Confide in me
But what about a network build around a person?
I've been reading reports that Kylie Minogue (of the music charts, Neighbours and Dr. Who) is setting up her own social network called Kylie Konnect.
Now I don't know how well it will work out for anyone, but I can see the appeal.
You have a fan club where all the fans can talk to each other. Pick up the opinions of the fans and sell the music directly to them thus by-passing the record label (if you want to, this site is being run by EMI). Inspired or a silly idea. Add to the mix that it's a dot mobi, which means it might be a source of ring-tones and other gphone-ish goodness. Or use an Open Social API so that they can leverage the fans in other networks, from their own hub here.
At least that's what I think is the idea. If its just to replicate another social network, then its going to quickly have digital tumble weeds on it's site.
