Battelle likes the new concept and I have to admit that by combining the best features of other popular sites, Fanpop has a great chance of standing-out in a crowded social networking space.
Here’s how Fanpop describes itself…
Fanpop is a network of “social portals” called spots that are created for fans by fans. Share your favorite links and meet fellow fanatics. Find out what other fans are surfing on the web with “social browsing”.
Fanpop obviously knows it still needs the help of the reigning social bookmarking champs in order to become popular – each page has a “bookmark on del.icio.us” link!
