Plymouth, PA, USA – MeetFriendz.com is a Degree2Career Startup Project that is run by interns in the Philly area. MeetFriendz using an enhanced social media design, offers members the opportunity to connect with new like-minded peeps. Arrange interest-based meetups and engage in thrill-seeking, travel, concerts, volunteering, — Members plan and Members choose! MeetFriendz eliminates zombie scrolling over ads and conflicting personal opinions.
So many people are angry about what they see in the news “on all sides.” They feel frustrated because they are letting social media shape ideas and this is inciting hate and frustration for all of us. Digital enhancements need to be made to social media to allow individuals to connect socially but with less opinion-based rhetoric. Society needs a place with less “zombie scrolling” and more individualized control over the seen data. The technology needs to help to drive activities beyond the digital space and allow people back to living their lives the way they want.
The MeetFriendz motto is “Life is About Your Experiences.” Members simply create a free profile at MeetFriendz and identify their personality, hobbies, and interests and the MeetFriendz Original Matching (MOM) Technology will match members with others who have the same ideas about what is fun to do.
Members can create or join groups, events, and forums. They can chat privately to plan meetups with other like-minded folks. Members are in total control of their profile and can easily manage what others see about them in the database. There is even a rating system to help other members avoid the wrong types of people. Members can block individuals that do not appeal to their interests. No personal contact information including phone numbers, physical address and email addresses are accessible for others to see on the system. The member will have the opportunity to share this information if they feel it is appropriate.
MeetFriendz, this new startup operated by student interns, will be conducting promotional events in the Philadelphia Area this fall. The schedule will be available and posted on the MeetFriendz website by the middle of September.
This new one-of-kind MOM database will help to connect people in a safe and comfortable way. MeetFriendz offers members the opportunity to connect with new like-minded peeps. Arrange interest-based meetups and engage in thrill-seeking, travel, concerts, fairs, car shows, shopping, sports teams, volunteering, camping, religious events, pubs, gym, LGBTQ, sober living, book clubs. Members choose and plan what is right for them. There are also ways to search for other members based on particular hobbies, music, and/or movies.
If society stopped focusing on how other people are living and instead focused on things that they enjoyed, everyone would have less stress and more happiness in their lives. This new digital MOM enhancement incorporates all the good things about social media without feeling overwhelmed by constant information. This new innovation will help us move back to the world of the living and it will unequivocally improve our hostile feelings about others because we won’t be so engaged with their status updates. We will be more engaged with like-minded peeps and in planning our next adventure!
