About the Concept
MeetYourmessenger is a social network. You can
watch videos, compete with your friends in different online games, create
your own discussion groups and check the latest news. The interesting thing
about this portal is that no matter where you find yourself on the website,
you can communicate with other users; you can decide for yourself if you
want it to be family, friends or colleagues or if you want to meet new
people and expand your private or professional network. We connect you to
everyone who uses meetYourmessenger and you can see how you are connected
to the different users in real life. MeetYourmessenger makes it possible
for you to search for and find other meetYourmessenger users in your
country, area or even city. You can read more about them, see their
pictures, see who their friends are, ask them what they do for a living and
purpose of meetYourmessenger is to create a meeting place where a user
leaves his footprints and thereby automatically creates his profile based
on his movement on the website. For that reason all profiles are open
unless a user chooses to make use of the private galleries and groups or
actively block a user’s access to his profile. Besides a user’s profile
text and pictures, a profile is constantly expanded through the user’s
behaviour on meetYourmessenger, e.g. questions & answers, the use of
Times and Groups, visits to other profiles and reactions to other profiles.
In this way, meetYourmessenger attempts to create an open, dynamic,
close-to-reality and not least useful tool to stay in touch with friends
and create new relations.
When you sign up as user on meetYourmessenger, you
accept your private information to be saved on our servers and passed on to
other users. Just as you can see what other users are doing, writing,
visiting and participating in, they will also be able to see what you are
doing, writing, visiting and participating in. If you are not comfortable
with that you should not create a profile on meetYourmessenger.
