There are so many ways to create social networks these days or to be part of a social network, that the question that is begging for an answer is WHY? Why would someone want to do this and what caused you to go down that path? Here's a couple of common reasons, but I'd love to hear your own story.
1) The first and obvious reason is to market a product,
2) The social aspect of meeting and talking with new people
3) Keep in contact with existing friends
4) Share important information with others
In my case, the answer was easy. Not long ago, the organization that employs me decided to have many of its' employees work from home. I am a social person, and missed the interaction with people every day. I opted to join MySpace to keep in touch with family and friends, but found that no one other than my family wanted talk to a grown woman.
So... I changed my page to OzSee ~ my wonderful miniature schnauzer! I had "friends" coming out of my ears. All of them expecting me to speak as my dog. There even was a lingo to learn like BOL (Bark Out Loud) instead of LOL (Laugh Out Loud). I was beginning to lose my identity in that of my cute pooch. As a result, Pet Lovers Paradise was born. I could get back to being me instead of OzSee, have a social life again, and share my love for my pets in one fell swoop. The wonderful thing is that I found out that I wasn't alone! There are multitudes of folks like me that love their animals beyond imagination and just want to shout it from the roof tops.
PLP is NOT a monetized site. This is strictly a labor of love, and we take advertising and spamming seriously so the decision to reach out for partner networks was a tough one, BUT, if you are marketing anything pet related, please visit our site and view the scroll at the very bottom of the page. We are looking for viable interests that those with pets would have so anything from dog collars to pet newsletters - dog biscuits to fido sweaters. If you have an item to offer and wish to partner, feel free to join the site and we can discuss how to exchange banners.
Better yet - if you are just a pet lover, and can't wait for an opportunity to chat about your pet, please join us and brag away! We'd love to have you.
We'll welcome you with open paws and promise not to slobber on ya too much.
