(PRWeb UK) November 29, 2010
It is almost impossible to go anywhere or talk to anyone these days who is not involved in a social network of some sort. Blasts from the past, childhood buddies, work colleagues, boyfriends and best friends alike all make up our own bespoke online communities. However, until now, it has been very challenging to find a way (outside of the dating arena) to branch out and connect with new people who share our interests.
The web has erupted with waves of UK internet users, all flooding to a new and highly anticipated Social Network. Bloggers recount that the site, bongal, fills the ultimate gaping void in the social networking showground.
The co-founder of the site, Rory Marshall said “I strongly feel that bongal will be huge as it is firmly planting its feet in an untapped niche by connecting users based on their interests and locations rather than just their existing friendship circles. When you work, study or relocate, it can be difficult to meet likeminded people to discuss your interests and hobbies in both the real world and online.” When asked about the future of bongal, Marshall added “being a new site we are able to quickly react to user requests and adjust as the site gathers momentum, especially during the initial stages”.
The site had been developed by Marshall and his agency Rippleffect. It has now been live for a few months and is already approaching 20k members. Further to the popularity of ‘The Social Network’ movie in theatres across the globe, the story of this innovative venture is sure to cause a stir.
