Grouply is pioneering the â€œsocial groupâ€ â€” a new type of online community that combines the best features of social networks and online groups. Social groups offer the social interactivity, media sharing, and modern design of social networking sites like Facebook; and the rich discussions, popular email interface, and people-discovery opportunities found in traditional online group systems like Yahoo! Groups. With Grouply, you can create a new social group about anything you like or join a social group and connect with others who share your interests and passions.
Existing Google and Yahoo! Groups get an â€œextreme makeoverâ€ on Grouply; each gets a modern, professional, fully customizable website that automatically interoperates with Google and Yahoo! Groups.
Grouply was founded in 2006 and is funded by Oâ€™Reilly AlphaTech Ventures, SoftTech VC and prominent angel investors including Reid Hoffman.
