Frankenstein Labs Working Overtime on MySpace Clones

In: Tech Reviews

28 Aug 2006

My goodness but the MySpace clone category is starting to get very full. Just this last week, we’ve seen the release of:

  • Angler’s Lounge – If you want to get your great outdoors fix from your armchair, this is a great site to visit. Mingle online with other fisherman and brag about the one that got away.
  • BakeSpace – Cooks, unite! While your husband is online visiting Angler’s Lounge, why don’t you whip out the laptop for some hardcore recipe trading over at BakeSpace?
  • Motortopia – A MySpace clone for enthusiasts of cars, bikes, boats and planes. Super-slick design!
  • MyChurch – Online communities for churches. I stand corrected – Joe from MyChurch was nice enough to point out that they have more in common with Facebook than with MySpace. Thanks Joe!
  • In addition, the site touted as “the MySpace for parents”, Minti, is out of beta this week.

I’m waiting for DogHerder.com, the MySpace for households with more dogs than people. Then I’ll know I’ve truly arrived!

Hi Dani,

MyChurch is NOT a Myspace clone… we’re a Facebook clone πŸ™‚

Thanks for the link – if you’re interested in doing a review, I can send you a review guide to show you we’re making something very different from the 1000 *space.com sites out there.

Hi Dani

Thanks for blogging about Minti, even if the mention was not all that positive πŸ˜‰

We believe Parents are one of the key segments that need a specific social community, and this has been justified by the activity on the site steadily raising week on week since we launched in Beta on March 8th.

Also: Not sure if you have checked out dogster.com πŸ˜‰

Kindest Regards
Clay

Also I should have mentioned that we are not just a social network, our other half is an encyclopedia on how to be the best parent. We term it… a “parenting advice-opedia”.

I guess you could say we are a mix between Wikipedia, MySpace and Virtual Tourist.

Hi Dani!

It’s Babette from BakeSpace here –

Thanks for writing about our site. We’re thrilled to be in same category as some of our other “myspace clones” and we *embrace* the term. It’s a big world and there’s a place for everyone!

Thanks again and stop by soon –

LOL, looks like I started a trend of social network founders coming in here and thanking you for their respective mention.

Dani, I remember you contacted me about doing a review. Still interested?
