Facebook, the world's biggest social network, is so vast that finding your brother-in-law's second cousin can sometimes be easier than finding people who share your particular interests. Enter niche social networks, where kindred spirits unite on such topics as anime, crochet and foreign films.
Obsessed with video games or the finale to Nurse Jackie? You guessed it, there's a social network for it.
GetGlue: Media geeks get together
With GetGlue, you don't check into physical localities. Instead, you check into your favourite movies, TV shows and more. Doing so enables your GetGlue friends to see what you're doing for entertainment right now instead of depending on you to log your interests as on a Facebook fan page. The kicker to this site is that checking in gives you access to discounts associated with your different interests, plus actual stickers related to your favourite shows and bands, so you can cover your stuff with them.
