Sojabook is an online platform meant for farmers, where they can share their problems and solutions to every day activities. It already has 10 thousand users.

Created 4 months ago by Mariano Torrubiano, a 31 years old from Argentina, Sojabook already has more than 10 thousand users, of which 15% are Brazilians, but there are also users from Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, China and India.
 
At Sojabook people from the rural area can share their problems and solutions to every day activities, and Mariano also intends to use it for publicity and advertisements (like a "classified" section).
 
According to Mariano, the first and greater rural network in South America is expected to reach 100 thousand users until the end of 2012.
