Throwback Thursday: Sconex

Remember Sconex? Before Myspace and Facebook, Sconex was the site to be in. It was a social networking site and directory for students in high school. In order to join you had to register with the school you were from and answer questions about the school you attended. (Such as who was the gym teacher etc.)  You were also able to connect with friends from school and make friends with students from other high schools. Come to think of it, Sconex had similar features to Facebook, you were able to post a personal profile, photos and notes, make and take quizzes, form and join groups, have little school contests where other students from your school would vote who was best dressed, class clown, and so forth. There was also a “crush” button, where you were able to add people as crushes to see if they like you or not (kind of similar to the annoying poking button on Facebook).

I have tried searching to see whatever happened to Sconex but no one really knows the “real reason” behind the Sconex shutdown but my best guess was that it closed down because of competition with other social networking sites that were becoming popular at that moment. Everyone moved to the “next best thing” and as a result Sconex probably lost a great deal of money.

In fact, if you type http://www.sconex.com it directs you to http://www.teen.com, perhaps Teen bought the site from Sconex.
