4 Social Networks Beyond the Usual Suspects

Feeling victim to social network fatigue? Whether you follow 500 people or friend 70 people, it can sometimes seem like weeks have passed by without an interesting tweet, status, or mobile upload. Break out of the rut and sign up for these four social networks guaranteed to make Internet sharing fun again.

  • Pinterest — Share your design aesthetic and all those gorgeous little things you come across when surfing the web. This site has users set up boards around a central theme like "camera accessories," "cool typography," or "Star Trek crafts" to share with the community. The in-browser add button makes pinning a cinch, and the simple user interface keeps site exploration from being overwhelming.
  • Instagram — A beautiful, easy way to show friends what you're doing without word limits. Available as a free iPhone app, take a photo in Instagram, add a filter, a quick caption, and easily share with followers or to Facebook and Twitter. The process is really that easy, and, after all, a picture is worth much more than 140 characters.
  • Tumblr — Sign in to Tumblr and just try to spend less than an hour on this sharing, blogging platform. With predesigned templates and a user-friendly dashboard, the personal blog you've been putting off can finally find a home. Search for other blog interests to follow, reblog their posts, and grow your own Tumblr community.
  • GetGlue — For entertainment junkies, connect with fellow Mad Men junkies when you check in as viewing a show or waiting in line for the newest Hollywood release. GetGlue partners with the media providers themselves to offer discounts and rewards to loyal gluers.

I love Pinterest! It's still in private beta though. Another website that's similar to Tumblr and Pinterest is weheartit.com.
