Facebook has taken the world of social networking by storm and managed to rake in huge bucks. Recognizing the tremendous success, other entrepreneurs set out to launch similar platforms, though none have been able to capture as big a fan following as Facebook.

A few international knock-offs include:
VivaPets.com – Facebook for your pets from Proto, Portugal

BabyTree.com – Facebook for babies from Beijing, China. The site is aimed at parents of newborns and toddlers; a good way to show off your photos without subjecting people to hours and hours of you gushing over your little one. The social networking tools let you meet other parents in your area to start building connections for future playmates.

International Facebook-like sites:
SkyRock (France)
StudiVZ (Germany)
Minglebox (India)
Vostu (Mexico)
Hyves (Netherlands)
V Kontakte (Russia)
Qiraz (Turkey)
Mekusharim (Israel)
