Launched in 2005, MeetMe.com has grown into a large dating platform with over 1.2 billion monthly page views. MeetMe.com more closely takes it’s inspiration from social media platforms, offering a familiar user interface that many will find easy to use. Instead of matchmaking in the traditional sense, this platform allows you to discover others based on their status updates, similar to facebook.
This platform makes it easy to discover like-minded singles in your area. Every status update from a user allows you to click through to their profile, see a timeline of their status updates alongside their personal information, interests and profile pictures. You can also “friend” another member so you can follow their updates like other social media platforms. This is a much more passive dating site, giving users the chance to see each other’s daily stream of thought and engage in a less sexual way, lower pressure type interaction.
