4 Good Reasons To Have Your Own Social Network

Why should you create your own social network if everybody’s already on Facebook?

Better Engagement

Instead of sending your visitors away from your site and on to Facebook, your own social network will keep them on your pages. You’ll be able to engage with them, learn their needs and gather their opinions about your product, service or brand.

Closer Focus

As Facebook users follow more pages and make more friends, their news feeds become more noisy and less relevant. Eventually, they can be overwhelmed with content of marginal interest that blocks out the information they actually want to see. On your niche social network, your visitors will be able to interact with like-minded individuals around one topic that genuinely interests them.

Higher Profits

Mark Zuckerberg is rich enough. He really doesn’t need to collect more cash from your visitors. He doesn’t even know where to put it. You can help him by letting your users pay you. Instead of clicking on Facebook’s ads and making Mark Zuckerberg richer, they can click on your ads, buy your products, share your content and make you richer. Mark will thank you for it.

Secure Privacy

Facebook’s privacy practices are opaque, grim and difficult to manage. Your own social network keeps all your users’ data on your site and under your control. You can set the privacy levels the way you want, giving your members peace of mind.

I’m a Digital Nomad currently living in Manila, The Philippines. Co-Founder and CEO of PeepSo.com. First time WordCamp Speaker at WordCamp Kuala Lumpur 2017, WordCamp Singapore 2019 and hoping to speak more soon. I started my journey with open source nearly a decade ago as a simple support guy. Joomla! was my first encounter with the world of Open Source. After that period of my life got phased out I fell in love with WordPress and never left. I have been both lucky and at the same time I worked my ass off to get to where I am right now. Free time, if I have any, is usually spent with my wife and / or travel around South-East Asia. Even when I’m supposed to be on a little vacation, not a day goes by when I don’t check up on PeepSo. So far visited or lived in: Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hungary, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, Japan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Norway, Germany, Scotland, England and more… Whenever possible, I jump on my Ducati Monster and just ride.
