The blab in myblab stands for Be Linked As Believers. Interesting acronym there. Right away it looks and feels mostly like a Facebook knockoff. But I have to say – I appreciate that.
The biggest difference I see is that it is currently focused on music. I don’t know what is a bigger industry in the Christian world – music or books – but I would guess it is music by leaps and bounds.
Before you create an account – you need to decide if you are going to sign up as an individual or a music artist. I am not a music artist so I won’t be able to tell you anything of that side of things. However as a user – you are bombarded with music ‘stuff’ Just promoting the artists on the site really. no advertising of any kind – YET. I am sure that the business model must include the sale of ads on the site by bigger names.
Anyway – it is pretty easy to get around for the most part. It is laid out a little different then the king of social media site FB – but not too bad for sure.
They have all the basics of other social media sites: status updates, post videos & pics, birthdays, friends, apps, events, address books etc.
I really only fault it one thing – there is a great big link to login in to YouTube as their primary video host. If this is a Christian site – then should it not have tied itself more prominently to a Christian video service? Like GodTube for example?
Anyway – Overall it is a great little site. I don’t see it taking the world by storm just yet – but you just never know. I have an account now.
God Bless and Give with Passion!
