"Social networking shouldn't be so boring"
Posted by Gordon Smith

Type "Facebook Fatigue" into Google, and you get 292,000 results. More or less.

Jeff Wurtz at Lymabean sees an opportunity. It's another college networking site, but he claims that it's more fun than Facebook. It's still in beta, but you can see for yourself in the video tour.

Though I have a Facebook profile, I don't use it. And I am not a student, so I am not eligible to use Lymabean. But I am blogging about Lymabean because of a peculiarly resonant (for me) aspect of the founding story. You see, Wurtz graduated from BYU in accounting, and he said one of the reasons he started Lymabean was because he "just wanted to get out of accounting."

Been there, Jeff.
