A few weeks back I talked about how Social Networking is going to get small. Meaning, we are going to start to see Social Networking websites focusing on a specific group, not a broad category (Facebook, Myspace, etc). This is the logical next step for many reasons, one being that there are a limitless topics that can be targeted and focused on. Enter Chess.com.

Chess.com is a website that focuses on connecting Chess players throughout the world with games, tutorials, forums, blogs, events and much more. Here is their tagline: "Chess.com aims to provide a safe and enjoyable environment where chess players of all skill levels can learn, contribute, play, build, chat, and share."

This time next year the buzz will be around mergers and acquisitions in the "Targeted Social Networking"... trust me, it is the next, next big thing.
