Launch DateMarch, 2009

Frintro is Sofa Labs’s first product, launched as a public alpha in March 2009.

It makes finding friends-of-friends to date easy, fun and social. Singles login with Facebook, search their friends’ friends, mark who they’re interested in and ask for introductions. People in relationships can help by giving info or making intros. User generated content is created as friends ask or answer questions, make endorsements for one another and send virtual gifts.

Frintro is the first dating site built entirely on Facebook Connect and uses the power of the social graph to make “friend introductions.”

Launch DateSeptember 1, 2009

Thread helps people meet people through their Facebook friends. Login with Facebook, search your friends’ friends, ask friends for more info, and send Facebook messages. Or play matchmaker by forwarding people to friends.

Because Thread uses Facebook profiles, you can trust that they’re authentic and they are friends with someone you know.

The best way to meet people is through friends… Thread makes it that much easier to find your common thread.
