8 odd social networks that cover life's strange niches

Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram are great and all, but they can be broad.

For those who want more specific communities to cater to their odd tastes, a bunch of social networks exist that are designed to be more accessible to those who those who march to the beat of their own drum.

And important note: not all of these are open yet, or still open in the case of some super-niche entries.

1. Discuss cars with the Top Gear stars
Designed for fans of both the late-but-popular Top Gear show and fans of cars in general (not that there isn't a huge overlap there), the upcoming social network DriveTribe is a personal project of stars Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.

While information is limited since it's not ready yet, Clarkson and company have confirmed that  users will be able to join a "tribe" led by one of the three stars. It's currently slated to open up in autumn of this year, around the premiere of the trio's new show, The Grand Tour.

2. Show off what books you're reading
It may feel strange listing "books" as a niche interest, but in the age of Netflix and the internet, they sort of are.

The most prominent book-related social network is GoodReads, which besides offering tons and tons of book reviews, helps users find new book recommendations based on which ones they've read (which here, also means books they've checked off on the site).

3. A social network for just food pictures
Without question, food pictures are the cornerstone of the modern photo-sharing site (yes, we mean Instagram). A self-described "Photo journal for all things food," the Yummi app allows you to post photos of any and all the food you want, without fear of judgement.

But this is mostly just a food photo journal. If you wanted actual recipe sharing, there's BakeSpace, which has a more established user base.

4. Connect with people on your airplane
If you ever found yourself on an airplane and thinking to yourself, "I really want to talk to other people currently on airplanes," Virgin America airlines briefly had the answer.

Using the business networking app Here on Biz, airplane passengers would get enough free wifi to chat not only with other passengers, but with other fliers on Virgin America flights and even the pleasant and excited folks at the airport. Of which there are definitely tons.

It only seemed to last a few months until July 2014. Virgin America hasn't spoke much of it since, perhaps because airplanes and airports are eternally full of grouches.

5. Talk about being super-rich with super-rich people
Back in 2014, composer and rich person James Touchi-Peters decided that his social media was being cluttered with too many members of the common rabble. And so he created his own, with a $9000 entry fee and a $3000 yearly subscription to keep said rabble from his digital country club.

Called The Netropolitan Club, it had a brief run before shutting down due to a lack of membership. Apparently, most millionaires and billionaires are perfectly fine with Twitter. Elon Musk certainly is.

Sure feels weird to find myself defending the robots

6. Take quizzes while you socially network
While quiz-taking app QuizUp has been around for awhile, last year the app completed a gradual transition into a social networking app where you can also take tons of quizzes.

Because QuizUp now contains user searches, comment sections, photo sharing and all the other facets of a standard social network. The app also works to connect you with people who take quizzes about the same topics, allowing you to finally bond with other Walking Dead trivia masters.

7. Attempt to make digital money by commenting
If you've been concerned that you're not making any money by tweeting, the creators of Steemit had the same worries. And so the money-making social network was born.

Styled mostly after sites like Reddit, Steemit allows you to obtain small amounts of "Steem" currency by posting popular threads, or writing out top-rated comments. Your digital money can then be turned into more digital money, because Steem has a conversion service into Bitcoin.

8. Walk around and catch Pokémon
Yeah, yeah, of course you've heard about Pokémon Go, and it doesn't market itself as a social network. But it helps you interact with people by going outside, lets you lead gyms that other users can battle against, and has led to tons of events and gatherings.

Basically, it's doing social networking better than actual social networks, and even businesses are using it to advertise to users (the real point of social media).
