Lady Gaga launches social network for her Little Monsters
10 July 2012

Lady Gaga has launched her own social networking site, featuring chat rooms, message boards and photo sharing.

The Little Monsters site, which went live yesterday (9 July), describes itself as a ‘community full of art, acceptance, monsters and Gaga’.

Once signed up, fans of the Born This Way singer can share pictures, discuss different topics and talk to other users in one of the many chatrooms, including one for ‘Gay Monsters’.

The site, which is a cross between Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, also features a Monster Code to provide ‘a safe and accepting space for everyone’ and encouraging people to be ‘brave’, ‘kind’, ‘tolerant’ and ‘respectful’.

Gaga has become hugely influential on social networking sites with almost 27 million followers on Twitter and over 52 million Facebook fans.

The Little Monsters website is an attempt to bring together all her various different social networks in one hub.

Fellow gay icon Kylie Minogue set up a similar site in 2007 called Kylie Konnect, but it only managed to gain 5,000 members.
