Snuffy Norton-Bearmani and CanBeSocial

My dear pals, I have the furry bestest news ever. So many of us have been deleted or shut down by Facebook and Google+ and have been wondering where can we socialize (besides Twitter)? Well my pals, in addition to Fursbook and VirtualPetwork, we now have CanBeSocial. Here’s @SnuffyNorton to tell us about it.

“I was very excited when I heard Google was coming out with their own social networking site. I thought, no longer will we be in fear of being deleted like we are on Facebook, just because the administrators don’t think we are real.

A bunch of my bear, cat and dog friends flocked over to Google+ and tried it out. It wasn’t very long before they too stated we are not real and started to delete us.  Very upsetting indeed!!

It was then that I decided to take matters into my own paws. Having help from a couple of computer nerds  I launched It is not just for fluffies or cats or dogs. It is for everyone. I had heard from many of you that you want to socialize with everyone, not just your own species.

Unlike other networks we do not ask for personal details for you to join. You are welcome to share your information but it is not required to sign up. No phone numbers, birthdays, addresses etc.

We are over 130 members and that number increases daily.  We encourage all of you out there to join. Rabbits, bears, wooden ducks, humans, cats, dogs….well you get the picture.  Our only rule is that you be nice.

Following are some screen shots to show you some features and how easy the site is to use. I recommend that you do read the FAQ to make it easier for you to enjoy our site.

This is the main wall when you log in. You will see the latest activities as well as latest members, groups, photos, videos and events.

I have installed a calendar to make it easy to see what events/birthdays etc are happening. We encourage our members to add their events.

This is your own profile page. It allows you to show or hide photos, events, videos etc.  Under the profile tab, you can change the layout of your page.

There is a nice little chat program at the bottom of the screen. You can do one-on-one chatting but also you can go into the chat rooms to talk to your friends. There are public rooms and you can create your own private room.


There are many other features which you can go explore once you join.

Thanks to Pumpkinpuddy for allowing me to write about my new little venture. Hope to see you anipals and humans at

Thank you so much Snuffy!


I belong to all three – Fursbook, VirtualPetwork, and CanBeSocial. They’re all excellent, but I have to say I personally find CanBeSocial the easiest to use. I find the user interface to be clean, well laid out, and familiar. I haven’t spent as much time there as I’d like to yet. I’m hoping with the cold weather coming I’ll get to spend more time there during the winter since Mom won’t be out so often and can help me with the computer. I hope you’ll check out all three sites. I bet you’ll wind up joining all three like I did!
