Alternative Social Networking Sites

'Unthink' Wants to Help Users Lose the Limitations

— August 27, 2011 — Pop Culture
The makers of the new online social networking site 'Unthink' want to help users shed the restrictions placed by other popular pages. While the site itself might not tell you much about how the new networking venture works, the company released a video explaining the concept and purpose behind the Facebook and Google+ alternative. Unthink's manifesto, posted on the site, reads, "We've been waiting for things to change. We are not waiting any more."

With a tagline like, "We are not another social network. We are a social revolution," Unthink is sure to start attracting a lot of curious online users, myself included. Operating in a similar style to the Google+ invites, interested parties can leave their email address for an invitation to start using Unthink once the site is fully launched.

I look forward to seeing how Unthink compares to Myspace, Facebook, and Google+. Let the "social revolution" begin!
