GayGirlNet , sometimes called “Lesbian Facebook,” has just reached 150,000 gay girl members, a milestone in the platform's history. The social network, purely for gay girls, was initially set up as a safe and free place for gay women to share stories, find dates and chat to other lesbians. From humble beginnings, the site has grown into a real success story and proves that there is a strong market for a lesbian community online.
The site which welcomes both gay and bi women brings together girls from all over the world. Not only is it a social network, but it is also a dating site where gay girls can meet other gay girls and find romance. The owners of the network claim that there is a genuine community feel to the operation. There are no pushy sales tactics: just an organic community of like-minded women who want to meet people just like them. At present, more than 1,000 new girls sign up to the site every week, thanks to features like instant messenger, inbuilt camera and audio chat, lesbian forums of all variety, events, polls, groups and much, much more. In short, GayGirlNet offers all the richness of service like Facebook, but with a niche appeal.
Polls are an interesting feature of the site. Here, users are able to upload multiple choice survey questions to the rest of the network’s community. Other members then click on the answers to reveal how everybody else responded. These polls have proven a useful way for dozens of members of the community to have some of their most pressing questions answered.
There is also a forum which hosts conversations on issues relating to being a gay girl, as well as many other topics. Posters talk about their "coming out" stories, their love life, events organised by the social network and relationship issues. In addition to issues of love and romance, there are also opportunities to discuss everything from the environment and conservation to films, health and well-being, music and even computer technology.
Members of the site can browse photo albums of other girls and get in contact using the in-site tools. The owners of the network hope that these facilities will enable girls to get in touch with other girls and find their other half. Using location-based services, the website helps women find other lesbian women in their local area, as well as around the world. With so many features built into the site, such as video cam and audio chat, getting in contact with through the platform is relatively straightforward.
With the more general acceptance of gay men and women in the popular culture, the rise of GayGirlNet is to be expected. The site, which has been able to carve a niche for itself in a growing segment, will undoubtedly enjoy further growth in the future. With more than 1,000 new members every week, the network has reached a tipping point.
