With all of the scandal Facebook has been enmeshed in, not to mention the frequent online harassment women face, new social networks are becoming more attractive. One of them, named ‘Maverick,’ recently launched. Its mission? To empower tween girls through new “challenges” and positive affirmation that avoids the trap of competition and comparison. New business models of other women's networks are keeping away trolls that women deal with on other sites, while Maverick calls attention to the new ways women are connecting and finding community outside of the mainstream.
