Going Beyond Facebook and MySpace

Loads of libraries try to create sections of their websites and portals that attract teens (especially public libraries) or have a significant portion of their user base who are teens (universities and colleges).
I think it’s interesting to review those sites that are currently attracting teen users. Obviously, whether I like these sites or not, there’s a lot to learn by reviewing them for what makes them interesting and sitcky. I am not advocating copying these sites but just learning from them.
Here’s some sites that are working for them:
Tagged.com
Bebo.com
MyYearbook.com
www.uthtv.com
www.omnik.com
www.absolutepunk.net
www.collegehumor.com
www.karmaloop.com
www.pandora.com
You can find out more about these sites in this article, Buzz Focus: Surf’s Up at These Hot Sites by Tina Wells, May 2006 issue of OMMM Magazine.
Maybe we can steal some good ideas here for our teen portals?
