TechCrunch.com just covered another company built around a .Me domain name.
According to the story PushPage.me is “launching its personal homepage and Q&A platform today, backed by $1.7 million in seed funding. ”
“The product, live now on both web and mobile, offers users an online presence where they can publicize their likes and interests through a series of interview-like questions.
“The company was founded in mid-2011 by Harvard grad (and former Facebook intern) Meir Lakhovsky and Cornell grad Jared Jaffe.”
The service is now in beta, and already has seen over 5,000 people creating PushPages on the platform, answering questions about their interests, hobbies, recommendations and tastes.
“When users first sign up, they’re asked several questions to get started, some more practical than others. For instance, you may be asked about your favorite restaurant, TV show or song, or “something interesting about you most people don’t know?,” if you want to dive a little deeper. To keep the content fresh, users are sent a new question to answer each week.”
The founders see PushPage as a way for celebrities and other notable people to reach out to their fans (e.g., see author Daniel Pink, TV personality Farrah Abraham, musicians Imagine Dragons, etc.), but also as a way for members in closed communities to get to know each other better.
“While anyone today can create a PushPage for free, private-labeled versions are available for companies, schools, fraternities or sororities, non-profits, and other organizations. Small “PushPage Communities” up to 15 people are free, then pricing starts at $60/month for small-to-medium sized organizations.”
