Although Facebook is the largest social network on the internet, it is not the only game in town. Several social network sites exist because they appeal to a specific market or functionality. One cool mini-social network is Phile, a service that allows users to create a group website and share staff the group cares about.
Phile’s main hook to users is that it allows them to contribute and discover facts on topics that users are very interested in. It then aggregates these contributions together so that people can share knowledge in one place.
Once you are signed up and logged in, you can join a group or create your own group. Creating your own group essentially give you access to your own custom website within Phile. You can then organize your content structure through knowledge stacks. Each stack contains a set of pages about a central topic, where you can add and update them as needed. As your group grows, they can also contribute to each stack with automated tools.
Phile is a social network, a wiki, forum, and a knowledgebase. This is definitely useful for people who are driven with their interests and need an avenue to share them online.
