The site is based on the premise that “there are extraordinary people all around just waiting to get discovered,” but that’s where any similarity of “The Best” ends. You see, exclusive here seems to be pretty inclusive. They’re just coming at social networking from an entirely different angle – and one we think you’ll appreciate.
According to redandblack.com, At The Pool “is differentiating itself from other social networks by making users pick their interests first and then add users with similar interests. It is essentially the reverse Facebook.”
But that’s not all. At The Pool focuses on users’ interests first because the whole point of the site is to make connections with like-minded peeps IN PERSON. Gasp! Yep, this social platform may just bring “social” back to something resembling our previous face-to-face reality. Time to hit the gym.
At The Pool introduces you to a new person each day based on four criteria: location, history, interests, and intent (pools). We connect you with amazing people in the areas that interest you the most. Think of us like the host of a party — someone who knows both of you, what you’re into, where you’re from, and more. Like any good host, we make an introduction because we know you’ll get along. At The Pool introduces you to fascinating people, delivered directly to your email once a day.
We believe every person has something unique to share — a unique talent, a unique perspective, a unique story. At The Pool wants to make it easier to find those amazing people. We facilitate connections to further the spread of ideas, encourage innovation and help you realize your potential.
They’re a hit at college campuses. So yes, the crowd it’s attracting seem to be in the 30 and under range, but we’re sure it could expand out to the “olds” too. Facebook did, right?
