Skyrock.com is a social networking site offering its members a free, personal web space. One can create a blog, add a profile, and exchange messages with other registered members. The site also offers a specific space for members who create blogs showcasing their original musical compositions.
Linked to the French radio station Skyrock by its founder Pierre Bellanger, the Skyrock.com network extends well beyond France. Wildly popular in the French-speaking world, it is available in 14 international versions.
According to the marketing research company comScore, Skyrock ranks as the worldâ€™s 7th largest social network with over 21 million visitors in June 2008.
Skyrock.com started off as a blogging site, Skyblog.com, founded by Skyrock CEO Pierre Bellanger in December 2002. Skyblog's easy-to-use interface proved a hit right from its launch with its young, primarily French-speaking audience.
In May 2007, after abandoning the Skyblog.com brand Skyrock.com was launched as a full-scale social network, with new functionalities such as adding friends, an inbox, chat rooms and member profile.
