What are some of the interesting ideas for an online website that have not been yet explored?

Hey guys!
So I have been thinking about this a lot lately. We live in a world surrounded with technology - some good and some bad. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Ebay, Yahoo etc. to name a few. I was wondering if there were any other ideas that were "out of the box" that would be different to the networking sites mentioned above. I am a person who wants to become a entrepreneur. This is also the main reason why I am starting to think about creating my own business at such an early age. Hopefully everybody can chuck in ideas/suggestions that you have. Who knows? Ten years from now, this might be the birth of a new networking site/business.

    Jun 7 2013: Technology is such a major part of society now that your question is certainly worth creative thought. You mentioned Facebook as a networking web site that is popular - in regards to making networking technology in a sense more "out of the box", I think it would be awesome to incorporate the idea that the Ted conversations "Ideas Worth Spreading" has explored onto the platform of Facebook. The placement of an interesting and valuable debate section, such as the various other applications this site has added since the start of business, would provide Facebook users with a more formidable and perhaps meaningful path of expression. Best of luck in creating your own business - I love invention and creativity. Definitely consider "necessity is the mother of invention" while you explore ideas for your business: what do you think the environment, the people that you know or the world as a whole, is most in need of at this current time? Also, don't limit the thought process of "need" to the typical definition, i.e., do consider what may be supportive of say the morale of humanity versus an entreprenual desire.

      Jun 8 2013: Hi KendI,
      I absolutely agree with you! The only problem is that I am new to TED, so I haven't actually seen much of the videos and ideas displayed here. Were you thinking about any conversations in particular?
