David Needle, in his Internet News article entitled, "Tech Conference Takes a Walk on the Wild Side", discusses upcoming business and website WooMe as an unusual take with regards to online dating services.
By taking the face-to-face speed dating concept and moving it online, CEO Steve Stokols plans to use WooMe as a multi-faceted way of connecting people from around the world for romance and friendship. Multi-media connectivity such as live audio and video are in the works cement the site together.
I am unsure as to how WooMe will differ from currently operating online dating sites (such as Lavalife) that already offer speed dating -like services with fully functional audio and video contact options. Others at the conference where WooMe was presented also had concerns with the idea such as one tech journalist by the name of Sarah Lacey who believes younger folks are no longer using online dating sites to meet people.
What do you think? Will speed dating sites take over the Internet, or are other dating methods taking the world by storm?
