San Mateo, CA (Vocus) August 9, 2010
In two years, WhosHere™ has surpassed 1.5 million users. myRete, the makers of WhosHere, has accomplished this incredible growth with no outside investment. It’s users have sent over one billion free text messages and over 42 million free image messages.
WhosHere is the first mobile social networking app for the iPhone to let you meet new people and interact based on proximity. The application introduces you to people that you have something in common. When you find someone interesting, you can send them free text and image messages and make free VOIP calls. All this is done without disclosing any personal information unless the user chooses to provide it.
Stephen Smith, co-founder of myRete, said “Our growth continues to accelerate. We are very proud, as a boot-strapped operation, that WhosHere user counts are comparable to FourSquare and Gowalla.”
WhosHere users use the app for all sorts of reasons including dating, making new friends, chit-chatting with like minded people, looking for jobs, selling stuff, looking for clients, promoting bands, practicing foreign language skills with native speakers and virtual tourism.
WhosHere is a mobile social networking application enabling users to meet friends, potential dates, or network through an exceptionally well-designed interface. WhosHere shows matching profiles nearby or anywhere in the world based on answers to a few questions about yourself and who you are interested in meeting. WhosHere takes the chance out of the chance encounter. Simply find someone you want to talk with then send unlimited, free text and image messages, and make and receive free calls; all within the WhosHere application.
