Former "Baywatch" star and "America's Got Talent" judge David Hasselhoff has created his own social networking Web site, called HoffSpace.
"In my travels round the world I have always been surprised that no matter where I go people recognize and know me, from Europe, Australia and India to the Philippines and the Zulu Nation in South Africa," he says on his Web site.
"This got me thinking... I realized that while two people from two entirely different countries and backgrounds may seem to have nothing in common, the only thing they might have in common is me... So I decided to start a network where people from across the world might come together and get a conversation started over me," he continues.
Hasselhoff says the site, which currently has 13,424 members, offers videos and photos of the "adventures of my life (THAT NO ONE ELSE GETS TO SEE)," as well as a chance to see him live on "Hoff TV."
In explaining why he started HoffSpace, the actor says "the world would be a better place if everyone talked a little more to each other. ...Tell me the stories of how you are making a difference in your life and, if you need my help, ask... One man or woman CAN make a difference..."
