So how do we meet interesting people outside our usual social circles? Luck, mostly.
Wusoup's here to give your odds a nudge. It's all about chance encounters with friendly strangers. Because life's too short, and a lot more fun with interesting friends.
Wusoup can use your location to find other folks near you (if you like). So whether you're travelling, in a new town, or just looking to make some new friends outside your usual social circles, Wusoup can help.
Wusoup has a rock-solid karma system tuned for messaging. Someone bugging you? Discreetly block them. You'll never see them again, and you'll help other users steer clear.
Want a hookup app? Try Tinder.
Wusoup users are here looking for good conversation, maybe friendship.
So on Wusoup (as in real life), there's no relationship status labels and no way to filter users by gender, age, location, or whether they like Chinese food.
Wusoup's not about objectives, it's about being open to real-life serendipity. Awimbawe.
Seriously though, being creepy will get you kicked.
Meeting someone new's often more fun when you've got something in common. So Wusoup knows what you're into and helps you find others with similar hobbies or interests.
What made Google so special? A breakthrough algorithm that rethought the way that search engines could work.
At the heart of Wusoup likewise lies the Wugorithm, a unique machine-learning algorithm that actually inspired the development of Wusoup. It weaves together karma, interests, and the subtle way that users interact with one another.
Net effect? Wusoup literally learns who you like chatting to and helps you find other similar folks.
This actually works, it's pretty crazy.
Chat rooms and groups have their place, but really getting to know someone often works best when it's just you and them. So Wusoup rocks good old-timey 1-on-1 text chat ftw.
Use your real name, or a nickname. Share your age/location/gender, or keep them private. Wusoup lets you easily choose your own level of anonymity. And no need to fight the defaults: everything's private unless you say otherwise.
Conversations are auto pruned and you can completely nuke all your data at any time.
Seriously, when did the the internet start becoming so scummy?
Wusoup doesn't make money from ads, or selling your information, or trying to get you addicted to dodgy in-app purchases. It's supported by users who want to support it, because they like it and believe in it.
So communism, basically.
When you're not trying to be everything to everyone (hi Facebook!), you can make some interesting choices.
Like choosing to stay small, friendly, and focused.
So Wusoup's a web chat app, not a social network. It's a small community of high quality users, not a race for user numbers.
And at 10k users, Wusoup will be going invite-only with a hard cap at 50k active users (inactive accounts will be auto pruned).
Wusoup's being made by a real "person" that's been single-handedly hacking on this idea for over 7 actual years.
I may be a little un-hinged. Also, I'm on Wusoup so feel free to say hi :-)
Wusoup's really not a dating/hookup app. This isn't one of those oh-it's-not-a-hookup-site-wink-wink things, Wusoup make a bad dating site. It's been designed specifically to make life difficult for people trying to use it that way.
There's enough other places online if you're looking for that kind of thing; Wusoup's a refuge for the rest of us.
