Tory MP Louise Mensch and her online sidekick Luke Bozier are looking to increase their egg to face interaction … by launching a rival to Twitter and Facebook. Menshn.com, which offers users glorified chat rooms, is currently restricted to US visitors but can easily be viewed in the UK using a proxy server.
There’s room in the market for a new social networking site I think. Facebook is losing it.

Scrapbook can see this rapidly going the same way as Municipo — a mapping system for local authorities launched by Bozier when council budgets were falling through the floor.
Predictably enough, Bozier also uses the new venture to indulge his favourite fantasy — that he worked for Tony Blair rather than as a junior-level staffer in the Labour Party’s HQ, claiming he was “head of digital communications”. No such job title has ever existed.
“Luke Bozier worked for Tony Blair at Labour HQ as head of digital communications”
The Menshn rules decree that “The first rule of menshn is you do talk about menshn.”
Scrapbook doesn’t envision this will be a problem in a couple of months time.
