If you’re interested in setting up a group/community/social network, perhaps you might like to check out ‘The Fridge.’ The Fridge is a place where you can set up a free group/community/social network. There are plenty of places these days for setting up a group and/or a social network. You could of course try Google Groups, Grou.ps and/or Yahoo Groups. If you are happy to pay there are other possibilities including Ning. The Fridge is not a site I had even heard of until a few days ago, but it could be worth a look or worth experimenting with for a while.
A member of a Fridge group gets a personal profile, which has a wall similar to Facebook. You can also post a photo for your profile. It really is a very simple social network providing a very basic service. It really seems to be a way of having very basic communication with other members of the group. You can post a picture with a post. So basically it provides a secure and private place for communicating. I guess email really accomplishes the same thing to some degree.
Have a look at:
Thanks for your post! At the moment the Fridge is very simple and provides a simple place for media and conversation sharing.
The Fridge helps users organized and filter their friends and relationships into context instead of mixing it all together. Create a Fridge for your family, your fraternity friends, your wedding, or snowboarding club.
Thanks again for your post and keep an eye out for lots of new things to come!
I’m afraid I no longer support Grou.ps. See:
There are also changes at Google Groups and Yahoo Groups I believe.
