WorldFriends Mixes Facebook With Match.com (And Dares Charging Subscription Fees)
WorldFriends , a social network with a focus on connecting internationally-minded people, was established as early as 2003 but has flown under the radar of the American blogosphere since. The Tokyo- and Shanghai-based site, which now has nearly 2 million users from all over the world, did a soft (re-)launch last week, mainly enhancing a number of networking features. WorldFriends is walking a fine line between being a platform for dating, language exchange and making international friends. At first sight, WorldFriends actually looks much like a heavily internationalized version of your average dating site. The profile page, for example, features a member slide show (showing only female users if that is what you said you are interested in when signing up), a "New photos"-container (again girls only) and an "Your Ideal Match"-list.
