Maker Media the company responsible for the MAKE website, Maker Faire and more has this week announced the launch a new social network designed specifically for makers called MakerSpace.
MakerSpace takes the form of a Facebook style social network that has been created to connect participants from the hugely popular Maker Faire in one online community accessibly by all.
At the current time makers cannot sell their wares on the social network, but Maker Media will use the space to advertise and sell their range of book titles, Make: magazine, and items from the Maker Shed. Its also not out of the question for the site to allow makers to see their creation in an Easy or Kickstarter style way at a later date. Maker Media CEO Gregg Brockway explains :
“Communities are built around strong cores and the core for us is the Maker Faire but you see so much during the faire that you can’t remember,”-“We want to move that excitement and innovation online so you can connect with the makers on there.”
The MakerSpace beta development stage is currently open this week for anyone that is interested with registrations taking place until May 18th 2015, so don’t delay.
