MeetMe’s New Friend Suggestions for iPhone Drives Increased Friendship Requests


MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET), the public market leader for social
discovery, has launched its Friend Suggestions feature on its iPhone
application. The feature, previously available on the web platform,

the goal of driving more friend requests, new friendships, and
ultimately, new chat conversations.

partners for our users,” said MeetMe CEO Geoff Cook. “Friend Suggestions
helps facilitate new interactions by suggesting relevant people. We
consistently find that friends are more likely to chat each other and
reply to a friend’s chat. In the week since we’ve launched the feature,
we are pleased to see iPhone friend requests up more than 60%, and to
see total friend requests up 30%. We expect we will continue to grow new
friend connections with the launch of Friend Suggestions on Android in
