Who lives near you?

WhoLivesNearYou homepage in July 2004 started posing questions such as ‘ever seen a neighbor that you have always wanted to get to know but didn’t have the courage to talk to?’ and ‘want to get to know people working or studying in the same area as you so you can share a car?’


This singaporean version of friendster’s postal code-based registration allows users to chat or arrange live meeting with people in their immediate neighborhood. Neighbors are categorized by their proximity – in the same block, within a one-block radius, and within a 15-minute walk.

The site attracted 4,000 registrations within two days of its early July launch and currently has more than 50,000 subscribers, most between the ages of 18 and 30.
