    (the banner is real, and is located in oakland, according to a guy in another forum)

    The domain is http://www.primehangout.com and it is one of the ugliest sites ever.

    The founder/CEO talks about the site:

    How deluded must they be?

    My guess is it's a project of some rich guy who has money to throw away..

    My thoughts exactly. Afterall, for most people it matters how good you can sell, not how good is the product...
    Just think about it, this sh***y network is now known Worldwide thanks to that banner. That's how advertising works...

    Meh maybe in the short term. If it was a good service then fair play but long term it's a money sink.

    I don't know... most times it's just some idiot with 0 creativity who thinks like this: "Hmm... how can I make some money? I know, I should create the next facebook and make millions!"

    When fb was born .. there were other popular social networking sites which the new generation do not know about. But if this guy is going for a long term ... then defo he has something inside ... may be a long long plan and creativity too ! Lets see what he can deliver

    Lol when I opened the website I kinda got eye cancer and immediately thought:

    "Knock knock, it's the 90's and they want their website back"

    Sweet nostalgia!

    Ahahahaha

    Dear me, this venture has no chance whatsoever.

    To begin with competing with Facebook is a non-starter, unless you have tens of millions of $$$'s.

    But not only that, he's tried to combine every different type of popular website, dating etc into one - the amount of time that would take to manage is ridiculous.

    I don't understand why some people get fixated on ideas which simply will not work and pursue them often at great financial cost.

    If it was a new website/service that was innovative, that would be a different ball game, but he's unsuccessfully re-inventing the wheel.

    All I see is an opportunity to exploit for free.
    Bring in the noobs!
    Everyone's eyes are so fixed on what this guy is doing and not what they are.
    He's doing all the spending, I'm sticking my links up.

    Just seen he charges for ads.
    Going to have to find another way to exploit it when it has some members.
