The Anti-Social Social Network

Just yesterday I launched a new Facebook Group called The Anti-Social Social Network to celebrate the irony of the fact that most of the people I know who work in Social Networking tend to view themselves as fairly anti-social.

Then today, I saw this article about a flash mob storming a train station in London. It made me conclude that flash mobs are really an expression of the same concept. You can’t get more of an anti-social social network than 4,000 people showing up for the same event, at the same time, only to dance to their own personal iPod soundtrack in what appears to be complete silence to everyone around them.

Unfortunately, is taken. Otherwise I would build it out as the most anti-social web 2.0 site I could possibly create.
