The new social networking app Friendsy, is a mash-up between Facebook and Tinder by letting users choose whether the want to befriend, date, or hook-up with other people who use it.
Things aren’t quite left up to chance with Friendsy, as they have included a Hint option which allows you to leave an anonymous message in order to increase your chances of being matched with someone. The app also has a function called ChitChat, which matches you with a random student who is also currently online and allows you to have a live chat with him or her.
The idea is the brain-child of two students, Michael Pinsky and Vaidhy Murti, and it goes back to the very roots of what made Facebook big, which is basically making it exclusive to American college students (users must have a .edu email address to sign up for the service).
However, judging by the success of the app to date, the app may very well be rolled out nationwide sooner rather than later. Already, it has attracted 45,000 users from 1,600 different colleges across America, and has raised over $200,000 from various sources.
