THE Site to Be On

What's this—another social networking site??  Well, not exactly.  Unlike the other popular leading sites, MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter, Lunch.com  uses your personal likes and dislikes to scientifically connect you with other members; it keeps a tab on what kind of things you like and makes no assumption that you are already seeking a connection with long lost friends, family, or coworkers. "It's not who you know, but what you know" on Lunch.com.

I really enjoy Lunch.com's strategy to build each member's personality.  Instead of relying solely on account settings or a profile editor that you have to complete when you sign up, Lunch.com employs the "review and rate" technology and associates your likes and dislikes with YOU.  Consequently, Lunch.com can offer you a network of friends, or "similarity network" as it's called, where you can begin to meet people who genuinely share your interests.

Lunch.com has all the bells and whistles that are expected of a social media site: user photo, messaging, listed interests, forums, a member browser, status updates, news feeds, and followers but what keeps Lunch.com separate from its competitors is its ability to grow with its members.  In a world where social networking sites have a definite shelf life, I think this unique feature is what will allow Lunch.com to stay relevant.

So what's it worth to add Lunch.com to your bookmarks and make it a regular part of your social day?  In my opinion, it's worthy of even more loyalty—I am already beginning to phase out the once ultra-popular MySpace in exchange for the dynamic, new Lunch.com.

I completely agree, I just logged on to MySpace today for the first time in a year and realized I haven't missed a thing. That would not be the case with Lunch! There is always something new :)

Okay, here's that odd circumstance where I am being offered something for nothing and whining about it.     As you can probably tell from my rating, I generally like Lunch.com. One of the site owners found my work on Epinions.com and asked me to drop in and give Lunch.com a quick whirl, even offering a little bit of payment as an incentive. With Epinions.com swirling ominously around the suckage drain at the moment, I shrugged and said "Well, why not?" And did I mention Lunch.com …

I blogged about Lunch.com on my personal blog (Sharrie.TV) 2 days ago.   Here it is:   As some of you might have know, I was into travelogues many years ago. Spent majority of my waking hours on VirtualTourist. Made some great friends along the way too & got to see many parts of the world which I otherwise wouldn't have step into!      Well, the boss JR Johnson sold it off (I believe he did unless I got my facts wrong!) and is beginning to …

Well, they got me.  I can't remember exactly when I came to Lunch.com.  It was in late December, and when I first got here, I must admit, I was not nearly as impressed.  But they were gracious enough to send me an invite and so I accepted.  Because I was curious.  The site was, for the most part nice, and they just kept improving.  Are there any immediate problems I have with the site now?  Well, not that haven't already been addressed …

Dear nonexistent people who who keep popping up at random: If you're only posting a phony profile of a person who doesn't actually exist, don't follow my work! You're a waste of space and having your name on my followers list is a discredit to me. If you're not an active poster and/or have never been an active poster and/or have no intention of ever being an active poster, you have no business placing me - or really ANYONE AT ALL - on your follow list!

   Well, I'm not going to lie to you. Other than logging out for 15 minute coffee breaks at work or signing off for the end of the day, lunch is what I look forward to. Considering the work I do, lunch can never be heavy nor can I indulge myself in something too sweet. Perhaps a snack that's low in carbs, salts, & sugars will suffice while I catch up on emails or what not. Lunch is a very peaceful time of day where you kick back & relax while …

Please consider that this is a fictionalized account of how Lunch.com came to be. Once upon a time, there was an empty space in the information super-highway… Two exciting creative women met in the world of flashing lights.. One was called Healthy Rache. Another was called LingEatsCake. Healthy Rache insists that this empty spot in the cyberspace be made into her own image that it be made "Healthy" and full of energy and life. LingEatsCake insists that it be filled by all the sweetness of life--love …

So much variety, so much to talk about and hear about for a website. Awesome.
review by . May 22, 2009
I was invited and joined Lunch.com a few days ago.If you are into social networks this is a new twist to the original thing. But that is my first "but": I am on a few social networks and somehow never really got friends with them - facebook, twitter, perhaps I just do not know enough people at the beginning or perhaps as a German I am somehow on the wrong continent, or perhaps I am not - any longer! :-) or :-( - spending so much time in front of a computer, but somehow I feel quickly bored or somehow …

I'll be honest- at first I didn't get it. I joined Lunch.com because a friend asked me to join and give feedback. I complained mostly. I didn't understand why I was here. "I already have myspace. I already use yelp. There are a million review sites out there! The worst thing about Friendster was the stupid network- what are you DOING?!"    I've also had an issue with sites that try to "read" who I am, in that they never get a full view. Because I happen to like Will Smith and …
