Connecting you with your friends

Our team is loving thingloop, in the past couple of weeks we've borrowed/lent a PS3 game, DVDs, books, some dresses, an airbed, a drill and a ladder!

But we're aware that a large number of our new users haven't managed to connect with many of their friends. This means that you're not yet enjoying any of the benefits of thingloop.

We are working hard on features to help you connect with your friends and get sharing. So we're really pleased to announce the release of our new email contact import feature (see the 'Friends' view). This enables you to retrieve your contacts from your email account and choose people to invite to join you on thingloop.

So why not give it a whirl, and let us know how you get on. Spread the word, and increase your loop.

Monumental May
So Monumental May was awesome, we saw a 1000% increase in the number of users, despite falling somewhat short of our £100k total of items.

We are expecting a large increase in the number of items on the site, as people begin connecting with more of their friends and have people to share with! Thanks for your patience and perseverance as we build critical mass.
