The trend in the Internet business is mergers and acquisitions, where the smaller players get gobbled up and consolidated into the big companies, like Google and Yahoo. The world of social networking sites is the exception these days, where more and more sites are popping up to serve specialized communities.
A perfect example, and relevant in our case, is Me And My Bicycle, the social network for cyclists. They promote themselves as the place to "Show off your wheels, find like minded cyclists and join in discussions about all things cycling related."

What do you think? Will you join a site like this, even if you would not have considered joining one of the more established social networking sites like FaceBook or MySpace?
