Ne Plus Ultra of Social Networking

Heather Green

So I got an email the other day alerting me to a new social networking site called HINCity. It's tied to Hot Import Nights, which is billed as the nation?? largest lifestyle custom car show. (Who knew? Not me, ok?)

Apparently this was a niche community on MySpace that has expanded into its own social networking site. Has anyone heard of anything similar? It's pretty fascinating, the idea of mini networking sites spinning themselves off. And it really gets at the nichiness that we're seeing evolve in every nook and cranny of the Web, it appears. Or maybe it's more of a testament to the size of the MySpace site. Anything that's built out of it is bound to look nichy, right?

A similar site is the new Warped Tour site that has a mashup of Google maps and tour information combined with social networking. Very niche and interesting.
