SMALL, SMALLER SOCIAL NET WORKS


The average Facebook user in United States has 245 friends.

That requires constantly monitoring what should — and should not — be shared with whom.  All of this has created an opportunity for start-ups to offer sharing that is intimate by design.

Newer social networks, like Path, FamilyLeaf and Pair, offer a range of constraints. A Path network, available only on smartphones, has a maximum of 150 friends. FamilyLeaf is restricted to family members. And Pair, which like Path is for smartphones only, is as small as a social network can be for just one other person.
