Fanpop is the one-stop destination for real people with real passions to find real content and community. Remember when the web was small enough that you could look at a directory of the best sites on the web for a certain area of interest. Fanpop as the next generation of fansites created for the fans by the fans. It’s a one-stop destination for fans of anything and everything and the place to find fellow devoted fans. It wanted to make discovering and sharing content fun, easy and social.
[advt]Fanpop is a network of user-generated fan clubs for different topics of interest created and maintained by the community of fans. Each fan club has a bunch of really cool features that empower the fans to share and discover content and interact with each other.
Fanpop can create a new club around a topic of interest. As long as it’s new and doesn’t exist and there are enough fans of that topic, you can build a brand new portal for almost anything. Just click on the link to “Create New Club” in the Pending Clubs module on the home page or click on the green “Create New Club” button on the channels pages. Follow the basic 3 steps of creating a club. Choose the name, add a description, designate a channel and add some tags. Next, upload a nice icon and banner to give the club a little character. Finally – and this is the fun part – you can start populating the club with your favorite videos, links, picks, images and news feeds. While you’re at it, feel free to strike up a conversation in the forums or post an original article.
