Twin brothers, Chidi and Chika Nwaogu, 300 level students of Physics department, University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, have blazed the trail in the Nigerian social network blogs by hosting over 71, 000 users in their social networking blog, Lagbook, a social discovery for youths.
The Nwaogu brothers started Lagbook two years ago with determination to do something special and different from social networking platforms like Facebook.
According to them, the social discovery site, Lagbook means ladies and gentlemen book and users, especially the youths to form new experience and also meet new people.
“The site which started with 3,000 members now has over 71,000 users, and is currently expanding daily. One main feature of Lagbook is that it’s totally different from facebook. One major difference is that facebook suggests users to you but in Lagbook, you pay to get yourself featured,” held Chidi and Chika.
Speaking further, they said: “We also give room for people to advertise their goods and services, pictures and profiles. Lagbook is still expanding since inception and our advice is that if you’re not on Lagbook, you ‘re missing the fun because it’s a new world entirely.”
