Stephen stokols dating websites
I’ve never used online dating sites, so maybe all of them employ such aggressive tactics, but tough luck for Woo Me that my friend thought I should see how a Tech Crunch40 finalist behaves. Shady as the company might be, it has attracted a slew of high-profile investors, who’ve pumped about million into the company.
He says I make inaccurate accusations, and that Woo Me does not send messages from “fake” users.A friend just said I should sign up for Woo Me with a picture of a horse instead of my own handsome face, just to see what happens next. I know there’s a lot of fierce competition in the online dating industry, but I’ve rarely seen a site with tactics as aggressive as Woo Me’s, which I should point out was a Tech Crunch40 finalist back in 2007 (albeit with a slightly different positioning than today).Since I’ve signed up for the site, again with a horse as my picture and in the middle of the night in the United States, I’ve been receiving a of unsolicited emails, direct messages, pop-ups, live chat sessions and alleged visits to my obviously fake profile by hot women. Now all I need to do to see who visited my profile or sent me all these private messages, is sign up to become a VIP Woo Me member (.99 per month).Woo Me, which started in 2006, launched in November of 2007 as a speed-dating site, where would-be socializers could quickly find "sessions" tagged with common interests and interact with potential connections via live video feeds.Woo Me CEO and founder Stephen Stokols gave Vator News a sneak preview, showing how the sessions were also in video and voice.
