It means that 100% of our member base now has the ability to never miss a message. Shaun Wolfe, TangoWire CEO
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 10, 2011
TangoWire, a community of Online Dating sites, has mobile-enabled its entire member base, to use sms with other members while never revealing the users actual mobile number.
Using Messmo's patent pending iFollowText messaging system, new messages and alerts are sent as regular SMS text messages to members, while uniquely allowing members to reply as if they were normal texts from a friend. Members are assigned an anonymous mobile number to communicate with other members. There are no codes for the user to enter, and their mobile number is never revealed to the recipient.
Shaun Wolfe, CEO of TangoWire, said, “We are very pleased that Messmo has joined with us to extend the reach of TangoWire to mobile. With Messmo’s iFollowText messaging system, we are able to let members receive and reply via text from cell phones as they follow their favorite members. Because it automatically creates a unique cell number for each member that you are following, our members are simply able to hit reply and send a text back immediately. It means that 100% of our member base now has the ability to never miss a message. We are seeing rapid adoption, and more importantly increased interaction and messaging between members, along with additional revenues as members purchase packs of texts.”
Brendan O'Kane, CEO of Messmo, said, "Text messaging is far and away the killer mobile app, due to its universal availability and instant cut through. Messmo’s patent pending iFollowText messaging system, by assigning unique cell numbers, lets members harness the power of SMS, while hiding user’s real cell numbers. For dating and personals sites, the iFollowText platform is not only a new revenue source, but it also reaches all members on any mobile device, and any network. TangoWire is now the second dating partner to adopt iFollowText, and we are seeing terrific interest from sites in the US and UK.”
