Facebook Is Going to the Dogs!
With almost 75 million dogs as pets in the US, it was only a matter of time before dog-lovers decided to form their own version of Facebook. Dogster is a canine-centered online social networking with which pet owners speak as their pets, and seek information about problems and behavioral issues.
There are almost 350,000 members on Dogster, and the pets – barring any difficulties with typing – can upload pictures and videos of their favorite tricks!
As I write this post, I see the emergence of The Relationship Economy– even on the four-legged level! People and pets seek relationships! Though dogs cannot really enjoy the virtual world of networking and relationships, their owners can engage the networks and forums to ask for advice, answers, and even schedule a playdate for their pet (in the physical world).
Accepting the fact that people seek relationships – both personal and professional – we see that there is a desire to belong. Facebook is truly going to the dogs – with Dogster! We are approaching critical mass with all these social networks.
How ’bout it?
