Popular Nigerian gossip blogger, Linda Ikeji, has launched a social networking site that’s aptly called, “Linda Ikeji Social“.

If you’ll recall, in August, Linda Ikeji announced she would be branching out to other forms of media with an online TV network, an online radio station, a music website, and something called “LIS.” Many of us wondered what this “LIS” meant, and it seems we have our answer – Linda Ikeji Social. Apparently, the site has been in testing for some weeks, and today, the first of November, was chosen as the launch date.

According to the copy on the site, LIS is a community where users can “make friends, be the first to know when things happen, have fun, and get awesome rewards.” To join this community, users can either create a free account or sign up using their Facebook accounts.

In Linda Ikeji’s words, LIS is “social networking meets blogging meets classifieds ads/buy and sell all in one package.” I signed up (of course, I did), and this is what my feed looks like – news and ads.
