What's New No Comment

ย Letโ€™s look down to those neglected networking sites who couldnโ€™t outbid their competitors in the race staying alive.

10. ConnectU

It was launched in the year 2002, with the initial name as HarvardConnection by Mark Zuckerbergโ€™s Harvard classmates. It would have been alive if Mark Zuckerberg was a part of it and not Facebook.

9. The Hub

It was founded in 2006 by Walkart, a well-known supermarket. It was solely focused on teenagers to promote โ€˜School your wayโ€™ which was to act as to increase the sales of its products. It closed down after 10 weeks due to teens being uninterested in the same.

iyomu-Social-Networking-sites

8. iYomu

Founded in 2007 by David Wolf Rooney and Frances Valintine, iYomu targeted only the adults above 18 years of age. It was created with the hope to give adults all those benefits which other sites at that time didnโ€™t provided. It was failed in June 2008 due to adults not wanting a different site for them.

Eons-Logo

7. Eons

It was founded by the founder of Monster.com, Jeff Taylor in 2006 as a platform for Baby Boomers and those above the age of 40 years to promote funeral advertisements, etc. However, it closed as it failed to gain needed attraction.

6. Friendster

Started in 2002 as a social networking site and was successful in gathering enough visitorsโ€™ from Asia. But, it slowly lost its charm though it was re-launched in June 20111 as a gaming network. It is still active in South East Asia.

Social-Networking-sites-LiveJournal

3. LiveJournal

As the name conveys, it allows users to maintain a journal, blog or dairy of their own. It was founded in 1999 by American programmer Brad Fitzpatrick. It was used by political pundits of Russians as their medium of political commentary which led to its vulnerability. But, it is still keeping up with the controversies and keeping it afloat.

Social-Networking-sites-MySpace

2. MySpace

One of the popular sites of 225-2208, launched by Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson in 2003, MySpace deals with music especially the pop culture. With the introduction of new websites every year, it lost its significance.

Orkute-Logo-Social-Networking-sites

1. Orkut

Once the most popular social networking site, launched in 2014 by Orkut Buyukkokten, a Google employee was designed to be able to connect with their lost friends and relatives. It was most visited by the Indians and Brazilians. The site was closed down on 30th September, 2014 due to lack of privacy issues and others.

โ€œAfter over two years of research we chose Simplio. We are so far very satisfied. These people answered the phone on a Sunday and fixed a problem that was not even their fault. It was the host company which I had chosen that had caused our site to go down.โ€

Outstanding in both knowledge and professionalism.

โ€œThey are now part of the Diastasis Rehab business team after working with them almost a year now. I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart. After a bad experience with a programmer, I needed a new programmer (one that knew prestashop shopping cart) and most important one that I could trust. Finding all three was a difficult process! Lucky for me I found them. I cannot say enough about the diversity of services that this company provides. Every step of the way they make amazing suggestions to increase my sales and they get back to be right away either by email or phone. They have even created a simple and easy check out program for Presta Shop. They are actually a one stop shop! They updated my SSL, are setting up and changing my server to a dedicated one, setting up streaming of my DVD, website design, creating a specific program for address verification on Presta cart and handled the integration of Presta cart with my fulfillment house. I am now working on developing an APP with themโ€

Simplio really helped me out of a jam.
