Bangalore: It’s true! Facebook and Twitter are the social media monopolies.  But today, startling social networks are coming up faster than ever, exploring new avenues where people like to share and interact with each other to gain opinions and get feedback, be it a new bike purchase or a tattoo! And you can even send an image across to all the people in the room with a Robotic Chirp!



Here is a look at 8 among them, to watch in 2013.



#8 Thumb:



Caters To: The ‘Confused’ People



Thumb is a mobile app that helps its users gain the opinions of others. In September 2012, it reported more than 1.2 million users. With the highly active user base of Thumb, people can get varied opinions on various aspects of their lives, what is the best car to buy right now? Which new tattoo to get? Should I dump my boyfriend? Answers to all this and more will be found by throwing questions out to the world, which is more than ready to answer it.



#7 Pheed:



For the “Business minded”



Pheed is a forum where you can sell your images, videos, thoughts and everything else but yourself, at a subscription rate. This is a site for celebrities and their ardent fans and followers exclusively. Here celebrities can post what they did the entire day and earn a sum for doing it. The philosophy behind the idea is why ‘share’ something for free when you can sell them? Stars like Miley Cyrus and Paris Hilton are already members.
