미팅, 소개팅 – Concepts that might be new to some of us and perhaps something that we secretly wanna try when we watch all those Korean dramas 😛
팅팅팅, a new Korean app launched last week, is about injecting fun to social dating services. Current online services is usually aimed at singles, where they sign up, post up their own profile and then perhaps search through profiles to find their potential partners. Not something that most of us will do willingly and readily.
Instead, many of us would have met our partners through friends, networks etc. TTTing aims to bring the same process to the mobile platform. The app focuses on potential matchmakers (you!!) instead of singles. Once you sign up for an account, you will be prompted to recommend 6 single friends on your list. They will be on your board, and whoever visit your profile will see them.
If you see someone you think is pretty or cute, WOWing them will give them +1 points. Alternatively, if you are really interested in someone, click on the fork sign to POKE them. A message will be sent to your friend (instead of that mysterious guy/girl) and your friend can choose to pass on the message, set up a meeting between you two or ignore it 😛 The guy/girl will see that someone has POKED them, but they wont know who 😛
The app is just launched last weekend, so it’s still pretty new. But it’s awesome and I see some pretty awesome single Korean guys / girls being recommended already 😛
