The new Gay.com provides members a fun and technologically sophisticated environment that meets the numerous needs of our users, whether they’re looking for friends, activity partners, or their one true love
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
The world’s first and most-trusted gay dating site re-launches with a new look, new features, and a new attitude toward online gay social dating.
Gay.com, the world’s original and most recognized LGBT social networking site, today debuts a new site design delivering to users a dynamic and comprehensive online networking experience. The site combines the greatest and most innovative features available with improved functionality to enhance the overall experience for Gay.com’s loyal members and cater to a new population of gay men looking to meet friends, partners, or a husband.
“We have spent the past several months building a technologically advanced Gay.com that addresses the changing needs of our members,” said Bernard Rook, Gay.com’s executive vice president and general manager. “And we’re not done. We have more advanced features just around the corner that are going to increasingly allow members to better connect and get beyond the superficial.”
In addition to its already trusted features like instant messaging, extensive profiles, and photo galleries, Gay.com now offers exciting new features. The new design gives members quick and easy access to suggested matches, new messages, and friend requests as well as allowing members to create personalized lists, indentify member locations, and send photos. The site also now allows members to update their status, expand their profiles, curate their photos into albums, and send photos to other members.
Additionally, Gay.com’s new Lifestyle section updates members with current news, editorial, and features from the most trusted gay and lesbian brands from the Here Media portfolio, including The Advocate, OUT, and Gay.net.
One of Gay.com members’ favorite and most used features, Chat, has an updated look and feel. Gay chat is now an integrated messaging system that can be accessed throughout the site, allowing members to move through profiles and pages while simultaneously chatting. The new site also provides members the opportunity to join various Communities based on particular interests such as Military Service, Fitness, and many others.
“Giving our members the ability to congregate around specific Communities allows them to make their search for friends and mates as expanded or narrow they wish. The need for multiple apps to access a specific community is no longer necessary,” said Gay.com brand manager Brett Edward Stout. “The new Gay.com provides members a fun and technologically sophisticated environment that meets the numerous needs of our users, whether they’re looking for friends, activity partners, or their one true love.”
As always, Gay.com continues to provide a user-friendly social networking system where members can meet like-minded individuals. Members can immediately access member profiles, create their own lists for organizing contacts, multi-chat, and learn more about other members than just their location. The site’s new and existing extensive social networking capabilities provide both a safe and comfortable online meeting environment.
