Local nightlife Web site enters the social networking fray
GoTime, a Seattle-based social networking Web site centered around entertainment and nightlife, has left public beta and is open for business. The site offers some nice features, including a handy venue filter, a customizable events calendar, and a list of active happy hours (I noticed nine happy hours open at 8:30 this morning — who knew?).
I tested the early version of the site a few months ago, and I noticed some welcome improvements from that early beta, including improved user-friendliness and toning down the testosterone levels in the design.
The site definitely has potential, and if GoTime added mobile features I could see it really taking off. But the big question, as the Seattle P.I. asks, is whether GoTime can entice enough Seattlites away from the already established list of networking and event Web sites such as MySpace, Yelp, Last.fm, etc.
Have you already joined GoTime? What do you think?
