Not just a marketplace, Friend.Town aims to help users connect with their personal networks and extended networks for more than just buying and selling.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
This year, millions of people will connect through various social media platforms to share pictures, post their favorite quotes and even date. What if people could use their social network in say, a more productive way? Introducing, Friend.Town, a brand new website transforming peer-to-peer interactions through a safe and secure online marketplace.
When most people think of online marketplaces, they often think of eBay or Craigslist. Two very public platforms that don’t always provide the sense of security one might hope to find when they are looking to buy furniture, concert tickets or find a roommate. Unlike these platforms, Friend.Town allows users to choose who they interact with based on personal connections and user profiles that include mutual acquaintances, profile pictures and background information – creating a safe environment for users to connect, buy and sell. “To think someone with 1,000 Facebook friends can now reach a network of more than 1,000,000 people while at the same time having a personal connection with each of those contacts (mutual friends, same school network, etc.) is a great tool to have” says Eric and Brad, brothers and co-founders of Friend.Town.
Not just a marketplace, Friend.Town aims to help users connect with their personal networks and extended networks for more than just buying and selling. With the option to reach a broader group of people, the site offers a user-friendly platform to find a roommate or sublet, for organizing events, a professional job board, basketball leagues, book clubs, yoga meet ups and more!
Officially launching this month on March 16, Friend.Town seeks to be the premier platform for safe peer-to-peer exchanges on the web. “We believe there is an ever growing need of a safer platform for peer-to-peer exchanges and with our networks being as large as they are, Friend.Town can be a useful platform for all ages.”
