San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
theComplete.me Inc. today announced $500K in financing from Western Technology Investment and the launch of LikeIt ™ (http://www.likeit.com), a fun way to discover people, places, and things via social graph interests and social games.
“We are thrilled to have the distinguished investor Western Technology Investment support our mission to help people connect through shared interests and friends,” said Brian Bowman, theComplete.me Inc. Founder and CEO.
Similar to Facebook’s new Graph Search beta product, LikeIt enables social people discovery, helping users connect to others who are talking about the things they like and share their attitudes. The LikeIt social graph—already more than 20 million people strong--expands people search beyond the Facebook network, allowing users to easily aggregate interests and activities from eight other social networks into their people-discovery experience. LikeIt considers a broad picture of a user’s preferences to make people recommendations, while saving the user the time of having to repeat movie reviews, music channels, favorite restaurants, and other interests from numerous other social sites. The site also uses social games to continually update users’ searchable interests and opinions.
