5 Social Media Startups You Should Get To Know

Five Emerging Social Media Networks

Facebook and Twitter are kind of, well, everyone’s on them – parents, grandparents, even a few novelty pet accounts. In the age of the ever-decreasing attention span, you might wish to take a look at some of these emerging social networks, as proof that there are still novel ideas and thoughtful apps in a seemingly saturated market.


1. Whisper 

From the absurd to the philosophical, the witty to the heartbroken, Whisper allows users to anonymously share their thoughts and secrets. It is also emerging as a political tool for voicing opinions in otherwise oppressed and censored countries.

2. Shots

Love it or loathe it, selfie is now a staple of our everyday vocab. Shots is a mobile social network that panders to the narcissist in us, giving selfie-addicted snappers a medium by which to snap and share pics. You can reply to any given Shot and send private messages. Essentially like Snapchat but with the opportunity of bumping into a few famous faces, like the ever-delightful Justin Bieber.

3. WeChat

WeChat hasn’t broken the European and US markets just yet, but is dominating in the Asian sector. Essentially like WhatsApp or Viber, it’s another mobile text and voice messaging service. You can share videos, photos and create group chats but it’s the free calls that offer the most enticing opportunity.

4. Medium 

Medium is a microblogging platform that launched in 2012, created by Evan Williams and Biz Stone (formerly of Twitter…easy to see where the idea came from). It is essentially a storytelling platform, with the emphasis on thoughtful writing and high-quality social journalism.

5. Bubblews

Bubblews, another startup, allows users to create bubble posts and follow, interact, like – the usual. Where it differs is that the company will pay its users and compensate them for their posts in order to attract advertisers and traffic; it works backwards compared to traditional sites, but it’s a forward-thinking social network.
