The Consumer Social Network

I've grown tired of social networks ever since I started working. I don't know, I guess Friendster, MySpace and Facebook just lost its appeal. However, I've stumbled upon a new social network that might just renew my interst on social networks:

Acobay is a consumer network and promises a different kind of social networking. Instead of trying to brag about who you're connected with, you're showing off the stuff you own.

Yep, you read it right. This is the social network for braggarts. If you're the kind of person who likes showing off their gadgets (laptops or mobile phones) in coffee shops then this is the place where you can show off. And I'm not only talking about stuff, you can also share the places you've been to.

I guess I can see the positive side of this social network. Not all of us know the inner workings of our gadgets so this site can be useful in connecting with other people who owns the same thing and who might just know enough stuff about the product to share with you.

Well whatever you might find Acobay useful for, this is definitely a social network that's different from others.
