AJAX Site MatchActivity.com Launched

New Web 2.0 Site Changes How People Connect Online and Meet Offline

MatchActivity headquartered in Los Angeles, has announced the launching of a new interactive social activities site. The site combines activity postings by members, with online auction time deadlines (www.matchactivity.com). MatchActivity founder, Yoni Avital, created the concept of the site with the idea that activities speak louder than words, and instead of reading profiles about what people say they are, people post activities of what they would like to do.

MatchActivity serves as a unique invitational tool to help people get out and meet in person rather than spending time browsing through profiles on internet sites and sending winks.

MatchActivity lets its members immediately plan an activity, set the time and place and find likeminded people with similar interests. The activities that members post are time sensitive and create the feel of an auction deadline. With specific activity postings, members can find others who share the same interests allowing the activity itself to serve as a great icebreaker. A MatchActivity member can post an activity such as karaoke, salsa dancing, hiking, a game of pool, etc., to the site allowing others to know they are interested in that same activity. As the date approaches, the member then chooses from the responders who they would like to meet and have join them.

Founder and President Yoni Avital, believes that focusing on activities allows members to easily convert virtual flirting into actual meetings. "My best dates happened when we weren't interviewing one another, but just having fun. MatchActivity enables people to meet, by doing something they both enjoy," said Avital.

Using the latest Web 2.0 technology, MatchActivity guarantees users a friendlier web experience. The site uses innovative functionalities such as AJAX, which allows members to send messages without losing the screen. "Everything about the site is meant to be practical," Avital explains. "From our technology to our methodology, we simply want to create the most effective means for people to meet in the real world."
