When it comes to gay online social activity we all think “Grindr” which has become the community of choice for the gay scene since its inception back in 2009. Grindr offers advice, information, hook-ups, gear and events to those who sign up to the online community.
But hot on its heels is a new app all the way from China, Blued is an iOS & Android application which is installed via the App Store or Google Play.
Blued focused their services on mobile social networking for the gay community and was founded in September 2011. The team behind the concept includes staff who had previously worked for Alibaba, Baidu & Sina.
Services offered by Blued include free voice and text messages complete with location information. All this is happening in real time so your friends can see what you are doing and where you are in the world. Making matching so easy and precise.
With their mobile positioning, you can find like-minded individuals within your local for hook-ups or chats.
This takes online dating in to a whole new stratosphere.
