out, Twitter — social networking has taken on a new face.
MelonBytes is the world's first Experience Encyclopedia —
an online community where users share experiences from their lives
through stories, photos and videos. It's a way for people to learn

an exciting travel narrative or an intimate story about a first
kiss, MelonBytes helps us become aware of the remarkable moments
that make up our daily lives.
creator Scott McCarter is a Waterloo-based web designer with a
truly innovative approach. "I want MelonBytes to help people
understand what it's like to live the life of someone else: to
see what they see; feel what they feel; and experience what they
experience," he says. He has taken extreme measures to protect
user privacy on the site, keeping last names and emails unpublished
and allowing users to update and edit privacy settings at any
time. "I know what a huge priority security is for everyone
using social networks," says McCarter. "I want people
to feel they can share anything they like, without having to worry
about censoring their writing."

link buttons are added bonuses.
an innovative concept and an already-dedicated user community,
MelonBytes is poised to be the next big breakthrough in social
networking. It's only a matter of time before millions of users
are vying for space on the site's central "featured experiences"
section, sharing their stories with a captive global audience.
