Pounse.com Introduces Users Through Facebook Friends

Invitation-Only Site Lets Members Meet Friends of Friends, Connect Others

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - Ever see someone on Facebook who looked interesting? Maybe it was a friend of a friend, but getting in touch seemed awkward. Today Pounse (www.pounse.com) relaunches with innovative new Facebook Connect features that harness the power of your social network to see who's out there -- for dating, introducing friends and even secretly finding out who's interested in you.

When signing up using Facebook Connect, you'll let your friends on Pounse see which of your Facebook friends strike their interest, letting them either communicate directly or request an introduction. And if they anonymously give a member thumbs up, your friends are notified of mutual interest risk free.

Joining Pounse using Facebook Connect takes seconds, ensures profiles are accurate and keeps your activity completely private from Facebook. Pounse also lets members show off their Twitter and LinkedIn pages on their profile.

"Pounse is perfect for people like my friends who hate meeting strangers in bars, but always hit it off with new people at house parties and backyard barbeques," says Scott Nolan, cofounder and CEO. "Online dating is like the bar scene: strangers meeting strangers. Pounse is built to help people meet through friends like in real life, eliminating the problems of meeting online."

Stason Strong, cofounder and CTO believes, "The best part is how easy it makes it to see everyone across your Facebook network. We all know our friends have hundreds of friends we'd want to meet, and normally house parties are the only chance. Pounse helps you meet new people between those events. Great parties only happen once in a while, but Pounse is always ready to go."

Pounse is free but membership is limited, normally requiring an invitation to join. However in honor of Valentine's day, Pounse is letting all users sign up through the end of February. And for every new invited member who completes their profile, Pounse is donating $1 toward Haiti relief. To join now, visit www.Pounse.com.
