A Teen Social Network Gets Justin Bieber’s Approval… and $1.1 Million

Justin Bieber Social Network

We know that Justin Bieber loves social media. He’s already the crown prince of Twitter. Now, he’s giving more than his 2 cents. He led a round of funding worth $1.1 million to the social network that wants to be the place for teens to express their angst.

The network will be called Shots of Me but will not have a matching domain. It launches this week.

RockLive CEO John Shahidi said of Bieber, “He’s been very involved in our products, helping us test things and providing feedback… When we told him that we were looking to create a social network for teens that really addresses what they aren’t getting on other networks, and which tries to deal with things like cyber-bullying, his eyes just lit up.”

He currently has 46.5 million Twitter followers, which is more than anyone else in the world (save for fellow singer Katy Perry, with whom he is effectively tied).

Living minus the answers to the issues you’ve solved all through your website is a serious case, as well as the kind that might have badly affected my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your web blog. The understanding and kindness in handling almost everything was very useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a thing like this. It’s possible to now look ahead to
