Parent Company Of Manhunt Wants To Make Hooking Up Even Easier, Acquires Jack’d

Get your smartphones ready, boys, because finding hot men to hook up with may be getting even more convenient.

Online Buddies, the parent company of the venerable gay hook up dating site Manhunt, announced today that is has acquired Jack’d, one of the top location-based gay dating apps in the world.

“We are pleased to announce the addition of Jack’d to our portfolio of social networking products,” Online Buddies co-founder Jonathan Crutchley said in a press release, “and we’re grateful to Yosuke for joining us to help expand and improve Jack’d service.”

Online Buddies CEO Adam Segel added: “Our goal is to have the broadest and best portfolio of mobile and desktop products to connect gay men everywhere, and this acquisition is an ideal fit with that strategy. I believe Jack’d is positioned to become the number one gay dating app in the world.”

With the acquisition, Online Buddies will become the largest company in the world to connect men seeking men. Jack’d, Manhunt, and the Manhunt Daily blog receive a combined total of 2 million unique visits daily.

This is certainly exciting news. Although hopefully it goes better than their acquisition of a few years back.

    Will Jack’d still suck? or will Manhunt integrate their members into Jack’d and ditch its lousy app?

    @Sweet Boy: ROFLMAO. Truer words were never spoken.

    Hooking up is the cornerstone of the gay sub-culture. Meaningful relationships are for lesbians and old people, everybody knows that.

    @Bfrenz: He’s ridiculously hot.

    @NateB79: We could be twins. I looked just like him 20 years ago LOL

    @buybioniconitunes: Didn’t they adopt some restrictions on nudity?

  • viveutvivas

    @Autiechrist, are they like Grindr where they adopted restrictions on showing anything lower than the navel?

  • Alan down in Florida

    @AuntieChrist: 20 years ago he was probably just past puberty and was probably gawky and hairless.
