Lady Gaga To Launch Her Own Social Networking Site ''LITTLE MONSTERS''
Lady Gaga is already the queen of social
media, almost 25 million Twitter followers.
So it just goes to reason that once she's
conquered that medium she would go on
to create her own social networking site.
Little Monsters, a site built around Gaga's
fanbase, is in invite-only beta testing
mode right now.
According to Mashable, an early look at the
site shows some similarity to the popular
Pinterest mobile app that allows users to
drop pins on locations and things they like.
It also uses elements of the Reddit site by
allowing fans to rate cool content that they
like. Little Monsters will focus on fans
sharing and creating photos and videos
and allowing users to hype content that
they are into. The site is the first one
launched by Backplane, a tech startup co-
founded by Gaga's manager, Troy Carter.
"Backplane is about bringing together
communities and Gaga's community just
so happens to be the community we're
using to learn about proper functionality,"
CEO Matt Michelsen said about the
company that will focus on building online
communities. "We think we can really
change the world."
Backplane is partially funded by Gaga and
the company plans to launch Little
Monsters out of beta at an undetermined
time and spin off more sites this year. It
hopes to leverage Gaga's massive online
following to draw users to the new sites.
To date, in addition to her massive Twitter
base, Gaga has 330,000 followers on
Google+, more than 50 million Facebook
fans and more than one billion views on
