9) Headliner FM allows musicians to connect and support each other in the hopes of turning their online fans into real-life groupies.

7) Facebook may have a stronghold over the United States, but in some countries, like Brazil, sites like Orkut have the edge...

6) Togetherville is just as addictive as Farmville for young children. This supervised social networking site allows kids to stay in touch with loved ones and interact with people their own age online safely.

5) The Make the Difference Network serves as a liaison between your idle goodwill and charitable organizations looking to put it to good use. You can change someone's life just by clicking on the “Find Your Wish," button.

4) Sprouter is like Twitter, but it caters to entrepreneurs. Share, collaborate and lend or receive a helping hand by joining this revolutionary business social media site.

3) '1000Memories' is a virtual community that celebrates the lives of lost loved ones. Deceased family members or friends can have their own virtual memorial and resting place.

1) 'Alikewise' lets others embrace you inner bookworm. The site aims to play matchmaker based on the literature you love. Does the Harry Potter series count?
