WooMe, an online speed dating site that I previously covered, has
officially opened up for business by launching into public beta today. I
first met WooMe some of the WooMe team at TechCrunch40 in September.
Then last month, WooMe launched into private alpha. I got a chance to
take a look at it and was impressed with its addictive qualities.
WooMe offers topical groups which could range from anything from "Bush
Sucks" to "Holiday Traveler Looking for Travel Buddy" to "Babysitter
finder." So basically, WooMe offers a face-to-face interaction with a
group of people.
In talking with WooMe CEO Stephen Stokols yesterday evening he was very excited about the launch and had this to say of the product:
"WooMe offers users the ability to setup sessions that are topical similar to groups in Facebook but with a rich media payoff unlike most group sites on the Web today."
He explained that just in the few weeks they have a private beta with nearly 1700 sessions total, over 4500 introductions and around1500 "mutual woos" the WooMe product team has learned so much about user behavior and will be able to leverage it to tweak the product. With the public launch the additional users will help to further WooMe's metamorphosis. Also look for WooMe to focus on distribution as it widgetizes its experience a deep integrate into Facebook to post as an online event and also potentially white label options.
