Sites like Virb fit in a different niche, as both an outlet for amateur and semi-professional creative types and a smaller, more exclusive-feeling community of like-minded hipsters. It seems that the only remaining appeal of the one-size-fits-all approach of sites like MySpace is the convenience of maintaining a single presence for one's diverse interests. Or, as Hansen puts it, "I'd like to have just one place where I can meet artsy types, make business connections, and skeez on 16-year-old girls, but it's just not happening."
