Looking at Facebook Groups and Pages in a New Light
SAN FRANCISCO, March 27, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO , March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — YouNoodle, the online network for entrepreneurs, is proud to announce the launch of their newest application – YouNoodle Groups . YouNoodle Groups is a Facebook app designed to increase the efficiency of networking between students in University and College clubs/organizations, by bringing an entrepreneurial context to Facebook Groups and Fan Pages . YouNoodle Groups is not just for students, it provides valuable insights to Group administrators about the entrepreneurial pain points of their members, which will help determine demand for content and resources.
According to Rebeca Hwang , CEO of YouNoodle: “YouNoodle Groups is accelerating the next generation of innovators by making it easy for them to discover and connect with peers who are most relevant to their entrepreneurial needs.”
YouNoodle Groups connects with preexisting Facebook Groups and Pages and asks members to identify the “Next Step” they would like to achieve as an entrepreneur. Once identified, the app reveals the members of the group who would be most relevant in helping them achieve those goals. The app aims to not only give users a sense of the professional focus of the members of a Page or Group but also acts as a catalyst for new connections, projects, and offline meetings – fuelling innovation and collaboration.
As the network grows, YouNoodle Groups will extend beyond the group itself to display the most relevant matches in a geographic region. By developing collaborative ecosystems within campuses and cities, the app will bridge the gaps between student organizations, departments, schools, and external groups or associations.
YouNoodle Groups is currently being tested on the YouNoodle Facebook Page, and will be releasing to University and College campuses across the US over the next few months. Administrators of Facebook Pages or Groups can request an early invite through www.YouNoodle.com or email Christina Hug at
YouNoodle is an online network for entrepreneurs as well as the company behind Podium, a software as a service (SaaS) platform that manages the application and judging processes for 7 out of the world's top 10 universities in addition to organizations like Intel, Amazon, NASA, and Start-Up Chile. Podium 2.0 was released this month with a sleek new interface, white-label capabilities, and an unmatched user experience for organizers.
