Naijaborn is a custom coded Nigerian social network founded by Francis Oghuma and Mambe Nanje Churchill in April of 2009. The social network has received considerable praise since its launch for its innovative design -with a lean towards artists- and for being entirely custom coded by the founders.
Naijaborn is unique from other social networks targeting the Nigerian community because of its unique design and implementation. You can do all the regular things allowed at social networks like create a profile and post pictures. Naijaborn particularly stresses and highlights areas like sharing your music and artwork on the platform.
Their particular perspective to social networking has been hit, with Naijaborn being named one of the top Nigerians start-ups to watch by Loy Okezie in a post, on the African technology blog Memeburn.
With a solid design and a reasonable buzz around it, Naijaborn seems poised for success.
