Mobile Dating From Zogo
From WSJ Cellphones beat computers for dating
Zogo expects users to communicate in a novel way: by voice.
Instead of exchanging emails over a number of days, users are connected by a phone call -- even within minutes in cases where a user accepts an expression of interest from another user. Zogo makes the calls to the two users. No phone numbers are made public, so users can remain anonymous behind their screen names.
The Zogo service is free as the company builds up its user community. Mr. Ressler expects it eventually will cost $12.99 a month, including 30 minutes of calling.
