CYBERSPACE — Wealth 2 You has announced the launch of its new gay online social networking site, GayHookups.net.

“We are launching this new site with what we consider to be the best [parts] of other dating sites out there,” GayHookups.net President and CEO Mitchell Esmond said, “and we’re bringing it all together. We will offer high-end features such as instant video messaging and online video chatting. We have also developed a search and browsing capability on the site that allows members to search for matches based specifically on criteria chosen from other member profiles.”

The objective of GayHookups.net is to bring the gay community closer by using the latest tools in online communication. The company is excited about this new online service, and expects to increase membership to 100,000 active members by the end of the year.

Initial memberships are free to all individuals. Free members will be able to browse the database based on location, ZIP code, gender and age, among other criteria.

“With the launch of this site, the company hopes to extend its members list while providing opportunities to all gay singles who are looking for hooking up, dating, friendship, love or even serious relationships,” said A.J. Lippert, GayHookups.net’s director of marketing. “Gay and bisexual singles from all walks of life will be able to add up to 10 photos to their profiles to make them appealing. Members will also be able to rate other members’ photos and profiles, which is a favorite on the site. The higher the rating, the more likely it will show up in featured profiles.”

“We have made tremendous efforts to make GayHookups.net the most vibrant gay social networking site on the Internet,” Esmond said. “While other gay websites are filled with individuals who are into playing games, we hope to develop more serious members who know what they want. The ages of our members range from 18 to 80, and they enjoy each moment of the online social networking experience they get here. Our members will not be hiding behind all those features other sites use to allow a potentially unsafe and unpleasant experience. Online meeting opportunities are the wave of the future, and as online providers, we need to be responsible and establish standards that will help our members enjoy safe online social networking.”

GayHookups.net will follow a stringent privacy policy at the behest of its online members. It is committed to safeguard its members’ information, including emails, addresses and contact details. Personal information will never be sold or rented out to any third party organizations.
