Naija Naija Naija

Naija Social Networking Sites

Happy Easter in Arrears people. One of the things I'm focusing on in this post is our Naija versions of facebook.

I don't know if any of you remember the
post I had on Naija5? As the name states, it is Nigeria's version of Hi5 - or, well, supposed to be.

As I pondered over this url for a minute, I thought whether they had an actual version of facebook i.e. Nigbook. I typed the url very slowly into my address bar - hoping, praying that this was not the case. I almost jumped for joy when I got this back -
Nigbook result.

Sheesh must there be Nig everything? Nigbay (as in Ebay), Nig this, Nig that....

Anyway back to the social networking sites, I have recently discovered the following:


Central Station NG - Celtel's own version of facebook (dont ask!) but like every other money making sensible business, they've added a few extras like downloading music and ringtones, winning free tickets, etc.

Legwork.com.ng - Another meeting place for Nigerians (looks more like a shopping/dating/forum site) is expanding fast and was started by a young entrepreneur.



naNaija - An interesting one, I think its brand new, worth checking out.



Speaking of Facebook, a major vulnerability in the Facebook web security caused pictures of Paris Hilton to be leaked as well as private pictures posted by Mark Zuckerberg (Fbk creater) - more on the story here.

I think the naija networking sites are a good idea. Although, there should be only one good one, instead of so many sites. As it is, I can hardly keep up with facebook.

Whether you can have the herbal Viagra online . Some people claim that since herbal cheap Viagra alter the hormonal balance of the body, they are potentially harmful. This is true indeed if the herbal Buy Cialis are taken for a long time.
