Scapehouse a social sharing site that is a cross between Faceboook and Twitter

18 Jul, 2011

Scapehouse is a new social media site that might a little bet late to the Google+ game. the startup comes with a new vision for online discussion,

On facebook people share stuff with their friends only, on Twitter the game is different, people share with their followers who do not have to be their friends.

Scapehouse brings both: users can share stuff with their friends only or with friends and followers, something that is close to the idea of Google+ main feature: circles. The site brings full news feed page, where users activities of commenting or liking an update is visible.

Unlike Twitter, updating a post is not limited to 140 characters, and users can comment on each update in a chronicle order and can like or dislike it. Resharing an update is also available on Scapehouse and can be shared with friends only or with both friends and followers, with the option to add comment of the shared content.

Abdullah Khan cofounder of site who is the from Karachi Pakistan and currently lives in UAE told AC that they have been working on the site 6 months now and have launched in beta around 2 months ago, before Google+. ( the other cofounder is Ali Razzouk : From Aleppo Syria, Living in Dubai UAE.)

Now that Google+ has gained 10 million users in 2 weeks since its launch, Scapehouse has a challenging time to compete, But it was a nice idea nevertheless. Would you use it?

    It’s a really neat site! I my self have been on it for quite some time now and find it far more welcoming than other networks of this category.

    Its a nice interface, good job, but I think its doomed to fail. You are directly competing against Google + and there is no way people would create and use accounts on both; Google’s brand equity is just too overwhelming. I can imagine that if people wanted to create an account in addition to their Facebook account, they would go for Google +. A case of great product, terrible timing….
