MeetMe’s Android users now can create unique usernames to make it easy for members to share their MeetMe identity with real-life friends. For example, a user could choose a username like “Bob_Smith” and others could easily find that profile by visiting Users also may search in the Friends or Chat sections of the MeetMe app to easily find a particular username. Today the feature is available to a portion of MeetMe’s Android users and is expected to roll out to all Android users in the coming weeks.

“We expect the ability to share a MeetMe username easily with an offline friend will increase MeetMe’s virality,” said MeetMe CEO Geoff Cook. “We believe word of mouth is the primary driver for attracting new mobile users to MeetMe.
