)-- WorldFriends, one of the world’s leading international social networking services, today announced that it has launched the WorldFriends Facebook application. The WorldFriends application enables any Facebook user to find new friends with common interests from WorldFriends’ more than 2 million registered members from 200+ different countries including 140,000 language teachers, browse more than 1 million photos uploaded by members, and share travel advice and tips. With the recent launch of its Trips and Cities feature, WorldFriends is one of the easiest ways to find new friends in any city in the world. To try the WorldFriends application in Facebook visit: http://apps.facebook.com/worldpenpals/.
“This new WorldFriends application represents ‘pen pals 2.0′ for the Facebook generation. Although I’m old enough to have actually had a pen-and-paper-based pen pal when I was young, I think this WorldFriends application is a hundred times better, faster and more gratifying than what we used to do with stamps and envelopes. In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the WorldFriends community is its cross-culture and cross-border nature and we are delighted to open it to Facebook users so that they can meet new friends from foreign cultures and thus help to increase world harmony,” said Dominic Penaloza, founder and CEO of WorldFriends.
WorldFriends is the world’s leading multi-lingual travel and language exchange community. WorldFriends offers people a high quality environment in which to enjoy ‘internationally minded’ socializing, and to meet new friends with common interests, especially in the areas of travel, culture and language learning. WorldFriends Networks aims to promote global harmony by easing language barriers and culture barriers, resulting in greater cross-culture communication. Over 2 million people from 237 countries, including more than 140,000 language teachers, have registered as WorldFriends members, and use WorldFriends to meet new friends in cities they travel to, to find language exchange partners, penpals and teachers, and to meet other internationally-minded people. WorldFriends already offers service in five languages: Japanese, English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean.
