For all the talk about Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook, it’s sometimes easy to forget about all the failed social media sites that simply fell by the waist side. This infographic looks at ten failed social media sites and breaks down the reasons for their failure.
Number one on the list is iTunes Ping. Usually, when Apple makes a go of something, they do it right and come out on top. However, iTunes Ping was not one of those times. It was meant to be a social network focused on sharing music, except you could only share 30 second clips of songs. And with it being so easy to share music on other social networks, iTunes Ping never took off.
Other failed social media sites listed include Google+, EONS and Orkut.
