Social networks have been all rage in recent years, with Facebook taking over one billion earthquakes to be the biggest. With so many social networks available to choose from which chance does a newcomer have?
Here's a quick look at Macprofile, a new social service built for Mac users. I'm not sure the world needs another social network, but hey; different types for different people, and it is possible that there are enough Mac users who need to hang out that Macprofile can capture. Maybe.
Registering to use Macprofile is easy. Create a username, add your email address, enter a password, fill in your personal information and you are in. The Macprofile experience begins with Dashboard and Control Menus for Mac Users, Q & A, Images, Groups, Events, Support and Deal. You have even allowed to have a profile avatar (choose wisely). Macprofile Dashboard ”
Macprofile also has user groups, including one for Mac servers (8 members), xScan users, Seattle Mac users, and Victoria, BC Mac users, so this Portland -OR-based service has a certain northwestern feeling.
The social network is so new that you find the most scary of little activity. Even the Q & A part was empty (30th of June). Macprofil's goal as a social network is obvious; improve the knowledge and enjoyment of the Mac, so that society grows, you can meet others from around the world, get some friends, learn by asking and sharing.
As another social network for Apple's customers, I wish the people at Macprofile well and hope they grow enough to become a viable resource for Mac information and sharing, but I wonder how a new venture like this can be successful when online the scene swims with social connections; Mac forums have been around for years and it's the most struggle to do it through a month at a time when advertising revenue falls due to terrible competition, ad blockers and dizzying users bouncing from one website to another.
Even the name & # 39; Macprofile & # 39; seems innocent and not memorable (MacCity? MacTreehouse?). There is little difference between Macprofile from other network and digital social holes.
