Its perhaps a tad too generic for the niche.. I dont know of any social networks that actual brand on a socialnetwork domain. Not hip enough for the hipsters you know

To me this is a niche that is a total waste of time to try and get into. It's like trying to start a search engine now. I wouldn't attempt to develop it - I would look to resell it.

Hi

i'm in agreement with @Castion

it's too generic for branding, because social network is not a product or service.
still, it's great name to describe what a sn is/are, the various social networks out there and what their niche' is

you could also provide insight on startups in that category, which may help with advertising.

if the domain has some typein traffic, that could help kick it off.


Good Luck!


imo...

I really wish it was socialmedia.co.uk, that could be an easier sell. No-one these days wants to create a social network (unless they are crazy) and you're right they would not want a generic. It feels a bit of a vanity domain, but then question is how to actually sell that.

I don't think it's a bad name. If I had it I would pay renewal fees and wait for an offer. In fact wasn't this caught with my software? :p *edit* no that was the plural

What software was this? It was caught a long time ago.

How long ago? I got this about 12 years ago. I used to do my own catching and "whored" myself to any catching out there to collect names that I was after to get more slots.

Not that long ago. Think I started the public system around 2012. Lots of people using it now - competition has massively increased. I used to catch myself though from the automaton back from 2003. In those days there was lots to get and made a lot of money from them :)
