   So say we all! Unfortunately, I don't see any free (or even close)
alternatives out there. The closest I can find are some local social
networking websites[1] but they've traditionally concentrated on
localization rather than internationalization. This policy did help
them succeed in the countries they operated in and/or targeted but
only until facebook became widespread. They failed to compete against
this new service that offered the same features they offered but
attracted users from all over the world.
