SocialGo.com is a website that allows its users to build their own sites and create their own networks. It is user-friendly and has features similar to that of Facebook and Triond.
In the last two years, I built two social networking websites at SocialGo. They are exclusively for my students’ use. We had writing activities and I let them submit their outputs to the site I built for each class. The students had to sign up before they could post their outputs to the site. They became members of the site as soon as they created their accounts.
What are the main features of SocialGo? Each member of your social network has a profile page where he/she can post pictures, videos, and blogs. Like Facebook, the member can have status and activity updates. Instead of poking (a Facebook user can poke a Facebook friend), you “wave” at your friends in SocialGo. These pieces of information are likewise available at every SocialGo profile: age, gender, and location.
Privacy may be controlled by the member of each network. For example, a blog may be posted at the magazine which means it can be read by everyone or it may be hidden from the other members or from the public. Other information on the profile may also be controlled by the profile owner. A member may add another member of the network as his/her friend.
Members of the network, can comment on other blogs. Like Triond, SocialGo has a forum where members can interact on certain topics. It also has messaging and chat features. Groups may be created by the members of the network.
As the network administrator, you can delete posts as well as members of your network. By the way, SocialGo is a free website.
