If you thought you’ve heard enough about Lady Gaga, well think again because soon you might be friend requesting on her new social website. But could this spell the end of Facebook and Twitter as we know it?
The pop princess who is already the reigning queen of Twitter, with her nearly 19 million followers recently announced she’s launching a site of her own especially for her “Monsters” (fans).
The website called, Little Monsters, is the pop princess’s effort at creating a network built around her fan base. An early look at the site suggests it will be designed a lot like Pinterest, the fast-emerging mobile app that lets users “pin” locations and items that they like.
Gaga’s site also will emphasize sharing and creating photos and videos, as well as letting other users promote content from others that they like (something similar to sites like Reddit and Digg)..
Gaga has a massive social-media presence she was the first artist to hit 1 billion YouTube video views, but it remains an open question whether a social site devoted almost exclusively to her fans will have a big enough user base to fly.
