There is a blog post on compete.com’s blog about the top 25 social networks. As expected, Facebook is on top spot and Twitter has climbed to 3rd. What is interesting to me though is the fact that Ning is number 12. That validates Yonkly’s business model and direction and as Twitter’s popularity (and microblogs in general) grow, so will Yonkly.
Yonkly offers a white-label platform that enables anyone and everyone to create a twitter-clone/microblog network for anything. The same way Ning allows you to create a Facebook-clone/social network. Just like Ning, Yonkly offers a hosted solution that is fully customizable. For as little as 5 bucks a month, you have your own Twitter-clone that you don’t have to install, maintain or upgrade. It just works.
You can have your own look and feel (christtr.com).
You can have your own domain (isweat.com).
You can target any niche market (photographersjournal.com).
You can even run your own advertising if you want and make some money (writezoo.com).
You can create private networks for your company, team, group or anything.
You can integrate with Flickr, Picasa and Twitter (more integration points coming soon).
There are ton more features, check out the tour over here.
It is very possible that one day Yonkly will be in the top 25 list. In the meantime, why don’t you go create a free account and try it out at yonkly.com
