For those of a certain age, the names MySpace and Friendster ring a bell of familiarity. These early social networks paved the way for Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Threads and anything with a “Close Friends” option (aka Top 8). You know who Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey are but before them was Tom. Simply Tom.
During that same era emerged Buddytown. Part social network, part parody site and entirely a good time; the destination required an invite from an existing member to be let in. Once you had an account, there were no heated debates or spreading misinformation but there were virtual STD’s that got passed from profile to profile. It was a time of online exploration and experimentation; when website’s could be fun and weird and not at all concerned with measuring daily active users or selling you some bizarre advertisement.
Buddytown made things fun online and in real life; by having events that embodied Nashville’s version of The Cobra Snake or Last Night’s Party. They were loud, sweaty and a delightful way to spend a Saturday night. One could even argue that Nashville’s current DJ and Pop scene owe a little bit of their DNA to Buddytown.
Buddytown was mysterious, absurd and a ton of fun. The light burned bright and burned out. But at least the domain is still active in 2023.
