What is LivingSocial?
LivingSocial was launched in 2007 and is owned by Groupon. It’s a marketplace that allows its registered users or members to purchase and share things to do in their city. In 2013, they have reached around 70 million users. The company was originally known as Hungry Machine with just four employees from Revolution Health Group. Their first major application was their Visual Bookshelf app on Facebook which allowed users to catalogue and share their favourite book with their friends. Later, they released PickYourFive and other Polls apps, making them the number one application developer on Facebook as measured by page views.
In 2009, they were acquired by BuyYourFriendADrink.com and LivingSocial launched a daily deals website, which since has become its highest grossing venture to date. Today, the marketplace provides a trusted, convenient source for finding value on everyday items an activities as well as identifying novel, enriching and fun experiences for their members to enjoy and share with their friends.
