Share Article

An innovative form of social networking based on food gives users the ability to express themselves online in a way that few sites do. iMunchie, with its social networking and food-based competitions, is looking to make a presence of its own in the social networking sphere.

A new social website is looking to change the networking game and predict the future of food with their latest endeavor. iMunchie is a new and innovative take on the social networking experience, connecting its users through food. By joining the website, users will have access to countless recipes and different types of food that they can share with friends in real life and online.

With more than 100,000 views from around the world in its first four months, this new form of social networking is well on its way to success. Visitors to the website spend an average of ten minutes or more looking through the many recipes, known as Munchies, that users have uploaded. Users, also known as Chefs, can vote on the quality of each food item they see by rating it on a five-point scale or simply by liking it. Comments can also be left by iMunchie's many users.

Besides sharing food with friends, the website also allows its food artists to submit their Munchies into tournaments. In these tournaments, users vote for the winner. The Muncher with the best Munchie, based on criteria that the creator of the tournament has determined, can receive prizes and money as a reward for their culinary ingenuity.

iMunchie is a well-designed website that allows its users free-range over how they present their food and themselves. Each Muncher has their own page that shows the many recipes they have submitted and gives the visitor access to each. Users can also learn a bit about each food artist by clicking the “About” tab on their page. Many chefs believe that presentation is important and because of this, becoming a top Muncher is up to each user and no one else.

Co-founders Jacob Baloul and Bryan Pivik want iMunchie to become the world's largest personalized food social network. They are well on their way to connecting hundreds of people through food, something that countless people know and love. By adding competitions into the mix, this website has created a recipe for success.
