We wanted to start something different. We wanted to give users a place to be themselves and meet new people. We wanted to offer people an alternative social network that was centered around user's experience, not making millions off of selling their information.
Remember the good old days when you could add as many friends as you wanted even if you didn?t know them? You can't do that on your other social networks because people will think you're weird. That?s what Fakepals is for. Fakepals encourages users to branch out, meet new people and make as many new friends as possible. Let your other social networks manage your real friends and let Fakepals manage you're not so real friends.
Behind the Name:
The name Fakepals was chosen because we wanted to make it transparent to users that contacts in this social network can range from close friends, family members, people you keep in contact with or people you don't even know. We wanted to make a platform where you can add users just for the fun of it.
When: Launched February 2011
Why: It was time for something new that is focused on the users.
