I remember getting all excited late last year about Virb, the social network that emerged from the guys at neubix/purevolume. This was supposed to be the anti-myspace with its CSS support and clean designs. So where are they now? compete says under 80,000 users a month vs 5 million on hi5 or bebo.

Does this prove anything? Not really. I was probably more curious than anything. But I am definitely wondering where they are going to play in this opensocial vs facebook platform war.
