Music based find-a-friend and dating app Tastebuds.fm has acquired competitor Moosify. Both apps facilitate introductions based on musical taste. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. It's apparently a user and tech based acquisition with about 100,000 users being transitioned frrom Moosify to Tastebuds in the the coming days.
“We’ve been in contact with the guys at moosify for a while as we’ve always been a fan of what they’ve been building and their mobile-first approach,” Tastebuds co-founder Alex Parish told TechCrunch. “We were looking for opportunities to do something together and we felt like the time was right to join forces and create the largest music dating network, so we can match more people more effectively.”
Founded in 2011, Tastebuds says they are already profitable thanks to a premium Backstage Pass paid offering.
