The Social Sites Are Coming

As "user-generated content" becomes more of a mainstream phenomenon, and not just the realm of high school or college students with too much time on their hands, new categories of "social networking" sites are emerging.

It's challenging to characterize them all in a coherent way because they address different needs and differing use cases. But in what I casually called the "social scrapbooking" category, OurStory is making the rounds this week. Here's SiliconBeat's write up today, with additional mentions of some related sites (SnapJot, Tabblo).

I've got a briefing on Thursday with OurStory and I'll have some more thoughtful things to say then (one would hope :)). I blogged earlier about OurStory and about the "mainstreaming of Web2.0."

I'm just amazed at how fast this entire sector/segment (whateveryouwannacallit) is moving.
