Toronto, ON (PRWEB) April 4, 2008
Randomate.com (speed dating online) today announces an application called Speed Dating 2.0 built on the Facebook® Platform that gives all Facebook users the opportunity to participate in real-time online speed dating. "Our free service allows members to spend five minutes with five suitable partners during each speed dating session," said Harrison.
"First we created Online Speed Dating 2.0 as a stand-alone social network called Randomate.com and now we're working to provide Facebook users with a chance to find their perfect match," Randomate.com creator Art Harrison said.
"The Internet helped revolutionize online dating by allowing people to find their perfect match from the comfort of their own home," continued Harrison. "The major drawback to dating with social networks and websites however has always been the time required to find a match."
"Creating a new application on Facebook Platform allows us to tap in to the rich and exciting user base of Facebook," said Harrison. With more than 68 million active users, Facebook is the fifth-most trafficked website in the United States "They've built such a solid foundation of friendships and relationships. Our goal is to help extend the user experience by allowing them to make new friends and even find love through a series of 5 dates."
Speed Dating 2.0 is a true hybrid of speed dating online and social networking. The majority of online dating sites require users to search through thousands of profiles, submit friend requests to potential matches and wait for a response before ever starting a conversation. With Randomate.com and the new Speed Dating 2.0 application for Facebook, the conversation comes first. "The genius of speed dating is that it allows people to bypass awkward introductions," said Harrison. "It gives daters the chance to meet a diverse group of people and quickly find out where there's chemistry."
Facebook launched Facebook Platform, a development platform that enables companies and engineers to integrate with Facebook and gain access to millions of users. About 50 percent of Facebook users return to the site each day, providing unparalleled distribution potential for application and the opportunity to build a business that is highly relevant to people's lives.
Speed Dating 2.0 is built as an extension to Randomate.com which offers a complete array of interactive tools. Randomate.com allows members to join and create online speed dating rooms, instant message other members on the site, create and design custom profiles, post blogs and more. "Real people meeting in real-time; we're doing everything possible to help people find love and friends online."
Randomate.com is a speed dating social network designed and maintained solely by 29-year-old entrepreneur Art Harrison. Art has been developing a diverse group of online communities and social networking sites since 2001.
