WooMe is a company founded by Stephen Stokols and George Berkowsk. They created an online version of speed dating, a place to meet interesting people using video, audio and a few minutes of your time.

woom2.pngUsers sign up to the site, create and personalize their profile, create a session, invite the people they find more interesting and wait for their session to start. They then have up to two minutes to chat to each of the participants, and finally decide who they “woo” and who they’re not into. If two users woo each-other they’ll have a chance to get each other’s contact information using their Woo credits (now given out for free).

Using video and audio for these “online introductions” or speed dates is a smart idea and technologies like Flash allow Woome to offfer all this in an easy to use environment, without requiring any download. People use WooMe not only to find their soul mates, but also to meet friends or chat about any topic.

The website is getting extremely popular between 18-24 year-olds, doubling their traffic every month.

just played in a “speed session” called “international pimp” – technology and UI work great, better comms quality than skpe, and pretty fun experience.

Hi Martin
Online flirting experiences a renaissance with several sites bringing
innovative concepts to the market.
We have recently launched OWONDA (http://www.owonda.com) in the German
speaking region, offering an “active flirting” approach: Rather than
focusing exclusively on video-technology, we have integrated live
video and voice chatting into a comprehensive flirting platform on
which users flirt in a playful and easy way.
Our research and experience shows that online flirters still love to
use traditional means to flirt such as poking and simple messaging,
while new technology greatly complements the online flirting
experience. In addition, not only the means of communication drives
the online flirting experience, but also if and how you can find the
right date for you on a specific site. Hence, on OWONDA you can either
blind date, browse common interests in groups or search in minute
detail for your dream date.
If you are keen to explore more up and coming online flirting sites,
check out http://www.iminlikewithyou.com, too!
