On the Grom site, Zach explains that the idea for the network came about after he had set up an account on an adult social networking site. Zach's father found out and made Zach deactivate the account. After finding existing social sites designed for kids too "childish," Zach set out to create his own, and Grom -- which includes a "bad word" filter, among other safety features -- was born.
