What is Thread?
Two people destined to be together are connected by an invisible thread, according to ancient Chinese mythology.
That may or may not be true, but in reality you are connected to thousands of people in life and online through mutual friends. Wouldn’t it be great to see who those “friends of friends” are in one screen and sort by gender and relationship status? That’s where Thread.com fits it.
Thread is not your typical dating service. We don’t have you fill out 238-question surveys, obscure quizzes, or match you up based on favorite movies (at least not yet). Thread expands your social network by exposing your 2nd degree connections, but we leave it up to you to ask your friends for introductions to their single friends.
It’s also a site where you can try your hand at matchmaking. Do you have a single friend who’d be perfect for a colleague? Use Thread to forward profiles to your friends and see if they’re interested in being set up. It’s true, you could introduce them in person, but Thread.com is making it easier and faster to introduce people online rather than hosting yet another dinner party.
How do I get started?
Thread is built entirely Facebook platform, which means you can log into Thread using your Facebook ID and password. We make your Facebook profile information available on Thread, and show you which of your friends are also on the site. Check out this video for more information on logging into Thread.com in less than a minute!
What about privacy?
Why not use a typical dating site?
Because not everyone is on a dating site, but practically everyone is on Facebook. With Thread.com, you’ll get the inside scoop on your potential dates. Your mutual friends will be able to tell you what they’re like, their relationship status, and whether or not they think you’d be a good fit. It’s a screening service that no dating site can provide. With your friend as matchmaker, you’ll never be misled about a person’s relationship status again.
