MSN has published a really funny feature showing the ten weirdest social networks on the web. If you thought Facebook was the worst thing going, you haven’t seen anything yet.
How about Lost Zombies for starters? Now there’s a community full of wholesome folk that you’d want to meet up with and chat over a cup of coffee!
Or how about Spot A Potty, where members post pictures of their favorite toilets? I don’t know about you, but if I was a member of Spot A Potty, I wouldn’t be showing my face to the camera or using my real name! The Google Adsense adverts are also quite interesting – nappy training?! I also didn’t realise that people could get so passionate about the positioning of toilet seats and the styles of toilet brushes….uuurgh!
The best one of all has to be My Free Implants, where girls ask men for money to get free breast implants! My jaw totally hit the floor when I saw this one. Basically if a woman feels that her breasts need a lift-me-up, she can set up a profile and ask for money. “Benefactors” can then donate money to her and she can have her operation. The woman’s reaction is then recorded on YouTube for all to see :
“Momma’s gettin’ new boobs!”. Oh man! Does the word “tacky” come to mind? It does for me!
Do you know of any other really weird social networks that makes My Free Implants seem tame by comparison? If so, I’d love to hear about it!
