Are You Socially Elite? Get TickMe

PlanetAndrea just alerted me to this.
TickMeUK-based Search Engine Optimization (SEO) specliast David Naylor has just announced the launch of his new Social Networking site TickMe (TickMe – New Social Networking Site).

Ok, so you may or may not be socially inept, but the fact is that TickMe can help you expand your network, project a different persona in your profile, or simply generate more traffic for your blog, website, portal.

I’m expecting that Terry from Kineda will be coming over very shortly to set up something. And we could use more pictures of Scarlett Johannson and Japanese Race Queens, can’t we?

TickMe’s interesting because there’s a system in place to protect your ego.

According to David:

It’s a bit like Myspace/Faceparty but with more privacy and a dating slant. It’s all very simple. Log in and “tick” someone you like the look of. They won’t know you’ve ticked them unless they tick you back and you get a mutual tick! Cut out all the nonsense and be sure that the people you’re communicating with are on the same wavelength.

That may be true, but if you you look at the profiles:

TickMe

I’m not sure how I feel about my birthdate going out to everyone, especially if you’re particular about privacy.

Inherent in the TickMe’s assumptions is that if you’re a male, you’re ‘looking to meet women’. I guess it could offer more customization to factor in gays and bisexuals in time?

Minor grouses aside, the traffic is awesome, especially the site having made Digg.

Key to establishing your social presence on TickMe is to colonize the virtual space. Like domain names, once your group name is gone, your group name is gone!
Here’s a snapshot of my group affiliations at 1am:

and 8 hours later

Andrew Wee Group Affiliations 823am

TickMe’s user growth at the launch is fairly viral. Tap on that traffic to use it effectively.

The group chat functions works quite well too.

You might be surprised at some of the Internet Marketing luminaries you see on the site too.

    Cool, I found it through Graywolfs’ blog and happy to see a lot of familiar faces. Looks like the SEO crowd has taken Dave N’s invite and gone to town.

    I like the simplicity of it, I don’t think it will be that useful, but as more features are added, it may mean customers.

    I have my own Social Network in the works, it’s a fun and hopefully profitable space to be.

    I think Tickme is a really inventive site with it’s fun game of finding out who ticked you!
