Social.org domain name to be sold at auction
Social.Org is an extremely powerful name, combining the enormously popular 'social' keyword with the 'Org' extension that is commonly used by community/social sites like Wikipedia.org, Craigslist.org, WordPress.org, and Google's OpenSocial.org

Web developer Insecure.org is pleased to announce the upcoming sale of its prized domain name Social.org at a no-reserve auction hosted by NameJet.com from March 20 until March 23.

Insecure.org CTO Gordon Lyon, states that "Social.Org is an extremely powerful name, combining the enormously popular 'social' keyword with the 'Org' extension that is commonly used by community/social sites like Wikipedia.org, Craigslist.org, WordPress.org, and Google's OpenSocial.org. Companies that might be interested include social networking players like Facebook, Twitter, Google, Zynga, or LinkedIn; community/deal sites such as LivingSocial; dating sites; social media sites; or even a new, disruptive startup!"
