new social network

New social networking site Zanda is launched is a new social networking site with a USP – a rating system that allows users to rate & review items & products, concerts & events, people & places, & more.

With this system, the guys who run Zanda hope to bring some “honest reviews” & ratings through multiple categories in order to help consumers & others to make better decisions about the things or services they plan to buy or the things they wanna do.

To use this new social networking site, you need to sign up & log in, which is Free. Users can review existing items or even add a new item for review. Users may also indicate if they own or have participated with the item, comment, compare similar items and create wishlists for items they want to experience. Members can follow one another, earn badges and make the top lists for being active in certain categories & keywords.

So what can one expect to find at Zanda? A quick glance shows one can read up on reviews of movies, products, people, events, & places, allowing users to find experiences & reviews from people across the globe. Essentially, the new social site allows people to connect with similar interests & discover new experiences based on the comments & insights from their friends.

By using its own unique rating system, Zanda says it also prevents corporations or brand advocates to hijack ratings to show dishonest scores. Zanda’s developers monitor the Site closely to deliver true opinions and scores from the community.

According to Toni Vlaic, CEO & Founder of Zanda, people trust their friends & family most when doing something new. Whether it’s buying a new car, looking for a good music venue or which vacation spot their friends prefer, Zanda has an answer. His social site, he says, is one location where you can get the opinion of your friends on just about anything.

While the website is on, Zanda developers are working on the iOS & Android versions, too.

videos that go viral online

Betting on which videos will go viral Online

First there was YouTube, then BetTube. Way back in March this year, What’s New On The Net had reported on the birth of a Site that allowed people to bet on which YouTube video would go viral.

We are now told that the Site has launched its beta version this Monday, Nov 25. Founder Clemens Lay told this website that BetTube had been redesigned from the ground up to be the place to watch & bet on upcoming videos before they go viral.

BetTube was founded in Munich, Germany by Clemens, who, prior to working on BetTube, had graduated from Oxford University with a PhD in Computer Science.

Here’s how BetTube works: Users can bet that a video will go viral within the next 12 hours. Each bet is a prediction of the future & BetTube aggregates these predictions into a chart of videos that are likely to go viral in the near future.

Online videos that go viralThe centerpiece of BetTube is the ‘YouTube’s Hottest New Videos’ chart. It shows all videos that BetTube bettors have bet on within the last day. The videos are ordered according to the number of views that a video has gotten in the past hour.

To make it easy to find upcoming videos, BetTube features data visualisations which allow users to spot trending videos early. In this way BetTube is not only for gamblers – its also great place to watch YouTube’s hottest new videos.

There’s even a “Golden Rule” to win on BetTube: Always bet on videos with a low view count that are awesome.

Currently BetTube allows gambling with play money, real money gambling will be enabled in the future, says Clemens. Users can sign up for free & start predicting right away.

Since BetTube launched it’s alpha version at the Lauch Festival in San Francisco in March 2013, users have placed tens of thousands of bets.
