For over a decade now, the Social Networking need of Nigerians has been satisfied by foreign companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn among others. However, in the past few years, some Nigerian internet businesses have rising to the challenge of converting those foreign hits into local hits; therefore, reducing foreign dominance on Nigerian Social Connections.
Among these Local Challengers are:
Nairaland - Nigerian General Forum
Boenx - Connenting Entreprenuers
Naijapals - Latest News Community of Nigerians
Webnigerians - Connecting Nigerians for Influence of Circles
Worthy of note is the courage with which these local challengers are pushing the frontier of Social Networking in Nigeria, towards bringing Nigerians back home in their networkings.
