Some fairly small social media sites are growing in popularity, while the larger options are losing steam. And according to LinkedIn Influencer Michael Fertik, the appeal of these growing sites lies mostly in their size.

That might be because larger sites like Twitter and Facebook have huge audiences, which means when you say something embarrassing or controversial on them, tons of people see it. On smaller, even anonymous sites like Whisper and Secret, you don’t have that problem. You can still connect with others without facing the consequences that come with screwing up on major social media sites. Also, “In the end, small networks give users a greater feeling of control over their online social lives than their large counterparts.”

What do you think of the newer, smaller social networks that are becoming more noticeable lately? You can read more about them at LinkedIn.
