MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ:MEET) , the public market leader for social discovery, has launched a new “Stickers” feature to let users express themselves creatively via chat. Stickers, which are now available on the Android platform, enable the sending of emoticons, expressions (“lol,” “omg,” and many more), and virtual gifts like “flowers” and “stuffed animals” inside the chat experience. Stickers help users add more personality to their chats.

MeetMe users can download their first two Sticker packs for free and buy additional packs for 150 Credits (approximately USD $3.00), which can be purchased through the Google Play Store or earned by referring friends to MeetMe or completing actions on behalf of advertisers. MeetMe plans to update Stickers frequently with new content, as well as periodically with holiday, seasonal, and other theme-related images.

“Stickers enable visual expressions that can enhance the chat experience,” said Geoff Cook, CEO of MeetMe. “We believe Stickers should drive both increased monetization and user engagement. It’s a natural product for us as we seek to build the pre-eminent mobile chat app for connecting with new people.”

MeetMe plans to make the Stickers feature available soon for iPhone as well.
