Stupid Social Network | February 17, 2008

There was a bit of a meme going round the Britpack mailing list last week, with people coming up with names for fictional social networks. Below are a few of my favourites, although please be aware that none of them are my idea and several are just plain WRONG! PC people or those with a sensitive disposition, look away now.

Feel free to share your own ideas for a great new social networking site.

Had me laughing, good one Andy.

The sad thing is, by the end of the week, no doubt most of those domains will be registered.

“Shittr” was also proposed as a possible name for a site that had geolocations and reviews for public toilets/bathrooms/WCs. This was just before MizPee debuted— we knew it was too good an idea to not happen.

What’s so wrong with the letter ‘e’?
