EduHookUps.com, a startup from kids at the University of Chicago, had perhaps the best shot going at becoming the “Facebook of Sex,” a web nickname that any number of social networking sites have coveted for years. I say “had,” because as of today, the domain name has been sold and apparently the whole site is being rebooted. All users must establish new accounts. From the site:
UPDATE: eduHookups will be continuing under new management. Effective May 23rd, 2011, all user data generated to date (posts, private messages, etc.) will be reset in the interest of privacy and security. The registration system will be re-enabled, and all current members will need to re-register.
I wrote about this over at Sex Feed.
