The Canoeist: For the Adventurous PaddlerNing Network Spotlight
The Canoeist is a social network for canoe enthusiasts. Members have come together to discuss longest paddling trips, packing tips, favorite camp meals and the merits of biodegradable soap. They also share their photos of moose sightings, campsites, and awesome action shots. The Canoeist is currently prepping for Canoecopia 2009, the world’s largest paddlesport expo, taking place next weekend in Madison, Wisconsin.
Just like the Tricycle Community’s social network, which we just wrote about, The Canoeist has taken advantage of the ability to add your own custom default avatar to further brand their social network. New members who choose not to upload a profile photo will get the social network’s logo, a paddler in shades of green, as their profile photo.
