Austrailian-born social networking site seems to be positioning itself as a more colorful, multimedia-friendly site than the many other SoNet (short for social networking) sites out there (ie Myspace). While the site itself isn't new (you can view previous versions here), it's currently relaunching it's brand so to speak.

Now, you can easily share your photos and music or enable others to use widgets of your data on their sites. The business model is similar to the flickr business model. You can upload whatever you want but with a free account, you have limits on storage space and bandwidth. For $25.00 you can upgrade to a pro account which gives you unlimited space and bandwidth.

What's also notable about this SoNet site is it's music sharing capability. You can basically create your own playlist of your favorite songs and you can take that playlist and throw it up on your site. The MySpace crowd would dig this but this could also be of use on blogs. They also plan on building a music store service, so, I'm assuming, a person can purchase a song they may be listening to on the playlist you have playing on your site. Very cool. They're also supposed to be adding photo editing and the ability to upload from your mobile.
