My Gaga Conclusion
The Little Monsters social network is a fun, comprehensive tool that combines Twitter and Facebook integration. In addition it provides chatroom functionality along with that cool Pinterest look. I can’t wait to see how this platform develops because it provides an enhanced social integration I haven’t yet seen in the social space.
