UK launch of Yummy Pets: the social network for pets

Wednesday, 29 May 2013

Pet social networking site Yummy Pets has launched in the UK. The French "social petwork" describes itself as "a community website to serve pet parents" and currently has 150,000 members.

Profiles look similar to those of social networking sites such as Facebook, and include information such as status updates, photos, and lists of friends and fans. Users can also access a number of practical pet services, such as classified ads. Yummy Pets chose the UK as the next place to launch because "One in ten pets in the UK already has a social media presence," co-founders Matthieu Glayrouse and Mathieu Chollon told Wired.
