Voyeur Heaven: WooMe Lets You Post Your Online Video Dates To The Public

Advertising Platform Adap.tv Raises Another $13 Million

WooMe, the site that throws users into 60-second one-on-one online video sessions to form new relationships, is launching a new public version of the site that should appeal to the voyeur in all of us. The site will now allow users to post recordings of their brief dating sessions to the public in a portion of the site dubbed “WooMe TV”.

Following each dating session, users will be asked if they’d like to post a recording of their chat to WooMe TV. If both parties agree, the video is posted to the public (everything is opt-in).

At first, the idea sounds a little bizarre. WooMe (and other online dating sites) are appealing because it’s so easy to escape a awkward introduction or an botched joke – just close the browser window and pretend that it never happened. Sharing these special moments with the public is probably the last thing some users will want to do .

But some of these chats can be pretty hilarious (in my own testing, I am often left cracking up after particularly awkward exchanges), and there should be a fair number of users brave enough to share their romantic adventures. Provided the site doesn’t get overrun with “fake dates” – users who are just trying to be silly just so their video will become popular – WooMe TV could provide a very funny (and perhaps even insightful) perspective of the dating world.

We should note that while WooMe seems best suited for online dating, it is also used to establish new, more platonic relationships. The site is a direct competitor to SpeedDate, a video dating site that has recently been caught using some deceptive tactics on Facebook to gain users.
