New York, NY (PRWEB) July 20, 2010
Today Slamstr.com announced its official transition into Beta. The site, whose theme centers around dispatching anonymous insults, has been available as a prototype web app since mid April and has been steadily gaining momentum since its inception.
Slamstr.com users have profiles where visitors can type in an anonymous insult or "Slam" to the profile owner. The Slam then gets sent to the profile owner's inbox where they can choose to reply (Slamback) or delete the message. Messages that profile owners respond to get posted on their profile for the world to see and laugh at.
Since Slamstr's very low key and informal launch, the website has gained hundreds of users that have insulted each other thousands of times.
"It all started as an experiment," said the site's 19 year old co-founder Mark Stein. "The internet has always been an outlet for people's emotions - including aggression. Our idea was to put a positive spin on this by giving people the opportunity to sign up for a chance to be insulted and they are loving it!"
"The Beta release is a very big deal for us." said Eliya Stein, Mark's older brother and Slamstr.com co-founder. "It means tons of bug fixes and a better product for our users. Slamstr is an entertainment site, and with the improvements we have made over these last few months it is a pleasure to finally give our user base a more stable application."
When asked about future plans for their project the brothers replied, "Our primary focus right now is to develop the site into a robust application and to grow the Slamstr brand. In order to do so, we are working on securing funding and implementing a monetization strategy that does not detract from the user experience."
