Social networking: it's not just about who you already know

Posted in Friendship.

In this day and age, technology has taken social networking to new heights; powerhouses like MySpace and Facebook dominate our lives. Both are great forums to reconnect with old friends, keep in touch with family and manage existing relationships. Both also offer suggestions to meet people you don’t know based on connections to existing friends; however it’s not their specialty nor is it a forerunning goal of the sites.

At one time or another in our lives we’ve all felt like our circle of friends left something to be desired. Perhaps it’s simply to increase the size of the existing group or maybe a need is felt to find a brand new group of friends with new interests and fresh insights. But where does one turn in such instances? For those who lack the time, talent or the assertiveness to make friends with the person next to them, there are many great resources that most have not heard of. Las Vegas has a plethora of forums geared specifically at meeting new people.

Meetup.com and Meetin.org have been around for a while but haven’t seen much popularity or success. A new breed of social networking site has emerged though that can make many people’s friend-making dreams a reality; it’s called Frucle.com. Unlike sites such as MySpace and Facebook which are geared towards connecting with existing friends, as well as sites like Match.com or eHarmony.com which not only charge for membership but that focus on romantic connections, Frucle’s sole objective is to help the user find new friends and then assist the them in taking those new connections into the real world.

As our lives seem to get busier and busier, tools such as these come at the perfect time. Complete with interest-based personality matching, Frucle is the next step in social networking
