Talk Five

Boing Boing reports on one of those ideas that seem pretty pointless if you’re over 25. But if you’re under 25, it’s utterly crovey.

TalkNow, by Mobilehookup, allows members to chat/flirt on their mobiles for 5 minutes, without revealing their phone numbers. After that, if both parties decide they want to go further, they can find out each other’s details.

The service is a spin out of their SMS based dating/flirting product where singles can initiate a contact with an SMS via Mobilehookup. TalkNow allows them to get a little closer, without compromising anonymity.

It’s a kind of phone-based speed dating.
