Reporting To You

tech The Best Social Network

BuzzFeed's proud to announce our own social network: nthng. By not joining nthng, you can not share photos with your friends, not keep in touch via non-status updates, and not comment on what people in your network are up to. When your life is full of social networks, nothing is better than something. (Brought to you by National Unfriend Day.)

  • Introducing: Nothing

    Imagine instantly being able to not tell your friends what you're up to. A social network that let's you do what you're already doing on other social networks: Nothing.

  • How Does It Work?

    Simple: It doesn't. Just go to and don't sign up, or don't download our app from the iTunes (TM) App (TM) Store (TM).

  • No matter what you do, you're already a part of the Nothing Network, because there's nothing there. We've already not uploaded your contacts, and we aren't tracking your social graph.

  • Currently, nthng only works on the iPhone 3G.

  • Features:

  • Don't Check In

    Because no one cares where you are, we make it easy to not check-in. The more you don't check-in at your favorite local restaurants, bars and chain coffee stores, you won't receive badges and discounts.

  • Non-status

    Don't let everyone know what you're doing, and they won't comment on what you share. Perfect for those moments in life that you don't want to share with anyone, for any reason.

  • And beyond...

    Those are just two of the biggest features we haven't included in nthng. Others won't include:

  • -- Not pokes.

  • -- Non-groups.

  • -- Non-tagging.

  • -- Questions for no one.

  • -- Non real-time collaboration on spreadsheets.
