Nexopia is a social networking website and is designed as a general interactive site for people aged 14 and up (accounts with users that are proven to be under 14 are deleted). Users are able to create and design their own profiles, friends list, blogs, galleries, articles, and forums. Interaction is accomplished through an internal personal messaging system, and public user comments on profiles, blogs or through threads and posts on the forums. Nexopia.com is a Canadian website and based in downtown Edmonton.
This is a non-trivial community. They claim to currently have 988,698 users (or, at least, created accounts). That’s a lot of Canadian teenagers.
I see that they encourage profile pages that are just as ugly as MySpace as well. Of course, such services prove that design doesn’t matter quite as much as we’d like it to.
