Yahoo! has launched KickStart, a “professional” social network aimed at college students and alumni. From first impressions, it appears to be a LinkedIn for students. The quote on the front page sums it up nicely:
Uncle Ron may work for IBM, but it doesn’t mean you want him writing on your wall or poking your friends.
Curse you uncle Ron with your incessant friend-poking!
Sexy pop midget Kylie has jumped on the social networking bandwagon too with the launch of kyliekonnect. I’ve forwarded the link to uncle Ron, who has assured me she’s in for a vigorous poking as soon as his account has been authorised.
