North Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 27, 2006
Carmine Puleo a Sicilian immigrant that truly resembles Tony Soprano, X owner of 9 pizzerias, coincidently enough the last 2 of his establishments one in New Jersey, and one in South Beach FL. Both where Named Soprano's Pizzeria. Carmine is now the founder of http://www.FunZulu.com & contends that the American dream is alive and well, also predicts that history will repeat it self & dot com's will at some point rebound.
When I asked him how he intends to compete in this market place with such giants as MySpace?? he simply relied, "it's not the first horse out the gate that wins the race John, at one time I was a new comer in the pizza world and after owning 9 shops my competitors will tell you this dude is viciously competitive" this X Pizzeria owner is one of the most ambitious tenacious focused individuals I have ever interviewed, you know just by the tone of his voice, this is one intense individual.
FunZulu.com has a lot of the same characteristics as MySpace, but, it is also very different in many aspects, it is as addictive as Myspace, if not more so, FunZulu is new to the scene and just launched Jan 3, 2006, the world of social community networking portals is a rough wave to ride and only the strong will survive.
Just like MySpace it seems that they've launched it on a shoe string budget , but as we all know, that does not spell success nor failure, but it does mean that FZ just like many new start ups has a big mountain to climb, ultimately how successful it will become, remains to be seen.
The site has grown by 200% in new membership in March alone and it seems that it's starting to gain some momentum. Although FZ is still under the radar, Carmine Puleo CEO and Founder likes that way, " John I don't want the competition knowing we even exist just yet, if they wake up one morning and say, who the hell is FunZulu.com, then I know we've done our job ".
The site is totally free & in my honest opinion it's worth joining. I can tell you from my experience there and from interviewing some of their loyal members, I'd have to say http://www.FunZulu.com on a scale from 1 to 10 currently rates a 8.6. Carmine and his 6 I-T Team members who all own a piece of FZ, believe FZ is a success story about to unfold and predict that the word of mouth will go into high gear with in 6 Mo.
Carmine Puleo who likes to be called Mel on the site, says the big stuff that I'm not privy to discuss will be launched towards the end of 2006, so while Mel keeps us all in suspense the only thing we can do is wait and see if FunZulu dominates the head lines in the next 18 months.
