YapTime - A Place to Share, Collaborate, and Organize

YapTime is a new entry into the "create your own social network" market. YapTime offers a free service for creating and hosting your own private network. The network you create on YapTime is private by default and only those people that you invite can join it. In YapTime you can exchange messages, share files, and host a group event calendar. Within your YapTime network you can create multiple rooms for conversations. Each member of your network can create a profile by which other members identify them.

Applications for Education
YapTime could be a good place to create a network for your classes. You can share updates about class, post files that students might need, and answer questions from students. If you teach multiple sections of the same course you can create a different room for each class within your network.
