Chicago Based Company Looks to Sell URL,

Share Article

A private dating club, The Social Network, based in the Chicago land area for 20 years is currently auctioning their URL,

Yes, The Social Network is for sale, but maybe not the one you are thinking of. The Social URL is for sale. With the current drive in social media and social networking, the term, The Social Network, has defined the ways we interact with each other, used for a movie title and even describes one of the largest social networking businesses in the world. But what is the URL being used for now?

Currently The Social Network URL is owned by a corporation in Chicago for a private dating club with the same name. The Social Network has been serving the single dating community in Chicago for almost 20 years. “The name has served us well,” states Cheryl Shumake, owner of The Social Network, “but with the trend in social networking and the release of the movie, many searching the web think we are something different. I have received many requests over the past years to sell the URL, and the combination of all these factors is why I have decided to sell.”

Cheryl continues, “The name, The Social Network does not define my company in our market, and the name (The Social Network) should really be used for what its true meaning is and in a much grander purpose. I know there are a lot of entrepreneurs out there who want to give their business a head start on the competition, and what better of a way then to start with one of the most used phrases as your URL. I think any business would benefit greatly with this URL, especially any kind of social networking business.”

Cheryl plans on changing the company’s name and promises it will be more local and easy for her clients and new members to find. One of the choices she is thinking of is The Chicago Social Network.

The Social Network URL is currently on auction at go daddy. The direct link to the auction is: The Social Network Corporation in Chicago also holds the trademark.

The Social Network is Chicago's premiere dating club. The Social Network prides itself on bringing fun, professional singles together at upscale events throughout the Chicago land area; not online dating. Visit for more information or contact Cheryl Shumake at Cheryl(at)TheSocialNetwork(dot)com
