Robin Good: Mightybell is a new web service which allows you to create a public, collaborative social space around your selected topic.
A mix between Pinterest, Facebook and Tumblr, Mightybell makes it very easy to set-up a web group in which you and selected others can contribute to discuss a topic, event or issue.
"...a place to create groups with friends around what interests you."
From the ScoolLibraryJournal blog: "It is not a replacement for Ning. It’s not as high powered, but like what Tumblr did for blogging–namely making it central, specific and simplified relative to the earlier blog software–I wanted to do the same thing for how people create social networks and groups. To pull it together with simple core functions. To make it visually beautiful. To make sharing easy, while respecting privacy. It’s not going to be as high powered."
"Networks are built on threaded discussions, comments, photos, questions, videos, links, files, events, and more.
The platform allows for the creation of both invitation-only private spaces and public spaces. Live chat scrolls down the left frame of a space. Boxes in the center area of the screen display the contributed space elements–links, files, videos, photos, questions, etc.–and invite conversation.
Users may explore Mightybell as hosts, contributors, or participants. Hosts can change themes and appearance of the space. Contributors can add content."
