Consumer agency Uproar Communications will launch TalkOntheTube.com to the media and promote the website to the three million Londoners who use the Underground daily.
Website founder Neil Martin conceived of TalkOntheTube.com after meeting a woman he liked on the commute home but failing to get her number. Alongside the usual social networking features of profiles, pictures and videos, the site also features ‘Second Chance’ message boards to find people that caught your eye on the tube, ‘Fan Requests’ to tell other users that you’d like to get to know them better, and a restaurant booking service for arranging dates.
Uproar Communications will capitalise on the site’s spokesperson, Big Brother contestant Ziggy Lichman (pictured). Lichman, a former member of the aptly named boyband Northern Line, will host a weekly blog on the site.
