Striving to become a unique and fun online community site, PetSmooch.com, launched it's website on January 21st.
PetSmooch.com was co-founded by Tirza Van Noord, (a Southern California resident who is a new media enthusiast 'with a soft spot for pets') and by Linkfinity LLC, a Marina Del Rey, CA based Information Services firm as a joint venture.
"PetSmooch is a-la Facebook without the fluff, and a-la Myspace without the mess and is dedicated only to pets and pet owners. It's the new and most fun way of finding playmates and connecting with like-minded people. PetSmooch.com is the Stanford of pet sites!" says Co-founder and PR Director Tirza Van Noord.
"Nobody could resist Tirza's enhusiasm. We're targeting pet owners with intelligence, style and sophistication. We tried to make the site provide a clean, easy and intuitive user experience. For example, almost everything on a member profile is treated as a link or tag to open infinite ways to find connections. For now it's beta and invitation only. In a few weeks we plan to add events, classified ads and discussion forums. We will also be forming partnerships with pet related organizations. We're very happy with the result. PetSmooch will soon become the destination of choice for people who are seeking to connect and network with other pets and pet owners online." said Mehmet Efe, president of Linkfinity, LLC.
