Social Networking for Kids

Forget about the battle of Facebook and mySpace. The next battle is for your kids, and is going to be fought between Club Penguin & Moshi Monster.

Moshi Monster lets you create and adopt a monster, then nurture it, and then interact with other people's monsters, and even play games. Think of it as a cross between Second Life and Tamagotchi.

Club Penguin was bought by Disney for an obscene amount of money a while back, when the entertainment giant decided it needed to be in the social network arena. It works much like Habbo Hotel, with you personalising a penguin, which you can then talk through with other penguins!

Intersting times afoot.
