Gravity is a website that wants to help its users discover new, cool people online. Based on the idea that most people who become friends on typical social networking sites already knew each other in real life before connecting on the web, Gravity is an application that works in an exact opposite way—by connecting users with people they should know, but have never actually met before in person.
Rather than focusing on people and networks of friends, the Gravity social network is focused on topics of interest that users have in common. To get started, just type in three of your favorite interests and watch as a listing of related groups pops up right away. Within these “worlds,” the Gravity lingo for topics-based groups, are countless conversations that users can comment on and follow. Users can also post pictures and videos related to any topic, connect with other users whose opinions they share, and earn badges for reaching certain posting milestones.
Because so many interests and opinions are represented on Gravity’s comprehensive site, there’s no doubt that anyone who signs up will find kinship with a new group of likeminded friends. For anyone who is more interesting in meeting new people online than reconnecting with the friends they’ve already got, Gravity is an interesting new social network to try out.
