Company Details

Update

WAYN (Where Are You Now?) is a travel & lifestyle based social network with over 20.4 million members worldwide.

WAYN aims to help its members fulfill their dreams by meeting like-minded people to do cool stuff with and by sharing their intentions and experiences with others. WAYN also allows users to keep tabs on the friends they've met around the world, and meet new ones as well based on things they have in common.

The idea for the site was hatched after founders Jerome Touze and Peter Ward returned from a backpacking tour across the world and wanted an easy way to keep in touch with the friends they'd met across the globe. WAYN competes with other travel-focused social networks and services like TripUp, HereOrThere, and TravelMuse.

The WAYN Founders have also launched a new dating site under the WAYN umbrella. WAYN Dating helps people find their match based on doing what they love.
