YPulse points to yet another social networking site, gasp…. for Beautiful People. Beautiful People got itself coverage in USA Today. Don’t bother visiting the site with any of these browsers – Safari, Camino and Firefox – i.e., the browsers of choice for the smart set. Message: BeautifulPeople.net is only supported by Internet Explorer. What’s that stereotype about beautiful and dumb?

> The criteria are shamelessly superficial: a recent photograph (bikinis and bare biceps encouraged) and body statistics. Is your six-pack more of a two-pack? The site also accepts “people with personal/professional qualities that stand out from the majority” — like “Sandhill,” an entrepreneur with a goofy grin who says his income is $1 million-plus. (USA Today)

And to counteract the utter dumbness, O’Reilly people have launched their own geek-oriented social network, Connection. Tony Perkins and Marc Canter are doing GoingOn, a meta-SN, while others have decided that $580 million is not too much for a music-hook-up oriented social network. Clearly, we are in middle of a social network mania.

    What kind of world do we live in where you can make $1M+ and need to use the Internet to get laid? What would P Diddy think?

  8. Here is a very controversial site that’s seems to discriminates against some people quite well. I contacted the administrator and he said they had threats concerning the site.
    Anyway, Thought you may find it interesting.
