MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET), the public market leader for social discovery, has launched its Friend Suggestions feature on its iPhone application. The feature, previously available on the web platform, surfaces a “People You Might Like” section within Feed and Friends, with the goal of driving more friend requests, new friendships, and ultimately, new chat conversations.
“We are focused on solving the problem of finding new high quality chat partners for our users,” said MeetMe CEO Geoff Cook. “Friend Suggestions helps facilitate new interactions by suggesting relevant people. We consistently find that friends are more likely to chat each other and reply to a friend’s chat. In the week since we’ve launched the feature, we are pleased to see iPhone friend requests up more than 60%, and to see total friend requests up 30%. We expect we will continue to grow new friend connections with the launch of Friend Suggestions on Android in Q3.”
