MeetMe® to Speak at the Social Discovery Conference in San Francisco August 6-7

NEW HOPE, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) - MeetMe, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MEET), the public market leader for social discovery, announced today that it will present at the SocialDiscovery.org conference on August 6-7, 2012 in San Francisco. The Conference will be held at the Merchants Exchange Building in the Julia Morgan Ballroom.

Geoff Cook, COO and President, Consumer Internet of MeetMe, currently the 18th most trafficked site in the US by page views according to comScore, will cover people discovery and the opportunity to build a mass market brand for meeting new people by engineering serendipity.

Social discovery has emerged as the latest trend in social media and social networking, as users join networks to find people, places and things based on their specific interests. As a result, social discovery sites such as MeetMe are experiencing significant levels of growth compared to traditional social networking models. 

"We are pleased to be participating in this new conference and excited to see Social Discovery grow, gaining visibility in the social networking industry," said Geoff Cook, COO and President, Consumer Internet of MeetMe, Inc.

According to SocialDiscovery.org, social discovery sites are better positioned to promote products and services than traditional online search models. By mirroring the conditions of human search, users discover products and services that their social connections like and recommend. This implies a higher level of performance in terms of conversion and sales, something a traditional social network generally lacks.
