– College Social Network

Pyuple is a college-based online community that allows students, faculty, staff and alumni to network, communicate and collaborate with one another. Each member gets a customizable profile modeled after MySpace’s profile layout and each school gets a customizable site called a “Pyuple Space” which serves as the school’s online community.

Students can also create customizable groups which are linked to their school’s Pyuple Space.

Why It Might Be A Killer

Facebook no longer caters exclusively to college students. Pyuple serves the college student market by picking up where Facebook left off and more. Pyuple also offers teachers a free, online course management system which other companies like Blackboard charge hundreds of thousands of dollars for. Pyuple’s Group feature allows students to create more customizable groups compared to Yahoo Groups.
