Have you heard the Buzz about cre8buzz.com? It’s a social networking/community site launched on October 6, 2007 and is quickly establishing itself as the place to make new friends, socialize and network. I initially thought that cre8buzz.com was just for bloggers seeking to promote their blogs, but there are musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, moms and dads, and presently 25 categories such as beauty, education, electronics, health and fitness, motorcycles, sports, and science. Simply create a profile, customize the look and feel with MySpace-like layouts (if you want to), add photographs, create a video gallery, podcasts, blog posts, various widgets, and more. And I’ve got Invitations to give away!
Do I like it?
Absolutely! I am truly enjoying meeting others on the site and making new friends. I’ve especially enjoyed finding many fabulous blogs that I might not have found elsewhere to visit, comment on and subscribe to. Of course, its also brought a very nice boost of traffic to my own blog, and my comments and subscriber numbers have increased.
The Antman has done an excellent job with cre8buzz, and is very prompt to reply to any questions, suggestions or concerns. The site is very well structured and well designed, and most importantly (at least to me) is that the members I’ve “met” have been very kind. I have not found any profile or conversations taking place that would raise red flags for me.
One of the perks I’m starting to make better use of is the ability to add members to my address book, allowing me to communicate more privately with members, rather than just through open comment sections. Having these private conversations with other bloggers allows me to build a larger and personalized niche network, increasing opportunities of inbound and outbound links.
What Don’t I Like?
I would like to be able to choose more than one group to belong to rather than just one. With my invitation from Dane Morgan, I chose the Mom group (since I’m a mom of six), but I’m also a Woman and would like to belong to more than one group. Currently you can change which group you belong to but your content belongs to just that one group.
Does It Work?
Many members seem to feel it does. I would have to say that participation is paramount. You cannot expect to create a profile, add various customizations to your page, and simply let it sit unattended expecting to receive attention. Remember, you have to give to get.
Ready To Jump In The Ant Pile?
I have 15 invitations to give away, and if I need more I’m sure the Antman will be happy to oblige. Shoot me an email with the subject line being “Invite Me”, and be sure to provide the email you want used for the invitation. I solemnly swear that I will not use your email for any purpose other than to provide you the invitation to cre8buzz.
Ready? Set! GO!
