KizMeet is a dating website that offers users a simple, flexible service. The user can sign up or connect using their existing Facebook profile. Users are not limited in what they can do and who they can interact with on KizMeet. The homepage displays new users as well as user who have just been introduced. Users can help other users meet one another and earn status as a matchmaker in the KizMeet community. The site focuses on social networking as a way to get to know others and meet a potential date. User profiles contain all the typical details of other dating services, such as the user’s name, location, age, a photo, who they would like to meet, how far they are willing to go to meet others and a user-created bio and headline. Users can also vote on matches suggested for friends to assist those they know in their search for a date.
KizMeet is a product of Spark Networks. Spark Networks was founded in 2007 and is based in Beverly Hills, California. The current team includes CEO Adam Berger. KizMeet was created to give users an easier, more social way to get to know others. The concept focuses on making it just as easy to explore a potential online attraction as it is to “meet someone new at a trusted friend’s party.” KizMeet is currently in beta.
The social elements included in KizMeet make it unique when compared to the many other dating services available on the web. Each dating service includes social elements however KizMeet encourages users to get friends involved and explore social circles to meet new people. This word of mouth system can help users make more meaningful connections.
Visitors to the KizMeet website are greeted by a rather plain, but effective design. The white background is offset by hints of pastel green and blue. The KizMeet log appears in green over the site’s slogan: “More good night kisses. Fewer dating misses.” The homepage also contains color images of smiling people (perhaps representative of the social circles formed and strengthened on KizMeet). The user can sign in using the options in the upper, right hand corner of the page. The right hand side highlights featured matchmakers and recent introductions.
A new user can become a part of the KizMeet community by clicking the blue and white “Connect” button in the upper right hand corner. Doing so takes the user to Facebook, where they are asked to log in and allow KizMeet to access their profile. Other users can click the orange and white “Start Searching” or “Start Matchmaking” buttons, also found on the homepage. Singles are asked to provide their gender, who they would like to meet, country location, zip code, name, date of birth, a password, email address and profile details.
