Making people and ideas findable at Smaller IndianaNing Network Spotlight
Smaller Indiana is a social network for people in Indiana to meet and share ideas. The social network prides itself on making “creative people and innovative ideas easier to find. This is the place for you to share your ideas and engage with Indiana’s most creative and inspired souls…working together to build community, culture and commerce.” Created nearly 2 years ago by Pat Coyle, it’s grown to over 6000 members. Members meet up around events like a Farmers Market, happening today, and Cow Appreciation Day, scheduled for next Friday. On the forum, Pat has created several categories of discussions to encourage conversations including one for “Blatant Self Promotion,” which already has 302 threads.
Within the Groups feature, professionals meet to discuss web development, Social Media Marketing and filmmaking in Indiana. Food is also a popular theme in groups where members quest for the best burger around, discuss buying local food, or search for great hole in the wall restaurants.
