Fanpop may standout, however, by picking the best qualities from a number of leading social sites and bringing them together in a neat integration. As they say, "We’re a little bit of Digg, MySpace, Yahoo! Groups, del.icio.us and Yelp all mixed into one."
There are many social sites out there, too much to all survive, but aggregating the best features from specialized social sites may help this start-up rise to face the the largest player(s).
To me, this brings the question, ¨if you continue to aggregate features from various services, where do you stop¨, to mind. In other words, why will there not be a next service which integrates all of the services in Fanpop, along with a few other/newer services? Can it crate a vicious, redundant cycle of unnecessary innovation.
This is a question that the team at GROU.PS needs to keep in mind.
