Mastering The Art Of Seduction On Spotify, Google+ And More

If you really want to kill it on social media, the best thing to do is jump into a new service on the ground floor. Some Twitter users have tons of followers simply because they were there from the beginning. While you can’t go back in time five years to join Twitter, you can jump on the following four new social networking sites and hope they become the next big thing. To help you out, Clutch dove in, figured out what you need to know and, most important, how you can use each one to meet chicks.

Spotify

This music-streaming service has been in Sweden since 2008 and has now been expanded to the United States. As a promotion, Sprite is giving out free memberships to Spotify, odd since their competitor 7UP is the Cool Spot.

Once you get your free account invite from Sprite, or pay $4.99 or $9.99 for one of the premium accounts, you can start building playlists from more than 15 million tracks. Your account remembers which songs, artists and albums you like most and displays them on your profile. You can link a Spotify account with your Facebook and import your info and friends who also use the service. It’s an excellent and easy way to share and trade music with pals all over the place.

Making mixtapes for girls you like has given way to making playlists. But that doesn’t always work because iTunes will block certain songs because they’re not registered for her computer. With Spotify, you can search for other users that like the same music and once you find a cutie, impress her by sending a deftly selected “mixtape” (playlist).

Google+

Last month Google finally threw down the social-networking gauntlet by launching Google+, which is still currently by invite only (if you don’t know someone on it by now, you need to get out more). Facebook has blocked all of Google+ apps and the war is heating up.

Recently, Google+ released their iPhone app, so grab that if you really want to dive in, and you’re going to want to because this networking service is rad. First, it interfaces with all your other Google accounts (Gmail, Gchat, iGoogle). Next, it allows you to organize your contacts into Circles. Whereas on Facebook, your connections are an amorphous blog of Friends, Google+ allows you to group them in categories–Friends, Family, Acquaintances–and you can create as many as you want. You can also Follow people without being approved like on Twitter. Once you get friends using it, you can group video chat in “Hangouts” and communicate within circles via one text in “Huddles.”

Beyond the implications of other social media, Google+ has a feature called “Sparks” that combines the company’s search function with users’ Featured Interests. So, while searching for useless things you love to read about, you can see which users are also writing updates about the topic. If you see a cute girl post something about it, stalk her/add her to your circle and look for your opportunity to start a conversation.

Faces.com

Launched in the U.K., Faces.com has been a variety of things since 2004 but was recently re-launched as a social network with an “online fraternity.” What the hell does that mean? It means this is where you go to hook up if you can’t find a frat party.

The site is essentially a dating website, complete with profiles and the ability to video chat with people you meet there. The site states they noticed their users wanted “great nights out” and “no strings attached fun,” so they created PHI-OM-SIG. Guys and girls can pledge the fraternity’s local chapters after getting a FaceRep score of over 10. You do ¬†that by being active online, meeting people and not being a d-bag. The PHI-OM-SIG chapters plan parties and meet-ups so you can make acquaintances with both sexes.

Yep, that’s all you’ll use it for. Unlike other dating sites, Faces.com gives you a crew of wingmen to roll with.

Anon Plus

It took the hacker group Anonymous less than a month to be kicked off of Google+. And just like the kid who gets kicked out of the treehouse, Anonymous is saying, “Fine! We don’t need your club. We’re gonna start our own club and you guys can’t be members.”

We don’t really know because Anon Plus really isn’t a thing yet. Anonymous stated via blog post: “We have started to build our own Social Network…. Welcome to AnonPlus. [It will thwart] government censorship–so that in the case of a government blackout–the people can still be heard. This social network will also incorporate and facilitate an open source educational environment…allow open communication of ideas–and is essentially a cyber-anarchy formatted environment.”

If you fancy yourself a hacker and get turned on by “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” this is the only social network where you’ll want to meet chicks. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely you’ll ever meet them in person, or know what they look like, or even if they’re actually female.
