Skout's hit the One-Million Mark!

I've got even more exciting news on the Skout front, Flirts!While you're out there on the lookout for your next hook-up or date, over 200,000 new users have signed up to "join the hunt for love" in June alone.

Which means (and this is big news) we've hit the one-million mark!

VentureBeat (http://venturebeat.com/2010/07/02/one-million-sign-up-for-skout/) has a great article boasting the success of Skout, and we'd love for you to take a look.

User no. 1,000,000 is David Gerber, a 25-year old investment banker from New York, who goes by the handle “StockyBroker.” Gerber said he was lured in by his friends, who were already using Skout, and seems to be finding it worthwhile. “There is no downside to anything that makes meeting women easier during the summer when so many people are leaving the city every single weekend,” Gerber said.
