BLUE LITHIUM LABS LAUNCHES FIRST ONLINE / OFFLINE SOCIAL NETWORK
MingleNow (www.MingleNow.com) Enables Users to Expand Social Lives, Explore New Places and Meet the People Who Go There, Online
MingleNow grew out of the observation that most of us have one group of friends in the offline world, and a different group that you interact with on social networks, said Gurbaksh Chahal, founder, chairman and CEO of BlueLithium. One group of friends you hang out with in clubs and restaurants and a separate group you interact with on MySpace or FaceBook. It seemed to us that there should be a bridge between the twoa true offline/online social network, so we built it.
