menshn.com is a new social network, formed around a simple idea - talk, on topic. Starting initially with politics, menshn covers the US election, with rooms dedicated to the election and the Obama and Romney campaigns. As users join the site, menshn will expand to cover all topics its users are passionate about.
menshn is launching first in the US, and will add a UK site before the launch of the London 2012 Olympics, adding games-related rooms.
The founders come from the center-left and center right of politics respectively. Luke Bozier worked for Tony Blair at Labour HQ as head of digital communications and founded the local government utility municpo.com. Louise Mensch is a Conservative member of Parliament in the UK and author of 14 popular novels. Both are passionate about politics and social media.
