"This announcement confirms our presence at the nexus of all things social; a place where you locate others with the same interest, create a friendship or interest group, and perpetually view friendable as the source for local, social connections," Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social.

"The excitement being generated on a very viral and local level with our new brand has surprised me to say the least. Friendable captures the imagination of our existing users and allows them to be very specific in terms of what they intend to be 'friendable' for in a hyper-local manner," stated Rositano.

"Imagine not having to be overwhelmed with annoying requests to connect unless you have pre-determined you are "friendable" for that type of connection," added Rositano. "Being "friendable" is only the beginning; tell the app what it is you are "friendable" for and let us show you a myriad of relevant connection opportunities."

About iHookup Social:

iHookup Social is a mobile-social app positioned at the intersection of location based connections, love and adventure, stimulating hyper-local opportunities for our user community as well as the venues and merchants competing for their business.

The company seeks to redefine the way people connect, find love or embark on an adventure and by allowing each user to clearly define what they are "friendable" for, the app is designed engage specific and local interest. iHookup Social is where real people make real connections and businesses pay to be their host. The by-product of our business model inherently produces "hyper-local" advertising opportunities for the company, driving customers to local venues and / or businesses. The laws of attraction or making a new connection have shifted, with the traditional meaning of "being social" or "meeting up", now taking a backseat to meeting online or through a mobile device and apps.

Making connections through online or mobile devices has become a dominant part of today's mobile-social lifestyle, across various social circles, age groups, race, gender and demographics. iHookup Social takes the virtual connection and moves it toward a real-life interaction, facilitating connections and offering-up locally relevant hot spots and locations to meet up with these new connections, allowing iHookup Social to become both matchmaker and concierge. This combination provides a unique opportunity for consumer brands to offer incentives to a growing network of socially active mobile users on a hyper-local basis.
