    Instead of Facebook a company has come up with a novel idea of a social network for pets and so far so good. The site is doing well and gaining in popularity.

    The purpose of the site is one where you can share your pictures and videos of your pets and also interact with other pet owners. The site is a blend between common sharing site Pinterest and social networking site Facebook.

    The site's name is My Social Petwork and allows you to create an account for yourself and then add all the pets you own.

    Additionaly on the site are charities and pet businesses that will be able to interact with users. It is thought that they wil be directly able to communicate with pet owners and will be able to share important news and offer exclusive deals.

    The UK has over 16 million pets so it has a huge potential to become a massive website.

    Features:

    • You are able to follow other pets or pet owners to find out the latest details of what they have done. This can be useful to find out the progress of pets. You can also like and comment on the updates and photos.

    • You can also send private messages to other users to ask any questions that you want to know.

    • The more popular your pet, the higher it goes on the homepage where it can be spotted by thousands of users.

     

    A spokes person for the site, Catriona Golde, said that “"My Social Petwork is the UK's first social networking site to give pet owners of all breeds and species the chance to come together in one place to share their pictures, videos and updates and make friends with other like-minded pet owners,"
