'Friends & Family'
In Real Life (IRL) is the company behind the first visual social network that adds presence to social networks and social media. IRL Connect allows users to take their friends from any social network and visualize them on the map to find, meet and communicate. IRL Connect takes the communications features of social networking sites and makes the user’s location the most important part of the information they broadcast. IRL is a 2009 Red Herring 100 Europe winner as one of the most promising and innovative technology companies in the EMEA region and a Next Web Rising Sun Start-Up Rally finalist. The privately funded company is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with an office in China.
