First, I’ve been watching this site count-down to launch for a long time. They finally launched (early!) about an hour ago.
Handshakes is an online social networking community that connects people through their personal networks and allows them to meet others, find jobs, roommates, buy and sell goods, and perform other transactions. Members create their own profiles, and those profiles are then shown to other members of this site.
This appears to be one site in a larger “connected” social network, although they don’t make that clear.”Handshake” appears to be the parent of the web of sites, but I don’t know who they are, how they are related, or how my data would be used from site to site, even if I elect to join only one site.
I may visit them again in a few days and see if they just had a brain fart at launch… but perhaps not.
